In 1953, the prototype of the first SONIC® Drive-InÒ (NASDAQ: SONC) opened in Shawnee,
Okla. Back then, SONIC revolutionized the ordering process by using curbside speakers that
allowed customers to place food orders without ever leaving their cars. This technology spawned
the slogan “Service at the Speed of Sound™,” which translates to one word: SONIC.
SONIC Drive-In's founder Troy Smith, Sr. originally named the hamburger and root beer stand
Top Hat Drive-In, and aptly changed the name to SONIC Drive-In in 1959. Throughout its more
than 50-year history SONIC has enjoyed one of the highest customer frequency rates in the
quick-service restaurant industry.

Sonic Corp., an Oklahoma City-based, publicly held company, is the nation’s largest chain of
drive-in fast-food restaurants with more than 3,500 drive-ins located coast to coast. Specializing
in fresh, made-to-order meals, SONIC is best known for its signature menu items and personal,
friendly Carhop service. Unique menu items include TOASTER® sandwiches (sandwiches
served on thick Texas toast), Footlong Quarter Pound Coneys (hot dogs with chili and cheese),
fresh hamburgers, handmade Onion Rings, Tots and a plethora of drink and dessert choices, such
as Cherry Limeades.
