A Sonic Drive-In-turned-barbecue restaurant in Martinez is changing back.
Sonic will reopen at 498 Furys Ferry Road in early August under new management. The chain drive-in restaurant closed Dec. 31.
The new franchisee, Mark Irvin, operates a dozen other Sonic s across the metro Augusta area, said his daughter and marketing coordinator, Jessica Irvin.
“The rest of the Sonics have been hugely successful here,” she said.
