Guestbook

Share your favorite Stuckey’s memory! Our guestbook is your opportunity to share those experiences with others.

Just about everybody has a Stuckey‘s story, recalling a time when they took road trips in the family station wagon and found “highway happiness” at one of our stores.

We would love to hear your most fond memories from yesterday or today, and we know others would love to share in your experiences as well. Please take a moment or two and post your comments in our guestbook.

In the early 70’s I pumped gas.. back when that was a thing.. at Stuckey’s on I-85 in Mebane N.C. Helped to unload the weekly truck with all of the candy, etc. Good memories!

I worked briefly at the store here in Mercer,PA, when it first opened in 71. I was hired in 76 and trained at Chambersburg, PA, with Artie Brahme. Between then and 81 I managed stores in Abilene, KS, Ravenswood,WV, and Shartlesville, PA. I also did relief work at McGraw, NY, Sedgewick, CO, Springfield, MO, and Mebane, NC. It was a really great experience! I was very surprised to actually find an open store in Mappsville, VA, while traveling in 21. Had to stop for a log roll & some other candy & a Stuckey's mug!

I was introduced to Stuckey's by some locals while in the army and stationed in Georgia from the mid-to-late '80s. I learned company history and tried some of your pecan products thanks to my friend's parents, who knew where to take me. Stuckey's is associated with some great friends and experiences. I was thrilled to be able to visit a couple of stores on my vacation while driving back to Missouri to visit a friend. Thank you, Stephanie, for your father and yourself bringing your family's piece of Americana back. I am happy to see its success.

I grew up in Michigan during the 60's and 70's, and we used to take road trips with my family a lot. My dad would always look for a Stuckey's to stop at along the way. He would always get 2 Pecan Logs, 1 to split between him & my mom, The other for me.

My parents would take me and my siblings to visit our grandparents in Florida every Christmas vacation, in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s.We traveled from Albany, New York to Melbourne, Florida and back. Dad was never keen on stopping along the way unless it was at Stuckey’s. What a great treat it was for us to get a hot meal and a little break from the road. We always got pecan log rolls on the way home to make our vacation experience last longer.

In the early 60's, mom drove us between DC to NY and DC to Chicago. There wasn't yet Interstate highways so we traveled on long and boring toll roads and turnpikes. As a 7-year-old, I'd look for the roadsigns that told us how many miles to the next Stuckey's. That was our oasis!

I worked at our local store in Bates City, MO while I was in high school. I remember cooking the King of the Road burger and making pimento cheese from scratch. Both were the BEST! Sure do miss the candies too.

My aunt and uncle had a number of Stuckey‘s franchises as I was growing up. I spent every summer in Virginia visiting with my aunt and uncle who worked tirelessly at their franchises. The latest was in Stoney Creek, Virginia, and it closed only after I 95 Supplanted Highway 301 for road trips. Stuckey has been an integral part of my life from early childhood throughout my teens. Sadly, my uncle passed away, while working at the cash register when a big bus tour group came in. My mother was standing right beside him at the time because she was also working the cash register. His funeral was the only day in their history of being with Stuckey’s that the store was closed. I was sad to see Stucky‘s close up most of their stores but I have been a flight attendant for 57 years and I really do think that there should be a Stuckey’s nook in every airport in the country. People have taken to the skies more than the roads. it would be wonderful to see a little Stuckey’s shop at the airport and I know that they would do well. The nostalgia aspect alone for our older travelers would be an enormous draw. The generation that took road trips years ago are now flying. Stuckey’s would be well remembered by all of them. They wouldn’t be able to resist a trip down memory lane during their long waits between connecting flights. I hope this message gets to Stephanie Stuckey as my aunt and uncle were friends with her grandfather.... Collapse

I learned of stuckey’s in 1979 on my very first trip. I think we stopped at every stuckey’s from Monroe La to Biloxi Ms and bought an insane amount of souvenirs, pecan logs and cheeseburger combos!! Now they are few and far between sadly

As a child in the late 1960's, our family would travel between Houston, Texas and Stillwater, Oklahoma to visit family. The iconic blue roof was always a highlight of the trip, and I can remember watching for it as miles of prairieland whisked past my window in the back seat. As I remember it, my mother would get two pecan rolls - one to share...and one to NOT share...at least it seemed that way. Stephanie, I wish you all the best as you rebuild this brand into a new and warm memory for another generation.

I worked at Stuckey’s in Kingston Springs Tennessee when I was around 16 in the mid 70’s. I pumped gas, cleaned the windshields and checked the oil for all the cars that stopped. I also got a thorough training on cleaning the bathrooms. Lol. I really hated to see it go. The owners were Billy and Eva Finch.

I get so excited just hearing or seeing the name "Stuckey's". Brings back so many memories! Whenever I've traveled thru the U.S. I've checked to see if there is a Stuckey's and have driven miles out of my way to get there. Once I saw a big Stuckey's sign while traveling on a train in Texas. I have some old memorabilia that I treasure -- a shirt, a magnet with an outdoor thermometer in it and, of course, photos of me taken at each Stuckey's. Sweet memories!
