Business in Indio has just experienced a SONIC boom with the opening of the drive-in restaurant chain’s newest location in the city. SONIC’S history can be traced back to 1953 and a small root beer stand called Top Hat in Shawnee, Oklahoma. In 1959, after successfully operating a handful of Top Hat locations, Troy Smith and partner Charles Pappe, christened the existing locations ‘SONIC’ – a good match for their slogan, “Service at the Speed of Sound.” SONIC is located at 42350 Jefferson Street in Indio, and is open from 4am-midnight Sunday-Thursday, and 4am-2am on Fridays and Saturdays.
SONIC is the newest of a number of popular establishments that now call Indio home. Did you know that you can also find the following stellar new businesses in Indio?
