Featured Business of the Month: Sonic Drive-In
The Auburndale City Commission recognized Sonic Drive-In i as the March 2017 “Business of the Month”. Sonic has been in business in Auburndale since 2003 and continues to grow. Franchise owner, Buddy McClain, who owns 97 stores in the Southeast United States, also owns the Sonic in Winter Haven and is building a new store in Lakeland. Sonic employs 25 people, and is proud to employ many of the residents and former residents of the nearby Auburndale Bridge, a rehabilitative facility for women.
The City of Auburndale would like to recognize and thank Sonic for their efforts in keeping the drive-in restaurant looking in top shape, especially with their location being at the gateway to downtown Auburndale.
