My first job was at our local Stuckey's Pecan Shoppe. That was 30 years ago and that store is no longer in business - but it was an interesting summer

Don and Glee Jorn, my parents, managed Stuckey's in Walker, Kansas and Arkadelphia, Arkansas from 1969 to 1981 and lived in the on-site apartment in each store. We had many wonderful family get-togethers, such as my sister's rehearsal dinner, inside Stuckey's. After retirement, Mom and Dad loved to stop at every Stuckey's they passed, just to see how well it was being operated. This was ironic because, as a young couple with small children, they would not let us stop at Stuckey's no matter how much we begged. All the way from Kansas to California and back again, the three of us would sing a little song every time we saw a Stuckey's billboard ("five miles to Stuckey's, but Dad won't let us stop.") They went from never stopping, to living there for 11 years, to always stopping!
If any of Mom and Dad's employees or friends from these two Stuckey's are reading this, I encourage you to email me with your stories and memories. -- Evan Jorn firstname.lastname@example.org

When I was in college I had more fun stopping at Stuckey's on the way home from Mardis Gras then I did at Mardis Gras.

As a child, we went to Florida once a year. Each time we would stop at each and every Stuckey's along the way. I remember looking for the sign's for the next Stuckey's. We even had a contest every year of who could find the first Stuckey's sign.

As a child, I can fondly recall our family trips to Florida during school break in April. One of the best memories I have is drinking the thich chocolate malt milk shakes at Stuckey's. On our yearly summer trip to Virginia Beach, my wife and I can't help ourselves when we see the signs. Her favorites are the pecan logs and pralines. I still have to have my malt and I always leave with several cans of nuts. Keep the memories alive. Long live Stuckey's!!
