UPDATE: Sonic Joining Wendy’s in High Desert’s Growing Roster of Businesses

On Tuesday, May 22nd, it was confirmed that a brand-new Sonic will be joining Wendy’s Hamburgers alongside Eastlake Boulevard, at the Peyton intersection, just in front of Eastlake High.

The banner announcing the new location, and the need for workers went up over the weekend. There is no set date for the restaurant to open.

Once again, two national companies have chosen Horizon and the High Desert Area as homes for their respective brands.

Dollar General and Wendy’s Hamburgers are the two newest editions to the growing roster of businesses here in our town.

The first – Dollar General will be hosted a grand opening at their newest location (14840 Horizon Boulevard) – just a mile north of Horizon High School – on Saturday, March 10th.

The newest location marks the 31st Dollar General in the El Paso area and the 2nd in Horizon.

The other national chain, Wendy’s, put up an announcement banner on Monday, just in front of Eastlake High, in the same shopping area as Daddy-O’s Car Wash.

Wendy’s will be the 12th national, fast food franchise to call the Horizon-area home.

As crews have spent the week preparing the lot for construction, eager residents have snapped photos of the location and shared them to excited followers on various social media platforms.

While technically not in Horizon City, the addition of yet another national fast food franchise within quick driving distance to all High Desert residents, is another indication of the growth in our area.

Wendy’s corporate office tells us the new, state-of-the-art location will be open by late-June or early-July of this year.
