SONIC® Searches For Top Drive-In Crew: Final 12 To Compete In San Diego At 20th Annual DR PEPPER SONIC Games

Stocks in this article: SONC

After nine months of intense competition, 12 talented SONIC Drive-In crews are advancing to the Final 12 round of the 20th annual DR PEPPER SONIC Games, taking a VIP trip to San Diego for the last challenge at the 2013 SONIC National Convention. Each crew will compete in final events on Sunday, September 15 and Monday, September 16, and the top three crews will be recognized at an awards ceremony at the end of the week.

“Now in its twentieth year, the DR PEPPER SONIC Games continue to encourage our most passionate and enthusiastic crews to push themselves all year long for the chance to win an all-expense-paid trip to our National Convention for the finals,” said Omar Janjua, chief restaurant operations officer for SONIC Drive-In. “After two days of final events, the crews get to simply enjoy themselves in San Diego and get to know each other. It’s great for team-building and lets us show them how much we truly appreciate their dedication to the SONIC brand.”

Crews participating in the DR PEPPER SONIC Games take on challenging team and individual competitions and quizzes throughout the year in their local markets. The competition spans nine months and tests crewmembers’ expertise in the areas of Carhop (food delivery), Fountain (drink preparation), Switchboard (order taking), Dresser, Grill and Swamp (food preparation).

The Final 12 crews, in alphabetical order, are:

  1. Baton Rouge, La.
  2. Boise, Idaho
  3. Evans, Ga.
  4. Excelsior Springs, Mo.
  5. Hopkinsville, Ky.
  6. Leavenworth, Kan.
  7. Lindale, Texas
  8. Mineola, Texas
  9. Olathe, Kan.
  10. Pineville, La.
  11. Topeka, Kan. (2053 Southwest Western)
  12. Topeka, Kan. (5922 Southwest 21st Street)

While the top three prizes will be awarded based on skills displayed at the finals, a Fans’ Favorite Award is also up for grabs. SONIC fans are encouraged to vote for their favorite Final 12 crew on the DR PEPPER® SONIC Games 2013 tab of the SONIC Drive-In Facebook page. Voting closes on September 9.

At the 2013 SONIC National Convention, between the final events and the awards ceremony at the end of the week, the top twelve crews get a well-deserved vacation, including special events, entertainment and a meal hosted in their honor by Clifford Hudson, chairman, chief executive officer and president of Sonic Corp.
