Posted: Updated:

A new food option will be among the numerous businesses that are set to start popping up here next to the La Quinta hotel in southwest Minot. Sonic will be one of the first. The fast food restaurant with a bit of a different feel will be the first in North Dakota for RZA Ventures -- a Minot company. Construction should start very soon and take about 80 days, weather permitting. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner served all day...striving for a bit different experience when dining out...

(Reza Sakaki - RZA Ventures) "The most unique thing about Sonic is our drive-in concept where you park and when ready you press the red button and we will take your order and a skating carhop will deliver it to you. You can eat in your car or take it to go."

Of course that doesn't always work in North Dakota...so changes have been made to make this Sonic a year-round option.

(Reza Sakaki - RZA Ventures) "Sonic traditionally doesn't have inside seating, it is just drive in and drive thru but we are adding it and will have room for about 50 to 60 people to come inside."

Plans call for about 80 employees with an opening for March or April of next year.

MicroTel in Minot is officially open for business. Today is the first day of operation for the property managed by

SKY Hospitality LLC -- a Florida based company. A grand opening is set for Friday.

Finally, a Minot native has moved his chiropractic practice to a new location in the Magic City. Dr. Matthew Sampson has relocated Horizon Family Chiropractic to 37th Ave. SW just south of the YMCA. Sampson says he takes chiropractic care to another level...dealing not just with the bones that may need adjustments, but underlying issues that could be causing problems...

(Dr. Matthew Sampson "The different techniques that I utilize are called chiropractic neurology which combines traditional chiropractic techniques with a new technique utilizing brain rehabilitating to the rest of the body, particularly the muscles and joints throughout the entire body."

Sampson has been in the new location for about three weeks now.
