But no, sadly it’s not here in the Tampa area. But this one would be a bit closer than Daytona. A bullseye has been set for a third Buc-ee’s location in Florida.
Fox 13 reports that Buc-ee’s has put in paperwork to build one of their enormous gas stations in Ocala just off I-75. There will be lots of debate before they get the stamp of approval to go ahead and build. So for now, for those Beaver Nuggets, you’re going to have to head over to Daytona or Saint Augustine.
Buc-ee’s Daytona location offers 104 pumps and a store that’s over 50,000 SQUARE FEET! Buc-ee’s is a well known gas station chain to Texans but new to most of us in the Sunshine State. Buc-eee’s first Florida location opened in Saint Augustine. They have over 120 pumps.
The food and shopping is a big draw for many. Buc-ee’s has an enormous selection of brisket, nuts, jerky, fudge, and of course Beaver Nuggets. It’s a sweet corn puff snack that’s similar to caramel corn according to the report above. As for shopping, if you’ve been on the search for a Buc-ee’s Beaver onesie, you’re in luck. The other big thing Buc-ee’s is known for? It’s bathrooms. They promise to be spotless and the nicest bathrooms of any gas station you’ve ever seen.
