Ahhhh memories. We stopped at one and ordered sandwiches for lunch. We each got a plate with a regular sandwich cut into 4 quarters. Problem was, there were only 3 quarters of the sandwich and the fourth spot had a few potato chips. We always joked that the cook must have been hungry and ate part of our sandwich after making it. Guess we should have only paid 3/4 of the price. Never went to another one after that experience.

There was one just outside my home town and we made frequent trips there. But it closed many years ago. Parking lot is still there but building is long gone.

Bill Stuckey was the founder from here in Georgia and a politician as well. He made a lot of money on the then money crop of southern Georgia - pecans.
He got into politics and was in the state congress for several years.

The Stuckey stores were scattered up and down US 441 before I-75 became the route to Florida. As a kid we loved stopping for gas and hoping to get a piece of candy from the abundant choices.

Business went down and the family began selling and leasing the stores. The quality of the tourist attractions went down as the traffic on 441 decreased.

I believe there may be a new store below Fort Valley on I-75 but I don't know if it is a franchise or family owned. Either way, it is a little nostalgic to see something from 60 plus years ago.

dedmiston,

Thanks for that. I actually remember some of those offerings but I also remember ordering off the big person's menu. The other fun thing was when my Dad and Mom decided to get off the road early on some days so we could go swimming.
