Wyandotte Nation to open new SONIC in Seneca Monday

Opening marks first between SONIC and Native American tribe

The Wyandotte Nation will open the doors on the new SONIC Drive-In located in Seneca, Mo., Monday, Nov. 18 at 10 a.m. Seneca is located about 10 miles from Wyandotte, Okla., where the Tribe is headquartered.

A smoking ceremony will take place at 9 a.m. and will highlight the grand opening for the SONIC Drive-In, 2314 Cherokee Ave. (on Hwy 43 and just off of Hwy 60). The opening marks the first for a Native American tribe in the SONIC system.

Oklahoma City-based SONIC Corp. is the nation's largest chain of drive-in restaurants with more than 3,500 corporate and franchise stores.

The Wyandotte Tribe of Oklahoma (WTOK), the Wyandotte Nation’s federally chartered corporation, drives economic development for the Tribe. The SONIC Drive-In is the latest in the Tribe’s continued push for economic diversification.

The WTOK business enterprises include telecommunications, IT, food service, precision manufacturing and the entertainment industry. The Tribe’s economic development supports various programs for tribal citizens, including healthcare, housing, and education programs.
