WATCH: Buc-ee’s First Location Outside of Texas Opens in Alabama
The sprawling roadside oasis boasts “the biggest, most pristine bathrooms the state of Alabama has ever seen.”
It’s official, y’all! Buc-ee’s, the beloved Texas convenience store famous for its immaculate public bathrooms and delicious snacks, has debuted its first location outside the Lone Star state.
The chain’s new Alabama store opened its doors to plenty of fanfare early Monday morning in Baldwin County. Buc-ee’s first non-Texas location boasts over 50,000 square feet, 124 fueling positions, and “the biggest, most pristine bathrooms the state of Alabama has ever seen,” according to a press release.
At more than 21 times the size of the average convenience store, AL.com reports that the Robertsdale Buc-ee’s is believed to be the largest travel station in the state.
Customer’s familiar with the store’s omnipresent smiling beaver will be happy to learn that the new location will stock all of the things Buc-ee's is known for: barbeque sandwiches, beef jerky, homemade fudge, and its cult-favorite Beaver Nuggets.
Founded in 1982, Buc-ee's now has 35 convenience stores and travel centers in Texas and Alabama. The company also operates the largest convenience store in the world, a gargantuan, 68,000-square-foot roadside mecca in New Braunfels, Texas.
Buc-ee’s quest to take over the South has just begun. The chain is reportedly opening a second location outside of Texas this summer in Daytona Beach, Florida.
