About Sonic Drive - In

Sonic Drive-In is a chain of drive-in restaurants in the United States. Headquartered in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, the company operates and franchises more than 3,500 drive-ins located in 43 states—with each unit averaging over one million dollars of sales per year. At a traditional Sonic Drive-In, customers park their car in a drive-in stall, order through an intercom speaker system, and then have their food delivered directly to them.

Products & Services

Sonic’s unique menu offers hamburgers, hotdogs, and onion rings, as well as specialty items like TOASTER sandwiches made with thick Texas toast, Footlong Quarter Pound Coneys, tater tots, and breakfast burritos. The drive-in also offers a variety of limeades, slushes, and milkshakes that customers can customize to create literally thousands of drink combinations. Sonic has also recently added freshly brewed Green Iced Tea and new flavor mix-ins to the menu.

History

Founder Troy Smith Sr. started Sonic as a hamburger and root beer stand called Top Hat Drive-In in Shawnee, Oklahoma in 1953. Business boomed when Smith established a layout for controlled parking then installed an intercom system in the lot for customers to order without ever having to leave their cars. With the slogan “Service with the Speed of Sound,” Smith opted to change the company name to Sonic. Sonic initially served primarily small towns, but soon expanded into major cities across the country.

Job Opportunities

Sonic Drive-In is now well established in 43 states and publicly traded on the NASDAQ market under the ticker symbol SONC. Corporate careers are available in Sonic’s headquarters in Oklahoma City, in addition to drive-in opportunities nationwide.
