Sonic Drive-In Restaurant for Sale

BizQuest has the best inventory of Sonic Drive-In Restaurants for sale!

SONIC Founder Troy N. Smith Sr. worked as a milkman before switching to bread delivery because it was much less heavy to carry. Tired of working for others, he opened his own cafe in Shawnee, Oklahoma. It was just a root beer stand, but it was pulling in $700 per week - decent coin at the time. Smith added a gravel lot and an intercom system, gained a partner, changed the name from Top Hat to SONIC, and hired carhops to increase business. And boy did it ever. SONIC Drive-In was born, and the first franchise became available for sale in 1959. Approximately 3 million customers visit a SONIC Drive-In restaurant daily, proving that Smith had the recipe for success.

The Fast Food Industry in the U.S. generates approximately $195 billion annually in revenue. That number is expected to reach $210 billion by 2018. Entrepreneurs looking for a SONIC Drive-In that may be for sale already know it is America’s number #1 drive-in service facility. The company recently reported a net income increase of almost 22% and brought in roughly $4 billion in U.S. sales in 2014. With over 3,500 SONIC Drive-In restaurants, 90% of which are franchise locations, the company has made its mark on the drive-through experience. Plus, SONIC plans to add 1,000 new franchises within the next ten years. Browse the BizQuest site now to find a great SONIC for sale! Hide description Read more
