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.

I grew up living about 45 minutes from Terre Haute, IN. Each time my family traveled through Terre Haute, my parents would stop at Stuckey's. We (my brother and I) would always get a pecan log roll and an invisible ink activity book after we ate lunch/dinner. The activity book would entertain us for hours in the car while traveling to our next adventure! Also, the best part of traveling anywhere was when we would stop at a Stuckey's! I'm so excited Stuckey's is revamping and making a comeback! The next time I see a Stuckey's, I'll go inside for... Read more

I am just finishing "Unstuck", the incredible ongoing story from the new matriarch of the Stuckeys brand, Stephanie Stuckey--you are an incredible, indefatigable (sp?) leader and entrepreneur and a great writer as well. Coming from a similar experience, saving a PA Dutch Country tourism spot--Colemans Ice Cream, Factory, retail store and special event trailers, we have had many of the same experiences, albeit on a smaller scale than Stuckeys. Of course, my memories include stopping at Stuckeys on the way to somewhere and begging for some small thing for back seat play--I am ordering pecan log rolls right now. Thanks... Read more

My parents became a Stuckey's franchisees in 1968 (#406), opening our store in mid-1969. My Dad had worked for the same company for 30 years and wanted to make a better life for his retirement. I was a sophomore in college when the store opened and worked part time for the first two years while the business got established. My parents worked very hard during those first years and the business grew successful. The Stuckey's corporation was amazingly supportive of a novice franchisee.

I was a sophomore in college when the store opened and worked part time for the first two years while the business got established. My parents worked very hard during those first years and the business grew successful. The Stuckey's corporation was amazingly supportive of a novice franchisee. My parents learned from the Company and were supported by our amazing District Manager who was patient and knowledgeable. They owned the business throughout their retirement. It was a classic American Dream story. I am forever grateful that they made that choice. I wish Ms. Stuckey much success. There are many "knock-offs" these days, including McDonalds. But none of them provide the experience and style of a classic Stuckey's store. It is a timeless concept and Stuckey's has done it best.... Collapse

Always loved and looked for Stuckey’s along our travels-always brings back great memories. Found an old Stuckey’s mug at a antique store-it was valuable! So happy you are working to bring back your family business! Best of wishes!

I remember in the late 60's and through the 70' stopping at a Stuckey's Restaurant with my parents and sisters to have a meal. It was there where I tried my first piece of pecan pie. I can remember it like yesterday. It was delicious.

May 2024:Former Stuckey's at Yee Haw Junction, Florida: My wife and I just stopped in at what was once the Stuckey's in Yee Haw Junction at the Florida Turnpike exit. A few Stuckey's signs left and some novelty items ( I bought a Stuckey's magnet). Doesn't appear to be an official Stuckey's anymore. However, everyone (pre 1980s) who ever made the Tampa to Miami road trip (before I-75 was extended from Tampa to Miami) stopped at the Stuckey's in Yee Haw Junction, FL.

From Tampa to Yee Haw Junction via State Road 60 to the Turnpike at the mid point to Miami...There were 2 gas stations at this road stop... the Horn's and Stuckey's. The Horn's building is demo' d and is now a RaceTrac gas station. BUT< the Stuckey's building is still there with its unique architecture. This was always our family stop before hitting the Turnpike... Dad would gas up and buy us a pecan roll. Mention the town "Yee Haw Junction" in Tampa and you will hear similar stories... and with a stop at the Stuckey's. I still remember as child walking into the Stuckey's after several hours of riding in a packed 1970 Pontiac Lemans. I could remember where the souvenirs were displayed, including the multiple alligator heads...... Collapse

As a child growing up stopping at Stuckeys was always a highlight of our vacation trip. The stores were always clean along with clean restrooms. The most exciting part was picking out our treats that we shared from Stuckeys. The items were always fresh and extremely tasty. I’m glad the Stuckeys brand is being revived and thankful for the same quality food that is now available again.

It was wonderful to hear your inspiring story at the Winchester Business in Bloom luncheon. I’ve ALWAYS loved stopping at Stuckey’s as my parents drove us from Pennsylvania to Disney World growing up - Stuckey’s and South of the Border were my faves. I was telling my recent college grad, Will, about Stuckey’s. While he loved the story he doesn’t remember Stuckey’s - make sure to market to that new generation !!!!

We remember Stuckeys from the 70s. It was our favorite stop on cross country trips because they made real milkshakes using real ice cream! We could never pass them up.

I took my daughter to a location in Texas because my grandmother's mother was Stella Agnes Stuckey-Yount (f: Joseph Stuckey m: Nellie Stuckey) and wanted to experience a part of family history as well as the past. We even got to flatten a penny in the machine like the old days. We also found license plate like memorabilia with our names.

Please bring back your Pecan Divinity! It's my favorite "guilty pleasure" and yours was the best. I gave some packages of it as Christmas gifts a few years ago and my friends still rave about it.
