Sonic opens in Waterloo

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A new drive-in Sonic restaurant in Waterloo receives a warm welcome for opening day.  Vehicles lined up to try the place out.

More than 425 people reportedly applied for 87 full- and part-time positions. Employees have been training since last week.

The economic crisis was a concern for the Cedar Rapids-based franchisee, which already owns three other Sonic restaurants in Cedar Rapids and Coralville.

Owners say they plan to build five more Sonic restaurants, with locations possibly in Cedar Falls and Dubuque.
