International Franchise Opportunities

Interested in bringing SONIC to your country?

sonic_0081_1000pxThank you for your interest in SONIC. While our primary focus has been serving customers across the United States, we know there is interest in bringing SONIC to other parts of the world. We are not yet awarding international franchise agreements, however we are collecting names of interested parties for when we do begin global expansion.

Our domestic U.S. franchise development model is highly selective with respect to whom we grant franchises. Franchisees must not only possess the requisite business acumen, managerial skills, leadership, resources, and experience, but they must also be passionate about our concept. We will require even more of our international partners.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Currently have 30+ stores operating (multiple concepts a plus).
  • Possess experience serving the same type of customers who frequent SONIC.
  • Have successfully run other franchise concepts.
  • 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.

If you feel like you qualify based on the above description of who we’re going to be looking for when we start international expansion, fill out the form below to register your interest and we’ll be in touch with you as soon we launch.

Thank you for your interest in introducing SONIC to the world!
