CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Chambersburg's new Sonic Drive-in was hopping Sunday, a day before it was officially open.
The restaurant on Norland Avenue held a "family and friends" event for eight hours as an opportunity to work the kinks out before opening at 8 a.m. Monday. Patrons were supposed to present a flier to access the business during the event, but a number of passers-by also got to try things like cherry limeades, tater tots and footlong hot dogs.
"We were able to accommodate some of the public, so we could challenge our kitchen and control the flow," said Kris Louderback, whose family owns the franchise.
When arriving at Sonic, motorists can head to one of three places. They can park in one of 23 stalls, enter the drive-thru lane or park in the general parking area.
