"I started as a cook when I was 17. I am managing my own store, met my wife through Sonic, and I love working together with my store team. I am proud to represent SONIC and MVP and my community every day.”
Debbie PorterDirector of Human Resources / Employee for 15 years
“College graduates want to know if there is a place for them in our organization. Yes. Yes is the answer because we will always need managers and leaders who want to take teams to high-performance levels and be part of a strong national brand while doing it.”
Sean BennettMulti-Unit Manager
"Hurricane Katrina changed everything. I started in 2002 and have been a cook, on the fountain and ice cream stations, and then assistant manager. After the hurricane, restaurants were scarce and the market shifted tremendously. I became a manager and, since 2014, I have been responsible for two stores. As of 2017, I over see 5. My goal is to be a Director one day. I was sold on the "dream" at age 16. Today I value the time I can teach and mentor others."
Murphy PeytonGeneral Manager of Monticello, MS
“I started at Sonic in the summer 2007 as a cook and was later cross trained as a carhop. Working hard, being dedicated, and being a great team leader caused me to get promoted to assistant manager in 2010. Once I became an assistant manager, I was eager to learn and exploring " The Sonic Way." I was soon promoted to operational manager. Learning to run a sonic was quite a challenge, but I was very determined to succeed. Mid 2012, I became a General Manager! I love my job, and someday I will have my drive-in at a 2 million dollar store. I would like to thank my McClain Sonics for this wonderful opportunity, I will continue to thrive and be the best General Manager I can be!”
Jessica GarciaCook at Oak Grove Sonic
I have been working with Sonic Drive In of Oak Grove since 2003. I have loved every minute of it and love my Sonic family. My son also works here at Oak Grove and has been here for 11 years. It is a blessing to be able to work with him everyday. I just love the atmosphere here at Sonic and love our customers. I appreciate all the managers I have had, past and present. We are one big happy family.
Michael JordanGeneral Manager, Richland
I came to Sonic looking for a career. Bruce Vaughn sold me on a dream that sounded too good to be true. 21 years later and I'm still living that dream. With hard work and dedication; a patient and loving wife; and a good helping of Buddy McClain's drive, trust, and loyalty; I found that career and much more. Entrepreneurial spirit, training and support, and family are just a few of the reasons I call MVP "Home"!
