Having grown up in Eastman, GA in the 1960s and 70s, being the home of the Stuckey's brand was our one claim to fame. My family had the pleasure of knowing the Stuckeys. One of my favorite memories is going down to the factory office every Christmas and buying big plastic bags of candy "seconds". The bigger pieces might be misshapen or a little heavy for the box, but they were so good. Mr. Sylvester's funeral was perhaps the biggest one that little town had ever seen. He loved the people of Eastman and they loved him back. Sadly Eastman has nothing that comes even close to being as nice as the old Carriage Inn nowadays. I remember the big blue and white water tank on the south end of town that proclaimed "Welcome to the Home of Stuckey's - King of the Road. It always will be in my mind.

In 1958 my daddy began managing Stuckey's in Crescent Beach, South Carolina. We lived behind the store(attached) in the manager's residence. I rode the bus along the Atlantic Ocean each day to Ocean Drive Elementary School. I have fond memories of that time and of Stuckey's. I have often wondered if that building on highway 17 is still there. We were from Waycross, Georgia and returned there later that year. I would love to have a post card of that Stuckey's.
