Electrical Problems Caused Sonic on Furys Ferry to Close
The Sonic on Furys Ferry that closed a couple weeks ago reportedly shut down because of electrical problems and structural damage, according to a general manager at the Sonic on Washington Road in Martinez.
Ronney Gant, manager of the Washington Road Sonic, said it was a “really bad electrical problem that caused their system to crash.”
“The revenue they brought in wasn’t enough to pay for all that,” Gant said.
Gant said that the Furys Ferry Sonic used an electrical system that he estimates was around 10 years old.
The Sonic first opened 10 years ago and has gone from being a Sonic to a barbecue joint and back to a Sonic.
Gant says he’s gotten no confirmation from higher-ups about what’s in store for the building.
