Ted Kergan Receives Sonic's Most Prestigious Award

Lafayette, Louisiana-based Sonic operator Ted Kergan is the winner of the brand's annual Troy Smith Hall of Fame Award for 2015. He was recognized at Sonic's recent convention in Kansas City, Missouri. The award is given to a franchisee who has worked with Sonic for a noteworthy duration and has made a significant contribution in terms of leadership, growth, positive influence, and brand image.

"To be recognized for this prestigious award is very humbling and emotional for me because I am now placed in the same category with fellow franchisees who have taught me a lot about the business," said Ted Kergan, chief executive officer of Kergan Brothers, Inc. "Troy Smith was among my Sonic mentors and I am delighted to receive the award named for a man I both respected and admired." Kergen's company owns and operates 54 Sonic Drive-Ins in the Alexandria, Baton Rouge, Acadiana, and New Orleans markets in Louisiana.

Kergan gives back to the Sonic brand by serving in numerous capacities including membership on the executive committee of Sonic's franchisee advisory council. Kergan and his team give back to the communities by working with more than 250 schools across the state of Louisiana and volunteering with non-profit organizations including the Boys & Girls Club and American Cancer Society.

"Ted is well-respected among his franchisee peers in Sonic and he is a source of great leadership and inspiration to his fellow franchisees, colleagues and partners," said Clifford Hudson, CEO of Sonic Corp. "Ted's character and integrity define him, and his generous spirit, development of others and successfully confronting adversity captures the spirit of a Troy Smith Hall of Fame Award recipient. He has helped develop the brand over the years and helped make it what it is today."
