sonic has been expanding into my state(Michigan)after a heavy ad campaign. the stores I see are allways packed all the time! I thought that maybey its just a fad or everybody just trying it out but the commotion hasnt died down yet after a few months
OMG! Ya'll don't have that many Sonic's up north? Sonic's are everywhere down here in Texas. I guess that is why McDonald's stock is better than Sonic. More people are familiar with MDs. I'm sure Sonic will grow more up north now that it has expanded up there. The company started in 1959!
No we dont have that many sonics up north. Im in Michigan and everyone I know is excited about the new ones here. Especially the kids. They love the food! I mean there are lines here in Westland everyday. Someone's making money here folks if they can keep expanding. This stock is way undervalued. Trust me.
im located rite down the way in roseville. the busy sonic that i was reffering to is the mt clemons one on grosbeck. I think you picked a good chain to franchise because the McD'S N BK markets are saturated everywhere as mentioned earlier. good luck!
From what I know, Sonic has been slow to expand northward because of the climate. I worked there for 4 years and know that Sonic can bring in more customers that just about any other 'fast food' chain out there based on the drive-thru model they use. Single day sales in our location was averaging about $6000 a day with around 20-22% profit after food costs, payroll, etc. I heard they went up there - I really believe that the expansion will produce big time in the future. Seems to me that Sonic is one of the few growth fast-food restaurants out there with A LOT of room to expand - at leats much more so that ubiquitous BKs and McDs. I hope you are enjoying Sonic up there, it's an Oklahoma staple about more prevalent than McDonald's down here!
Lonestar , Im in AR We have Sonic's every where here ,Every small town has one , We even have a small town near us less than 500 people ,stays packed , They have started building some here , With the usual car hop drive in , but they also have an inside restraunt you can walk in Sit down push a button, order from your table , and they bring it to you, or eat outside on tables under a patio roof ,So you have 3 eating choices at 1 restraunt ,in your car , outside table or inside ,Probally simillar to what they will put in up north , We have some area's now with more sonic's than Mc Donalds
