Sonic Burger Drive-In has broken ground and grading has begun on other businesses set to open in the Centerpointe shopping center at Highland Springs Avenue and Second Street.

Beaumont’s Economic Development Director Kyle Warsinski said that along with Sonic, Centerpointe will feature Panera Bread, Ono Hawaiian BBQ, Pieology and a dental office.

There also will be Les Schwab Tires and Fast Five Car Wash. Warsinski said he anticipates the project to be completed by the end of 2018.
