The world’s largest Buc-ee’s convenience store will no longer be in Texas – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

The famous Buc-ee’s in New Braunfels, once praised as the largest travel center ever, will lose its title when a new Buc-ee’s in Tennessee opens and becomes the world’s largest grocery store.

It seems like everything is not bigger in Texas.

Throughout almost its 40-year history, Buc-ee’s gas stations and extraordinarily large grocery stores have only been in Texas. In 2019, the first Buc-ee’s opened outside Lone Star State, Alabama. The company now has six travel centers outside its home state, with more on the way.

Buc-ee's opened in 1982 and remained in Texas for nearly four decades.  But despite what this sign says, Buc-ee's are no longer 'a Texas thang'.

Buc-ee’s in Sevierville, Tenn., – positioned to be “the first stop on everyone’s Smoky Mountain adventure,” the CEO told a Tennessee TV station – will be the company’s first “Big Store” prototype. It has 120 fuel pumps, a 250-foot car wash and 74,000 square feet of indoor shopping.
