Mansfield Sonic Closed for Renovations


The Mansfield Sonic has been closed down since Thursday, January 17, in an effort to renovate the building and it’s reputation.

“When I first came in I was not pleased,” said new Store Manager Krissy Rahmoeller. Adding, “It’s very clean now.”

After closing on Thursday, workers cleared out the building and a construction company came in to replace walls and put in new flooring. Rahmoeller noted that new equipment will also be brought in.



Currently, she plans to reopen on Friday. “I kept on some staff, those who really wanted to be here and be a part of the change,” Rahmoeller added. She said customers can expect a cleaner and friendlier store with faster service.

Rahmoeller has also managed the Booneville Sonic. Both Mansfield and Booneville are owned by the same franchise, the Joe Moore Sonic Group based in Oklahoma.

She said when she first came to Mansfield she couldn’t understand the reason behind the low sales. “I looked into it, and I understand, but I feel like we can build it back.” She communicated to upper management that in order to make a difference, “I have to prove to the community we’re cleaning house.”

    I sincerely hope it’s better. It had been a regular stop for us on the way to school and sometimes for dinner but eventually I said “why are we still giving this place a chance?” We stopped going months ago.. With new management and training we will try again!
