New SONIC Drive-In Opens In Pacific Beach

November 7, 2016

A new SONIC Drive-In location has opened at 2736 Garnet Avenue near Mission Bay Drive in Pacific Beach. Famous for its 1950s-style drive-in stalls, roller skating carhops and its menu of burgers, chili cheese dogs, grilled cheese sandwiches and milk shakes, the PB location marks the eighth Sonic franchise in San Diego County.

SONIC, America's Drive-In, is an Oklahoma City based fast food franchise that came into being in 1959 and is the nation's largest drive-in restaurant chain - serving more than 3 million customers every day. Nearly 90 percent of Sonic's 3,500 drive-in locations are owned and operated by local business men and women. Like the other San Diego Sonic locations, the PB Sonic will be operated by Pacific Drive-Ins, led by Max Gelwix and Kasey Suryan, who has a multi-location franchise license with exclusivity in San Diego County and nearly 20 locations in California.

The Pacific Beach Sonic location will be open daily from 7am-2am. For more information, visit
