In March of 2000, Lance Burns and his partners formed a series of companies to develop Sonic Drive-Ins in the Atlanta and North Georgia market area. In October of 2012, Lance and his partners sold the 8 drive-ins to Mike Waller. Mike is a long time Sonic Franchisee from the Macon/Warner Robbins area. Mike is well respected franchisee that grew up working the Sonic business. He is family man and a community leader. At present (2013) the Atlanta division of the company has grown to 10 Sonic Drive-Ins in North Georgia located in Stone Mountain, Lawrenceville, Suwanee, Dacula, Commerce, Winder, Athens, Tucker, Lake City and Bogart. Mike and Lance are the longest standing franchisee in Atlanta having been in business more than 16 years. Together, they will continue to operate and grow the restaurants in an effort to become America’s most loved restaurant brand!
A key factor in our future success will be a strong involvement in the local communities where our Drive-Ins are located. This website is an example of our commitment to building relationships with our local customers, with links to many of our efforts to be a contributing and involved member of our local neighborhoods. We have a representative whose sole responsibility is to promote our Drive-Ins involvement in the local communities which reflects our commitment to our local markets.
The single most important factor in our success is a strong operations base. We provide our customers with:
· Fast, friendly service;
· Hot, fresh food made from quality products;
· A clean, safe environment;
· A fun atmosphere with roller skating and music; and most importantly,
· A consistent experience, from visit to visit, and location to location.
It is our mission to become America’s most loved restaurant brand. To do this, we must become the most loved restaurant brand in each city that we are involved in and that is what we are committed to doing.
We are proud of on-going continuous commitments to our local communities!
Hello! My name is Billy Wright and I am the Local Store Marketing Representative for 10 Sonic Drive-Ins in North Georgia. I am very proud of our efforts that have been an asset to all of our 10 local communities where our stores are located. We know the value of our all important customers who have been so generous with their loyalty to our stores and we want to give back to our community as much as possible.
I have documented over 800 Sonic events with more than 60,000 images and as of Nov 15th 2016 these images have received over 8 million views that I am very proud of. Take a look at these images to see the depth and diversity of our involvement. We also try to stay in touch with our valuable local customers and make it easy for them to give us feedback (online) so that we are always improving. Please friend us on Facebook and Like our Facebook Page , you can also follow us on Twitter. We look forward to your next visit at Sonic and you can directly contact me via email and let me know about your visit or give me suggestions on how we can even better partner with our community or serve our family of customers.
Your local SONIC Drive-In operators don't consider community involvement a sales gimmick or a public relations ploy. They see it as a way to be a good neighbor, and as a way to have a positive impact on their community. Their efforts may include awards to encourage young kids to read and incentives to keep older kids in school. They also might provide opportunities for fundraisers for school projects or other means of assistance for events in your community.
Please feel free to contact the manager of your local SONIC Drive-In to find out what programs he or she is supporting. While budget limitations make it impossible to support every worthy cause, your local SONIC is interested in learning about the work of your organization. Many local drive-ins have fundraising activities available. Please contact the manager of your local SONIC for information
