Poulsbo Sonic getting built in a hurry


After months of inactivity, Poulsbo’s future Sonic Drive-In is getting built in a hurry.

Walls started going up last week at the site off Viking Way at Highway 305. Much of the structure took shape over the weekend. Workers were busy framing Sunday morning.

sonic2The highly-anticipated fast food joint was initially expected to open late last year. Alterations to the site plan delayed construction. The city issued a building permit for the project April 13.

The 2,150-square-foot restaurant will be somewhat unique for the chain. Last we’d seen, the building designs included a patio seating area with garage-style doors that could be rolled up during sunny weather and closed when it’s cold.

I’ll let you know when I hear an opening date.

  1. So glad to hear they are finally building! I have a facebook page called “We NEED a Sonic in Kitsap” and posted this on there. There are hundreds of people who are now happy to see that it’s being built! Thanks for the update!

  2. We definitely do not NEED another fast food restaurant in Poulsbo (or drug store or grocery store or poorly built housing development). This town needs a new mayor and planning department.

  3. I completely agree with Alex. The mayor and other city council members should be looking for ways to revitalize the downtown area and offer some incentives to get local vendors to come and STAY in downtown.
