Construction has begun at the site of a new Sonic drive-in restaurant on Dual Highway near Edgewood Drive in Hagerstown.

Crews broke ground March 16 at 1710 Dual Highway, with plans of opening by mid-May, a Sonic franchise official said Monday.

Nick Stamnos, director of operations, said a job fair is planned for April 21 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in a conference room at the Hampton Inn, 1716 Dual Highway, just behind the construction site.

The company seeks to hire 80 or more entry-level positions, including cooks, skating carhops, drive-through workers and switchboard operators, Stamnos said.


Stamnos said they were looking to hire management personnel immediately, and interested applicants should send resumes to

Stamnos said they have received “a lot of requests” from people in the area wanting Sonic to come to Hagerstown. With about 40,000 cars driving by daily on U.S. 40, he said the spot was perfect for the new drive-in.

“I feel it’s going to be very successful there,” Stamnos said.

Franchise owner John Louderback of Sonic Outpost LLC also runs a Sonic restaurant on Norland Avenue in Chambersburg, Pa., which opened in July 2010.

Open 7 a.m. to midnight daily, the Hagerstown restaurant will offer a full breakfast menu at all hours of the day, Stamnos said.
