ERIE – A new Sonic Drive-In restaurant is set to open at Erie’s Millcreek Mall this week.

Restaurant owner Kevin DiPirro told he hoped to open the establishment Tuesday, but due to government inspection, it is now scheduled to open Wednesday.

The restaurant has, so far, hired 100 people in the Erie area who will use Tuesday for additional training.

The restaurant will feature 15 drive-in spaces where customers can order and eat in their vehicles.

Meals at Sonic are traditionally brought out by carhops on roller skates.

A drive-through lane and indoor seating will also be available.

The new Sonic sits on the site of the former Sears automotive center at Millcreek Mall.
