I was born and raised in Chicagoland and every year when I was a child in the early 70's my parents, siblings and myself drove down to Florida for spring break to visit my grandparents, and other retired great aunts and uncles. We always stopped at Stuckey's throughout Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia etc...My parents purchased gasoline, and then the real treat was to dine in,(real quality sit down family dine in time!) The other treat was while waiting for our food, my brothers and I picked out souveniers in the gift shop that our parents bought for us. THE BEST TREAT OF ALL, we bought many Pecan Log Rolls for "the road" and to give as souveniers for our elderly relatives, they really enjoyed this because they were too old to travel, thus it was something that everyone looked forward to...
My husband, teeange daughters and I would love to own a Franchise. Any possibility?

Some of my fondest memories of my childhood were the many travels from California to Kentucky & back on vacation, we would stop at Stuckey's! We had an old military bus converted into a motorhome! We would pull up to Stuckey's and everyone would come to see the "bus-camper" & my whole family would come out & raid the store!!!! As a small kid this was the best of times, "Americana" at it's finest!!! Mark Johnson

I used to work for Stuckey's in Kansas along the I-70 Hwy and I was there for two years off and on. I enjoyed everyminute that I worked there from the time that I started, until the time that the store had closed. Unfortunately, the store was in bad shape and I was hoping that It would reopen again because I wouldn't mind going back there to be an employee or even an assistant manager. I have had a great experiance working at Stuckey's and hope that it comes back this way before to long.

Unfortunately, I have never had the pleasure of visiting a Stuckey's, BUT, when I was a child I had a Stuckey's board game.
I LOVED that game so much. Especially the part about watch for falling rocks. What happened to the game, I do not know. I can't even find a copy of it online!
But thanks for the great memories of playing the Stuckey's board game (& pickup sticks) with my childhood friends.

Oh how I remember Stuckey's up and down the interstates across Texas. There is still one of the very few remaining buildings on I-35 around the Waco area. I remember eating at Stuckey's, gassing up and finding all kinds of stuff in the gift shop that I wanted that of course I didn't get. GREAT TO SEE THE COME BACK!! I WOULD LOVE TO SEE STANDALONE STUCKEY'S AGAIN STANDING TALL AND SHOULDERS ABOVE THE COMPETITION ALONG OUR NATION'S HIGHWAYS!!!
