If you drive along Route 422 through North Londonderry Township you’ll see the shell of what was once a Sonic Drive-in.
The Oklahoma City-based chain opened this location back in 2007, bringing a dose of 50’s nostalgia to Lebanon County in the form of roller-skating servers and carhop fare.
Sonic shut its doors back in 2016, and for most of the time since then, the property has sat abandoned.
More recently, the car stalls and Sonic signage have come down down, a relative uptick in activity that got the rumor mill turning.
One of the restaurants that keeps popping up in these rumors? Atlanta-based purveyor of poultry and waffle fries, Chick-Fil-A.
Several readers have reached out to LebTown with questions about the veracity of these rumors, so we reached out to the company for comment.
“We are always evaluating potential new locations in the hopes of serving existing and new customers great food with remarkable service,” said Jackie Jags, a representative for Chick-Fil-A in an email to LebTown.
“While we hope to be able to expand in Lebanon County in the future, we do not have any new locations planned at this time.”
LebTown also reached out to North Londonderry Township Office, which verified that no new plans for the site have yet been filed.
Chick-Fil-A currently has locations in nearby Harrisburg and Lancaster, as well as a stand inside Hersheypark.
