Testimonials »

"The SONIC business has been very rewarding in many ways to me and my family. While there are so many things different about SONIC today, the fundamentals of the SONIC business and the vision of Troy Smith have remained constant through the years."
Gary Kinslow
Franchisee of SONIC Drive-Ins, OK & TX

"The support from other SONIC franchisees is amazingly cooperative, from ideas to sharing of financial information. And the people are what makes the Sonic Brand simply the best franchised brand out there. The support from all facets of the SONIC organization has been second to none. SONIC lends support where needed, but also allows our entrepreneurial spirit to thrive in our individuality. This is invaluable."
Tom & Beth Behrle
Franchisee of SONIC Drive-Ins, MD
