Could The Basin Be Getting A Buc-ee’s? Buc-ee’s Announces Future Expansion
I am here to tell you there can never be too many Buc'ee's in this world. There should be a Buc-ee's in every city. I still don't understand why we don't have one here. We are right in the middle of Dallas and El Paso. The Permian Basin would be prime real estate for a Buc-ee's.
I am someone who if there is a Buc-ee's within a relatively close distance I am going to go. Whenever I go visit my family in the Houston area, they know we have to make at least one stop at Buc-ee's before I leave. We usually make a stop right after they pick me up and right before I head back to the airport.
Buc-ee's and its famous beaver have become a staple for Texas and other states as well. A company that started in Lake Jackson, Texas, now has 40 locations all over Texas, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.
I could sit here and say Buc-ee's is for one thing but there are so many, beaver nuggets, the cleanest restrooms, candy, beef jerky, bbq sandwiches, breakfast and so much more. How often is that when a gas station is mentioned, someone says, make sure to check out the bathrooms.
Buc-ee's is expanding and has announced their plans for 12 more locations, not only here in Texas but in Kentucky, Tennessee, South Carolina, Colorado, and Mississippi. But I do have to sadly say one of the new locations won't be here in the Permian Basin. Here are the places that Buc-ee's plans to expand through 2026 and as of right now we are not on the list.
- Richmond, Ky., second-quarter 2022
- Florence, S.C., second-quarter 2022
- Crossville, Tenn., 2022
- Athens, Ala., 2023
- Auburn, Ala., 2023
- Sevierville, Tenn., 2023
- Smiths Grove, Ky., 2023
- Johnstown, Colo., 2024
- Hillsboro, Texas, 2025
- Harrison County, Miss., 2025
- Boerne, Texas, 2025
- Anderson, S.C., 2026
We all need to keep sending emails and calls begging the Buc-ee's company to give us our very own.
