WAUKESHA — The lone Sonic Drive-In location in the county is now closed — albeit temporarily, the company announced Friday.

The restaurant, 2208 E. Moreland Blvd., has had a change of ownership recently. With the new owners taking over the location, there was a need to update the facility and improve the customer experience, Sonic Vice President of Development Drew Ritger said.

“The new franchisee is working on a few facility improvements and focusing on crew training while the location is closed in anticipation of reopening in the near future,” Ritger said. “Sonic greatly values the patience of the Waukesha community during this short closure, and looks forward to serving great food, drinks and desserts again soon.”

A reopening date has not yet been set.
