After months of competing against more than 2,500 fellow SONIC Drive-ins across the country, the McKinney SONIC Drive-In located at 420 N. Custer Road is one of 48 remaining teams in the Dr Pepper SONIC Games.

The SONIC crewmember competition culminates with a National Finals in San Antonio this September.

The McKinney drive-in is just one round away from becoming one of 12 finalists and earning an all-expense-paid trip to San Antonio for the Finals competition.

Each Top 48 crew competes in a Traveling Knowledge Bowl, a game show-like quiz competition based on the daily operations at a drive-in.

During each Traveling Knowledge Bowl, six crewmembers answer a series of questions relating to the operational procedures specific to their position at the drive-in. Teams receive points for each correct answer, which could ultimately advance them to San Antonio.

The Top 48 make up less than two percent of SONIC Drive-Ins across the nation. The Dr Pepper SONIC Games increase knowledge and enthusiasm for SONIC employees in their work environment while serving as a reward for all of their hard work.

The National Champion drive-in will be announced in front of more than 3,000 SONIC franchisees, managers and employees at SONIC’s annual National Convention in San Antonio in the days following the competition.
