RBR Staff Writer Published 25 June 2013

SONIC Drive-In, an American chain of drive-in restaurants, is eyeing small towns throughout the Central US, as part of strategy to continue franchise development across the country.

As part of the plan the company is currently discussing opportunities with prospective owner-operators in small towns across the US.

SONIC has recentlyopened drive-ins in Shattuck and Valliant.

The company also signed 13 new franchise development agreements to open outlets in other small towns, including: Iowa Cherokee Medford, Verdigris, Murfreesboro, Boyd, Cotulla, DeQuincy, Dilley, Nixon, Shallowater, Stockdale and Three Rivers.

SONIC franchise sales and international development senior vice president Bob Franke said, "Many of these small town economies are thriving due to local energy plays, and civic leaders, residents and workers are craving new restaurant options."

The company currently has more than 3,500 drive-ins serving about 3 million customers every day.
