SONIC® Drive-In (NASDAQ: SONC) today announced the launch of Cheesy Bread
Dogs, a tasty twist on the traditional hot dog with cheese baked right onto
the warm, soft hot dog bun. SONIC’s Ultimate Cheese and Bacon Cheesy Bread Dog
and the Garlic Parmesan Cheesy Bread Dog are a cheese lover’s dream, adding to
the already impressive lineup of hot dog options at America’s Favorite
Drive-In.

The two new adventurous offerings are sure to satisfy any summer hot dog
cravings. The Ultimate Cheese and Bacon Cheesy Bread Dog takes a warm, soft
hot dog bun with cheddar cheese baked right on it and tops the 100 percent
pure beef dog with melty cheddar cheese sauce and crispy bacon. The Garlic
Parmesan Cheesy Bread Dog takes the same delicious pure beef dog and warm
cheddar bun and adds zesty Garlic Parmesan Sauce and grilled onions for those
who like a little zing with their dogs.

“It’s become tradition at SONIC to put a non-traditional spin on a
fan-favorite item, and the Cheesy Bread Dogs are no exception,” said James
O’Reilly, chief brand officer at Sonic Corp. “Our premium hot dogs are a
staple for many of our guests, and we always strive to come up with creative
additions or unique enhancements that will keep our menu exciting. The Cheesy
Bread Dog will appeal to anyone who pulls up to the drive-in, whether they’re
looking for something new or just craving an iconic summer meal.”

Hot dog fans across the country know and love the dogs at the drive-in, and no
other national fast food restaurant provides as many hot dog options to please
a summer palate*. SONIC created the Cheesy Bread Dog to give food adventurers
a way to experiment with familiar favorite menu items, whether they seek the
hot dog they knew from their childhood or are trying to beef up their hot dog
game with new and creative flavor combinations.

Both of the Cheesy Bread Dog options pair well with an icy Slush or creamy
Shake to make a crave-worthy drive-in meal perfect for a hot day or fun night.
Along with the entire SONIC menu, Cheesy Bread Dogs are available all day, but
only for a limited time.

national presence
