Kearney Restaurant Shares Holiday Spirit With Customers


A Kearney restaurant has found its own way to share the holiday spirit.

This week, employees at Kearney's Sonic Driveā€“in are serving up more than menu items by offering a chance to win a Thanksgiving turkey.

This Sonic is quite possibly the only one in the chain to do this, but managers say they wouldn't have it any other way.

"It's just, it's been a nice year for us because we have such loyal company customers," said manager Christy Boggs. "And we just wanted a way to pay people back just to let them know we really appreciate them."

The restaurant has received hundreds of entries since Tuesday. The drawing for six turkeys will be Saturday, Nov. 17 at 1:30 p.m. on the patio at Sonic in North Kearney.

REPORTER'S NOTES: Sonic management plans to make this an annual event, and will also offer hams for Christmas due to the overwhelming success of the turkey giveaway.
