It looks like Albany is going to be the destination for the next Capital Region Sonic.

A few months ago, it looked like Clifton Park would be the home for the next Sonic in the area. After those plans fell through, it looks like Albany is up next!

According to a Times Union report, Sonic plans to open a new restaurant at the old Howard Johnson's location on Southern Boulevard. There is now a sign at the location announcing Sonic's arrival. The area being developed will include multiple tenants according to the TU report.

Trinity Realty Group, who is developing the site, has a post on it's website that says the Sonic Grand Opening should take place sometime in the Spring of 2019.

I am actually a little jealous on this one, As a Clifton Park resident, I was really looking froward to having a Sonic close by. The kids love it, and it is super affordable to bring the family out for a meal. I'll guess we'll have to just keep making the trip to the Latham or Troy, and maybe Albany when it opens in the Spring.
