Originally opened as the Top Hat Drive-In in 1953, Sonic has grown into a burger-franchise mecca that today operates out of 3,500 locations across the country, making it the nation’s largest chain of drive-in restaurants. Sonic specializes in made-to-order American classics—including burgers, hot dogs, milk shakes, and marshmallow Ford Thunderbolts—which customers order and receive without ever having to leave their cars. Unique menu items include toaster sandwiches stacked on thick slices of texas toast, as well as the brand’s signature tots and fresh limeades.
Sonic’s numerous awards include a 2011 Zagat survey ranking it among the top five fast-food restaurants in three categories: Best Value Menu, Best Milk Shake, and Best Drive-Thru. The benevolent eatery has also donated more than $2 million to public schools throughout the country through their program Limeades for Learning, which helps to fund educational projects and retirement plans for classroom guinea pigs.
In 1993, Casey Miller got his first job at The Meating Place, a local meat market that first opened in 1974. Then a freshman in high school, Casey started sweeping up the Hillsboro butcher's shop part-time, but by graduation, he had worked his way into an assistant-manager position. The shop closed its doors in 1998, but Casey and original owner Steve Crossley teamed up to reopen the custom meat-cutting business and showcase meat exclusively sourced from area farms.
Following family recipes, the butchery smokes all sorts of proteins, including beer sausage, salmon, and jerky, and carves sustainably raised beef and pork into custom cuts or busts of George Washington. Hunters and fishermen also turn over their own wild game for The Meating Place pros to process. Butchers grind locally sourced alpaca meat, fresh or smoked bones, and seasonal vegetables into raw dog food that makes pets' coats shine and teeth glisten while also encouraging healthy digestion.
