International Franchise Opportunities
Interested in bringing SONIC, America’s Drive-In® to your country?
Thank you for your interest in SONIC®. Our brand has experienced strong growth in the US and we are now looking to expand our footprint internationally. We are looking to employ two potential ownership models:
- Area Developer – franchise partner looking to aggressively develop a geographic area
- Master Franchisee – franchise partner looking to build out a geographic area through direct development and subsequently, sub-franchising our concept to qualified franchise operators
In order to better support our franchise partners, we will be focusing on the following countries during our first phase of global expansion:
- Saudi Arabia
- United Arab Emirates
Franchisees must not only possess the requisite business acumen, managerial skills, leadership, resources, and experience, but they must also be passionate about our concept. Some of our fundamental requirements include:
- Currently reside in country of interest
- Commitment to open 10+ Sonic restaurants
- Possess experience working in restaurant or retail operations
- Have successfully run other business concepts in the country of interest
- Fully understand import and export regulations for your country and the U.S
- Have a minimum of $2,000,000 working capital for this project
Meeting these minimum qualifications does not guarantee franchise approval. Products, promotions and facilities shown on this page may differ in your geographic area.
