Buc-ee's is a Texas-based chain of large interstate travel centers, combining scores of gas pumps with a big-box sized retail store. The stores are known for their extensive snack options and spacious, well-maintained restrooms.
The first Buc-ee's, with 8 gas pumps, was opened in Lake Jackson, Texas in 1982 by Don Wasek and Arch Aplin. They opened their first large-scale travel center, with 48 gas pumps, in Luling, Texas in 2001. The chain first expanded outside of Texas in early 2019 with a new 120-pump travel center in Loxley, Baldwin County. Three other Florida locations were also announced.
