The new Sonic began construction the beginning of July and they have hopes to complete the project around late September, according to John Goddard. “This project is different than our other Sonics. It will have a bigger patio that can be enclosed during the winter months, a big playground, outdoor bathrooms for the public. It will also have popsicle stands to accommodate boats, RV’s and even big trucks,” Goddard said.

The Heber Springs Sonic is Goddard’s and Ricky Davis’ baby, of their 31 stores across the state.  “It will be the pride and joy of the United States,” Goddard went on to say, “It will be unique. It will also be geothermal, and there will be nothing like it in the U.S.”
