The old Sonic drive-in on Godfrey Road will soon have the smell of pizza wafting from the premises.  The owner of the Little Caesar’s Pizza franchise at Godfrey Road and Crestwood Drive has bought the building, and will soon begin renovations.

Godfrey Building and Zoning Administrator Laura Dixon tells The Big Z some repairs will be needed.

Work on the building will begin in about three weeks, and when finished will be a drive-through, according to Dixon.  That sonic and two others were closed by the Illinois Department of Revenue in July of 2012 when the previous owner apparently failed to report sales tax and employee income tax withholdings.
