As part of the Docomomo US annual theme of Travel & Leisure, join Docomomo US/Georgia and the Society for Commercial Archaeology (SCA) on the virtual roadside as they visit Stuckey’s, the roadside oasis famous for its pecan log rolls. The company was founded by W.S. Stuckey, Sr. as a pecan stand in Eastman, Georgia in 1937 and grew into over 350 stores by the 1970’s. The company was sold in 1964 but is now back in family hands and making a comeback.
Stephanie Stuckey, 3rd generation CEO of Stuckey’s, will share her journey to bring back the iconic roadside retail chain founded by her grandfather, including never-before-published images of early stores and discussion of the evolution of the stores’ design and architecture.
