Aside from Chipotle, a Church’s Chicken restaurant will replace the long-closed Sonic Drive-In on North Woodland Boulevard in DeLand. Sonic fans have been saddened ever since the drive-in style restaurant closed it’s doors years ago while locals have often wondered what would take the place of the property. The southern-style fried chicken restaurant is anticipated to be a welcome site, but the existing structure has to be torn down, because the current structure is unsuited for Church’s. Demolition of the old Sonic is slated to begin anytime and construction will likely begin soon after.
Finally, the DeLand Waffle House is expected to begin construction soon, also. The Waffle House will be build on an empty lot at 1120 N. Woodland Blvd. The owners hope that it will draw a crowd from Stetson University students and stand out as an iconic estabnbilshement among other breakfast franchises such as IHOP (or IHOB), Denny’s, and Perkins along N. Woodland Blvd. Waffle House is a southern-style short order breakfast restaurant.
