In addition to their super-sized locations, Buc-ee’s is known for clean restrooms, winning a “Best Restroom in America” award from Cintas in 2012. Eating in the stores is similar to an amusement park with a homemade fudge bar, gigantic beef jerky display, and a whole wall dedicated to Icees. The Daytona Beach store will carry all of the chain’s “favorites” including Texas barbecue, kolaches (a Texas-style soft pastry), Beaver nuggets (sweet, buttery corn puffs), and fresh pastries. Joining the Texas standards will be beach-fueled gear to enhance any Florida adventure.
Buc-ee’s purchased the site, on the north side of LPGA Boulevard across from the Tomoka Town Center and new Sam’s Club, for almost $14 million. The 35-acre property is set to open in early 2021 with additional space for other stores and restaurants. It will employ nearly 200 people with several full-time employees.
Buc-ee’s Additional locations are planned for St. Augustine, Ocala, Fort Myers, and the World Golf Village.
