Buc-ee’s Opens World’s Largest Convenience Store, 75,000 Square Feet, 120 Gas Pumps

A newly opened Buc-ee’s is living up to the saying that everything’s bigger in Texas.

The new travel center, which officially opened for business on Monday, sprawls over 75,000 square feet in Luling and is equipped with 120 gas pumps.

Its size makes it the largest constructed by the popular travel center chain. Prior to the Luling location’s launch, that title belonged to a 74,000-square-foot Buc-ee’s in Tennessee.

The company marked the new Buc-ee’s Luling with a ribbon-cutting ceremony the same day that it started welcoming customers. Gov. Greg Abbott attended the opening festivities for the record-setting facility along with other local officials.

“As the state’s greatest fan of ‘beaver nuggets,’ I am proud that Texas is home to the world’s best convenience store,” he said in a statement. “Texas is proud to be the homebase of the growing Buc-ee’s empire. Buc-ee’s is just one important piece of the economy of the bigger, better Texas we are building for generations to come.”
