Sonic Drive-In

SONIC Drive-In is an American quick-serve restaurant franchise chain that serves carnival-like menu items such as hamburgers, French fries, onion rings, corn dogs and chili dogs, along with a highly customizable selection of both classic and contemporary beverage options. SONIC competes within its market by offering a unique fast food experience that includes parking in a covered drive-in stall and ordering from a speaker, then being served by a carhop on roller skates. Drive-thru lanes are also an option at most locations.

Sonic Drive-In Franchise ResalesSonic first opened in 1953 as Top Hat Drive-In in Shawnee, Oklahoma, with Troy Smith Sr. at the helm. He later partnered with Charlie Pappe and they began franchising in 1959 under the Sonic Drive-In name. Sonic's car-hops deliver burger, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, tater tots, onion rings, fries, drinks, desserts and breakfast to customers.
