What you need to know

  • On June 10, Buc-ee’s will open its largest travel center to date in Luling, Texas.
  • Buc-ee’s opened its first travel center in Luling in 2003, and this new location will replace the previous one.
  • This new location will be the largest convenience store in the world, surpassing another Buc-ee’s location in Sevierville, Tennessee.

Buc-ee’s, a Texas staple known for its huge convenience stores and gas stations, will open its largest travel center yet next month right where it all began in Luling, Texas, a small town east of San Antonio along the San Marcos River. .

The new Luling store, located at 10070 Interstate 10, will be the largest Buc-ee’s location in the country, with 120 fueling stations and more than 75,000 square feet of storefront.

The store’s grand opening will take place on Monday, June 10, with doors opening at 6 a.m. and a ribbon-cutting ceremony planned for noon.

Over the past few years, Buc-ee’s has been expanding outside of Texas, and in June 2023, the chain opened the world’s largest gas station in Sevierville, Tennessee, which will be knocked down to second place behind the Luling location. Buc-ee’s also has travel centers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Missouri and Colorado, and began building locations in Virginia and Mississippi earlier this year.

With its Beaver Nuggets and “world’s cleanest bathrooms,” Buc-ee’s has been a Texas icon for decades. Luling is home to the company’s first travel center in 2003, and this new location replaces the city’s current store.

“We are thrilled to open the doors to the world’s largest Buc-ee’s travel center here in the Great State of Texas,” said Stan Beard, director of real estate and development for Buc-ee’s. “It’s particularly exciting considering it was the Buc-ee’s who started it all, so we’re looking forward to celebrating with the amazing people of Luling.”
