Community Involvement


At SONIC, our Core Values are integrated into every aspect of our business, including the ways in which we engage in business relationships, develop community relationships and partner with our colleagues to be active members of the communities where we operate.

Core Values

  • Respect for everyone touched by the SONIC® brand.
  • Entrepreneurial spirit and the power of the individual.
  • Importance of relationships as a way of life.
  • Doing different, special and better things to surprise and delight everyone touched by the SONIC brand.

These core values guide our interaction with our stakeholders, including customers, employees, community partners and supply partners.

Community Giving

SONIC is more than a great place to grab an Footlong Quarter Pound Coney and a Cherry Limeade. From first jobs to first dates, SONIC has provided the setting for many milestones in our customers’ lives. Thanks to our loyal customers and employees, we’re an integral part of the cities and towns in which we operate.

National Programs

For more than 15 years, Sonic’s community giving programs have been geared toward advancing education and academic opportunity for Oklahoma youth ages 4-22. To further extend its commitment to education, Sonic is embarking on its largest corporate philanthropic effort to date—Limeades for Learning.

Limeades for Learning is a national cause branding program in partnership with DonorsChoose.org that benefits teachers and students in local communities. Throughout the year, Sonic will partner with DonorsChoose.org to inspire learning in classrooms across the country.
