Buc-ee’s is coming to Tennessee!

On June 27, the travel center chain will unveil a new location in Crossville at 2045 Genesis Rd.

The store is Buc-ee’s first location in the Volunteer State, according to a release from the company.

Doors will open to the public at 6 a.m., and a ribbon-cutting ceremony will follow at 11 a.m.

According to the release, the new location will offer the same award-winning restrooms, cheap gas, quality products and excellent service Buc-ee’s is known for.

Buc-ee’s has one other store currently under construction in Tennessee, located in Sevierville.

Founded in 1982, Buc-ee’s now has 35 stores across Texas, including the world’s largest convenience store, officials said.

Buc-ee’s began its multi-state expansion in 2019, and has since opened two travel centers in Alabama, two in Florida, and two in Georgia.

Buc-ee’s recently opened its first stores in Kentucky and South Carolina as well, and broke ground on its first Colorado location in June 2022, according to the release.

Buc-ee’s Crossville occupies more than 53,400 square feet and offers 120 fueling positions just outside its store with thousands of snack, meal and drink options for travelers on the go.

Buc-ee’s favorites including Texas barbeque, homemade fudge, kolaches, Beaver nuggets, jerky and fresh pastries are all available in the store as well.

“Crossville is in the heart of such a beautiful community, located just about halfway between Nashville and Knoxville,” said Stan Beard, of Buc-ee’s. “Whether folks are headed to Music City, the Great Smoky Mountains, or beyond, Buc-ee’s Crossville will now provide a delicious, safe, and fun place to stop. There’s never been a better time to be in Tennessee.”

Buc-ee’s Crossville will bring 175 new, permanent, full-time jobs to the area with starting pay beginning well above minimum wage, full benefits, a 6% matching 401k, and three weeks of paid vacation, the release said.
