If you happen to drive by Sonic Drive-In you'll see there are garbage cans blocking the entrance with bags covering the enter and exit signs. Not a good look for Sonic Drive-Thru, a convenient spot for a quick bite to eat or fun treat on the corner of 1st and Nob Hill. But what happened?

According to a mom of a couple of the employees they were notified on Tuesday that it would be the last day. Also according to her they were trying to get new franchise owners.

Along with this news it was found out that many other area Sonic Drive-In locations are also marked as temporarily closed.


Taking a look at the Sonic locations on their website you'll also find Ellensburg, Kennewick, Ferndale, Pasco, Poulsbo, Wenatchee -- all temporarily closed.

I'm not sure if it's the same franchise over for all of them or if each one had their own.

It may not mean it's closed forever, though. There's still some hope. Maybe if a new franchise owner steps in to take care of the Yakima location we'll be back but, in the meantime, we'll see what happens next.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
