SONIC is an amazing company founded by a man with true entrepreneurial spirit. Troy Smith, Sr. took a root beer stand on the outskirts of Shawnee and added controlled parking, canopies, music, carhops and an innovative system for ordering food over an intercom speaker system. He formed the first of many partnerships that would define a formula for success - shared responsibility and shared profits.
Today, that formula is still at the heart of a dynamic chain of over 3600 restaurants in the United States.
The fundamental core value have been carried forward by subsequent generations of entrepreneurs, operators, crew members and partners. We call ourselves SONIC family.
