The SONIC Brand

SONIC is the most highly differentiated quick-service (QSR) brand, offering a fun, retro-future look that stands out and offers customers the option to drive-in, drive-thru or dine on our patio. SONIC's unique, streamlined delivery system is built around personalized and friendly carhop service that's fast, convenient and a lot more fun than the typical fast-food place. SONIC boasts fresh, quality, distinctive food and drinks, all completely customizable and made-to-order for each individual customer.

Southern California Development

Looking to pioneer a new brand in San Diego County, the company's Founding Partners identified SONIC as one that could flourish in the area. Although exclusivity is not a normal practice, the people at SONIC could not ignore the vision of the Founding Partners and granted them a multi-location franchise license with exclusivity in San Diego County. SONIC has since granted additional development territories in parts of Riverside, Orange, and San Bernardino counties due to the company's demonstrated operational excellence.
