Chris Aadahl

Sonic #4927
Baton Rouge, LA

My name is Chris Aadahl and I am the Operator of Sonic Drive In #4927 on Jackson St. in Alexandria.  I was born in California, raised by New York Yankees, and settled in Louisiana to where I call this place "home". I am the proud mother of a son, 2 daughters, and many "foster" children. It has always been a personal passion of mine to help others and to inspire change in people's lives.

I have been in restaurant management since 1999 with over 16 years of Sonic Drive-In management experience. My team and I want to inspire change and help develop our Jackson St. store into something better than it has ever been. We realize that it starts with "us" making every customer count, every order great, and every opportunity to become better.  We love our store, our community, and the opportunity to inspire change with both.

Sonic #6605
Baton Rouge, LA

My name is Jessica Moore and I am the manger of the Sonic Drive-In of Gonzales on Airline Highway. I am from a tiny town not too far away from my drive in called Maurepas. The drive in I manage today was actually my very first job. I started in 2000 as a carhop. I have held many different titles with Sonic including managing the Dutchtown location for eight years, which I am now an owning partner in. I even supervised several locations before I made my way to my home store. When I am not at my drive in I enjoy different forms of art, especially painting, and spending time with friends and family. I have a wonderful husband and 13-year-old son. 


My name is Tywanda Jacobs. I'm originally from the New Orleans area. I started with the company in 2014 at the Zachary location. I recently returned to the company. At my store I love the great customers we have. They can be very understanding and nice. The staff is great to work with as well. My goal for this location is to grow sales, interact with the community, and make our location one to talk about in a positive way. If I could choose one menu item to eat all the time it would be the Super Sonic burrito. Outside of Sonic I love spending time with my kids, reading, and watching movies. I also love studying history and criminal justice. I am glad to be with the company and plan on making a positive impact on the brand. 


I started at Sonic Drive-In as a Carhop back in 2005. It was the Summer before my senior year of high school. I have 5 kids and in my spare time I enjoy camping, attending sporting events, and concerts. I also love traveling and spending time with my kids.
