Sonic Drive-In (Oklahoma City) will soon open its first outlet in Hawaii. Slated to debut Feb. 20, the store is in Kahului, Maui, and operated by franchisee North Shore Provisions LLC.

The new location showcases a custom-designed building by architectural firm RAD LAB (San Diego), along with a solar power system providing much of the drive-in’s power needs. Guests at the restaurant can also experience custom murals created by Hawaii artist Kristie Fujiyama Kosmides.

“A visit to Sonic is a unique and special experience and we brought that same level of uniqueness to the Maui drive-in, ensuring this location represents the culture and the beauty of our island,” says Edwin Prather, Managing Member of Sonic Drive-In Hawaii. “From the building’s architecture, independent local ownership and the staff that serve our guests – each element proudly reflects the local community.”

The Kahului locale will offer drive-thru service, patio seating, as well as ordering through the classic Sonic drive-in stalls served by car hops.

The company said the Maui location is the first of several the brand plans for the state in coming years, but did not offer further details.

Founded in 1953, Sonic is the largest drive-in restaurant brand in the United States with more than 3500 restaurants in 47 states.
