Buc-ee's favorites including Texas barbeque, homemade fudge, kolaches, Beaver Nuggets, jerky and fresh pastries will all be available. Visitors will find thousands of snack, meal and drink options, as well as 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 40 years.

Since beginning its multi-state expansion in 2019, Buc-ee's has opened travel centers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Now, Buc-ee's is headed West with store groundbreakings in Colorado and Missouri.
"We are excited to be in Western Kentucky along a beautiful stretch of I-65 between Nashville and Louisville," said Stan Beard of Buc-ee's. "Smiths Grove will be the smallest town with a Buc-ee's. It has a big heart just like we do, so we'll get along just fine!"
Throughout the project, the Buc-ee's development team will continue to work closely with local partners including the City of Smiths Grove, KYTC and Warren County. Buc-ee's Smiths Grove will bring at least 200 jobs to the area, with starting pay beginning well above minimum wage, full benefits, a 6% matching 401k, and three weeks of paid vacation.
