In the post Covid world of restaurants, Inspire Brands has launched the new Sonic Delight prototype in Tahlequah, OK. Designed by Change Up Inc, the new site features touch-less ordering, multi-car drive thru, updated identity, colors and graphics, layout, and a new kitchen prep area among other things. It also features a homage to its signature beverage, the Cherry Limeade, with a brightly lit cherry.
Exteriors can sometimes be challenging, especially an open restaurant that is mainly a drive thru. As you can imagine, there is very limited time at dusk to photograph just the right angles with the appropriate vehicles in the drive thru-all while the site is open. I will usually do a walk through beforehand marking the appropriate angles, camera heights, prioritizing images etc in order to save time while shooting. Also, the necessary site cleanup needs to be done as well.
