Lubbock Sonic locations try something new; Sonic On The Go

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock area Sonic Drive In restaurants are trying something new, which they call "Sonic On The Go."  Anyone with Internet access, including Internet-ready smart phones can order ahead to Lubbock Sonic Drive In locations. 

The service was announced Friday by the company which is setting up the service, OLO.  OLO says very soon any restaurant that does not have an app for customers to place orders will be like a restaurant that has no phone number.  

"We're honored to work with Sonic Drive-In to let customers order from anywhere," said OLO Chief Executive Officer Noah Glass in a written statement. "Where else can you get a mobile order delivered to you by a server on roller skates?"

Sonic On The Go is being tested at 71 Sonic locations in five different cities: Augusta, Georgia; Chicago; Lubbock; Phoenix; and Rockford, Illinois.  Some locations of Cold Stone Creamery and Subway are using the same technology but not in Lubbock stores.
