(PRWEB) June 27, 2014

Jim Fitzpatrick, President of CBT News interviewed Sonics Jeff Dyke about the Fortune 500 companys One Sonic-One Experience initiative. Dyke, Executive Vice President of Operations discussed the rollout of its new sales process in addition to its plan to open stand-alone pre-owned vehicle stores, Sonics plans for expansion and consolidated branding.

The first store scheduled to implement the One Sonic-One Experience on August 1 is Town and Country Toyota in Charlotte, N.C., where the company is headquartered. Plans are for the entire Charlotte market to switch over by the end of the year. The new process was designed to put the customer in charge and in their new car in less than 45 minutes.
One element of the process is one-price selling, but its important for everyone to understand its not just about one-price selling, said Dyke. Its about offering the guest an experience they dont get today in our industry, and you cant do that if youre going to haggle back and forth. If you have to go back and forth three or four times, you lose credibility with the guest and everybody else. So were going to stop all that.

Dyke also shared information about the state-of-the-art technologies that were designed by Sonic, and the major change in company culture that was seven years in the making.
To see the first of the three-part interview, tune in to on June 27.
