Hot dogs buns stored in bathroom at Sonic Drive-in

TOPEKA (KSNT) – A photo has gone viral on Facebook showing hot dog buns being stored in a Topeka Sonic Drive-in restroom.

Manager of Corporate Communications Jason Acock sent a statement to News 4’s sister station KSNT News stating the franchisee has investigated the incident concerning the image shared on social media.

“An employee made an error by storing the bread racks in the restroom for 30 minutes. Upon realizing the error, the manager immediately removed the bread from the location and all bread was discarded. The Franchisee will counsel the employee and give additional training to the entire drive-in staff to ensure proper food safety steps are taken moving forward,” Acock told KSNT News.

Acock said health inspectors visited the drive-in immediately Thursday morning and found no issues with food safety.

The largest Sonic Drive-in restaurant in the U.S. is expected to open in Cheektowaga by the end of the summer. It will be the first Sonic location in western New York. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
