He borrowed $35 from his grandmother & built a roadside shack to sell pecans &, later, candy. Thus was the inauspicious beginning of a multi-million dollar chain of 350 stores. When convenience & fast-food stores were still decades away, Stuckey was incorp. the one-stop shopping concept in his stores. When integration in the South was still years away, black tourists planned their travels so they could use restrooms at Stuckey stores. He also pioneered the use of franchises to manage his stores.
