Last week, we answered Rick Pickard's question about when Five Guys is scheduled to open on the Seacoast of New Hampshire.
But Richard, another Patch reader, said what he really wanted to know was when another popular national restaurant chain is coming to New Hampshire.
"Actually, what I'd like to know is rather than another 5 Guys, which seem to be poping up EVERYWHERE, I'd like to know when we are going to finally see our OWN Sonic Drive-In! Currently you have to travel to either Peabody or Willmington MA to enjoy the Sonic experience."
As Richard pointed out, the closest Sonic restaurants are in Massachusetts, and right now there are no locations in the Granite State.
So we asked Patrick Lenow, Sonic's vice president of public relations, if the chain has any plans to expand into New Hampshire anytime soon.
"New Hampshire is absolutely in our future growth plans," Lenow said via email. "We are primarily a franchised company. Entry into New Hampshire requires that right mix of location and a great franchise partner(s)."
Lenow said Sonic is currently considering its options in New Hampshire, and qualified franchise candidates are welcome. Details on what it takes to become a Sonic franchisee can be found at sonicdrivein.com/franchise.
