It is no longer a secret what fast food restaurant is moving into the new Standard Center next to the AM/PM Mini-Mart.
McDonalds has placed signs out front announcing that they will “Open Soon.” A second sign states that they are currently searching for restaurant manager. Tuolumne County already has a McDonalds in the Junction Shopping Center. It is not immediately known what the future holds for the Junction location, following the announcement about Standard. Representatives from the Junction Shopping Center could not be reached for comment this morning.
In Spring of 2009, the City of Sonora also approved plans to construct a new McDonalds drive-thru restaurant at the intersection of Highway 108 and Sanguinetti Loop. However, to this point the project has not gotten off the ground.
A new McDonalds restaurant also opened in Angels Camp back in October of 2010.
