ST. AUGUSTINE, Florida, February 11, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Buc-ee's, home of the world's cleanest bathrooms, freshest food and friendliest beaver, will unveil its newest travel center in St. Augustine, Florida, on Feb. 22, 2021. Doors will open at 6 a.m. EST, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony will follow at 11 a.m. EST. The celebration will be attended by local leaders and community members.
Located at 200 World Commerce Parkway, Buc-ee's St. Augustine is the first Buc-ee's travel center to open in Florida. Construction is currently underway for a second Florida location in Daytona Beach, which is expected to open next month. The two Florida outposts continue Buc-ee's multi-state expansion across the South, joining stores in Georgia and Alabama. Buc-ee's first travel center in South Carolina is also currently under construction and is slated for opening in 2022. Buc-ee's continues to operate 38 locations in Texas, where it was founded.
Buc-ee's St. Augustine will occupy 52,600 square feet, and offer 104 fueling positions just outside its store with thousands of snack, meal and drink options for travelers on the go. The new travel center will also feature the same award-winning restrooms, cheap gas, quality products and excellent service that have won the hearts, trust and business of millions in the South for nearly 40 years. Buc-ee's favorites including Texas barbeque, homemade fudge, kolaches, Beaver nuggets, jerky and fresh pastries will all be available as well.
"Picking St. Augustine for our first Florida location made sense for many reasons, but its proximity to our other locations across the South was our initial motivator. Location aside, our owners fell in love with the rich history and warm hospitality of St. Augustine," said Stan Beard of Buc-ee's. "With their crystal-clear beaches and walkable atmosphere, St. Augustine is among the most beautiful cities in Florida. We are excited to offer visitors and residents the experience and convenience of Buc-ee's and can't wait to become a part of the local community."
Buc-ee's remains committed to providing a friendly, safe and fun stop for travelers everywhere. Buc-ee's St. Augustine will bring approximately 200 new, permanent, full-time jobs to the area with great pay, full benefits, 401k and three weeks of vacation.
