My grandfather, Sylvester Stuckey, built Stuckey’s in 1937 with a $35 loan and a borrowed car. It began as a roadside pecan stand in Eastman, Georgia; by the 1960s, there were hundreds of Stuckey’s stores in 30 states.
In many ways, it’s a different world than when Governor Brian Kemp took office in January 2019. Since his inauguration, a global health crisis precipitated changes in supply chains, employment, and other elements of the economic landscape. Still, Georgia is thriving amid the challenges, due in part to Kemp’s commitment to facilitating a pro-business environment in both the state’s largest cities and less populated areas.
