One of the many great menu items available at Sonic Drive-In is our boneless wings. These wings, available in a variety of sauces, deliver the crispy coated chicken wing and dipping sauces wing lovers crave.

We want to put more of a focus on wings at Sonic and figure out what we can do to turn Sonic into a destination for wings.


Help make Sonic a wing destination, where people will return again and again for chicken wings. We are open to your ideas for every aspect of the Sonic experience, from the actual chicken wings to the marketing and the customer experience. In your response, answer the following questions in detail:

  1. What will encourage people to repeatedly come back to Sonic to buy wings?
  2. What about the culture and experiences of places consumers love to eat wings could we bring to Sonic?

AVOID: Sonic is not a sports bar. We will never install televisions or sell alcohol. Do not make those suggestions in your solution.
