A new Sonic opened in Riverton on April 25, which will serve the areas of Riverton, Herriman and beyond. 

“This is a closer Sonic for a lot of people who have been going to some ones that are farther away,” Hillary Westover, Sonic marketing manager said. “I think it is a new type of menu that they haven’t seen around here. We have over 1 million different drink combinations that you can actually make and create yourself.” 

The Riverton Sonic offers happy hour half-price drinks and slushes from 2 to 4 p.m. and half-price shakes after 8 p.m., enabling customers to taste more flavors at a discount. 

“There’s really something on our menu for everyone,” Westover said. 

Hank Loy, one of five owners, said he recommends the Orange Cream Slush, Ultimate Chicken Sandwich and boneless wings. This is Loy and the other owners’ 25th store. He said he’s pleased to announce that it has dine-in space, unlike some of their other Sonic locations that are only drive-in or drive-up friendly. 

“The high school kids will love it,” Loy said. “I think they’ll come here after games and grab some shakes.”

Loy said he welcomes those of all ages to come to the 5117 West 13400 South Riverton Sonic to experience a high-energy brand that sells delicious food.
