The Grand Forks Sonic is for sale, but will remain open.
The building and land are listed for $2,583,333. The land currently is owned by Global Dakota LLC, said Abe Sakak, spokesman for the company.
"This has nothing to do with Sonic," Sakak said. "Sonic has a 20-year franchise contract in Grand Forks, it will be there for at least 20 years."
Developing land and then selling it is common practice in the fast-food restaurant world, Sakak said.
"The land and building gets bought and sold at any time; just like the stock market, we're looking for an investor," Sakak said.
The Sonic building was built in 2017. The online listing states the 2,370-square-foot property is rare because many Sonics do not have an indoor seating area.
