Any roadside trip through Texas would not be the same without a stop at a Stuckey's. Stuckey's began with a roadside pecan stand in Georgia in 1937 then grew to over 350 locations. Many roadside travelers will remember the familiar blue roofs as they hit the road for the past 70 years. In the late 70's Stuckey's was owned by a corporation and the familiar stands started to become ghosts. The number dropped to 75. Now with W.S. Stuckey Jr. at the helm, Stuckey's has grown back to around 200 locations and hopefully will be around for our kids and grand kids. More info can be found at the Stuckey's website. 02-07
