MILFORD - Southwestern Connecticut's first Sonic restaurant is opening soon and the company held a job fair yesterday to meet with prospective employees.

Representatives from the restaurant say they're hoping to hire 100 employees for the location on the Post Road.

Sonic already has locations in Wallingford and Manchester, but Milford's will be the first for southwestern Connecticut.

Sonic representative Robert Mesite says Milford's location will feature indoor seating, unlike other locations that only offer an outdoor patio. The restaurant is set to open next month.
