Keynote Stephanie Stuckey

TMA Awards Ceremony & Keynote Luncheon Stephanie Stuckey, CEO, Stuckey’s Corporation
Sponsored by FTI Consulting 
Thursday, October 28 | 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.


No family reunion would be complete without a road trip, and no road trip would be complete without a stop at Stuckey’s, especially for restructuring folks who love a good comeback story. This is a tale of a family business with a fascinating history of twists and turns, ownership changes, and ultimately, sweet success. This year’s keynote couldn’t be a better fit for our TMA family reunion. Stephanie Stuckey is CEO of Stuckey’s, the roadside oasis famous for its Pecan Log Rolls. The company was founded by Stephanie’s grandfather, W.S. Stuckey Sr., as a pecan stand in Eastman, Georgia, in 1937 and grew into over 350 stores by the 1970s.

The company was sold in 1964 but is now back in family hands and making a comeback. Stephanie took over in November 2019 and under her leadership, Stuckey’s purchased a pecan shelling and candy manufacturing facility in Wren, Georgia; revamped its distribution operations; rebranded; added four new franchised stores; expanded its B2B retail customer base; and increased online sales 550%. Reunite, reignite, and also reminisce with Stephanie Stuckey about a storied brand so many knew so well and will soon know again as this great comeback story unfolds in real time.
