SONIC® has made tremendous strides as a national brand with a significant increase in national television advertising. This is designed to increase customer awareness of the SONIC brand and our delicious food and drink variety, nationwide.

SONIC’s branding efforts are immediately recognizable and memorable, working on multiple levels to drive sales and build customer loyalty.

Our campaigns showcase the on-lot experience. They can be integrated across multiple day-parts. Our ad campaign focuses on our food and drink and fits well with social media initiatives. Our Two Guys ads are fun and use light-hearted comedy that appeals to a wide audience.

Additional support:

  • National Purchasing Program

  • Staff Selection Training

We are proud to have pioneered the Brand in the San Diego DMA. Sonic's support of our store operations and development activity has been outstanding. Additionally, our same store sales growth has been impressive as we enjoy the results of SONIC's increased national media exposure.
