INDIANAPOLIS -- SONIC Drive-In is hoping to open 10 new stories in central Indiana over the next five years.

The company is looking to open locations in Carmel, Fishers, Zionsville, Westfield and other communities in the greater Indianapolis area and is hoping to recruit individuals who wish to open a franchise in these communities. 

“SONIC has experienced incredible success operating in suburbs surrounding major metropolitan areas like Indianapolis. With only two SONIC Drive-Ins in the market, we see significant untapped potential to develop more franchised restaurants especially in Boone, Hamilton and Marion counties, with their strong population growth over the last year,” said Drew Ritger, senior vice president of development for SONIC. “Coupled with Indianapolis’ thriving restaurant scene and business-friendly tax environment, now is a perfect time for SONIC to grow in the Greater Indianapolis area.”

The companies newest location is expected to open in Greenwood sometime this year.
