Description
 
The Horatio Alger story of the life of the founder of Stuckey’s chain of stores. Stuckey was born in 1909 near Eastman, GA. 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. This biography tells how Stuckey lifted himself by his bootstraps to see his name become a legendary household world. Photos.
