For more than 40 years, Sonic has worked to build its dominant position in the drive-in restaurant business and create a franchise system that offers extraordinary entrepreneurial opportunities in the quick-service restaurant industry. Sonic Drive-Ins offer made-to-order sandwiches and feature signature items such as Extra-Long Cheese Coneys, hand-battered onion rings, tater tots, and a variety of Frozen and Fountain Favorites, including cherry limeades, slushes, and a complete soft-serve dessert menu. At a typical Sonic Drive-In, the customer drives into one of 24 to 36 covered parking spaces and orders made-to-order food through an intercom speaker system. The customer's order is delivered by a carhop usually within four minutes. For a number of years, Sonic has consistently maintained strong real sales growth and industry-leading customer frequency.
New Slush Flavors
Oklahoma City-based Sonic debuted this week 28 different slush options made with real fruit and nostalgic candies, such as Nerds and Jolly Ranchers. For a limited time, Sonic is offering the slushes at half price during its happy hour promotion, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sonic is also touting add ons such as ice cream, so customers can customize their slush orders.
