Hixson pleaded guilty on Wednesday morning to felony burglary and misdemeanor criminal mischief.
Hixson is accused of breaking the door of the restaurant and damaging surveillance cameras with two other suspects. No cash was taken.
Hixson was identified when the owner of the restaurant posted photos of the break-in on Facebook.
Hixson's lawyer told the court that the defendant has already personally paid most of what it cost to repair the damage to the business.
Before he was given his sentence, Hixson told Judge Mike Menahan that he wants to finish high school and go to college.
