Action News Jax first learned about the new development back in July 2022 when economic leaders approved plans for a large travel center off Hwy 99 on Interstate 95.

Buc-ee’s later confirmed that it would build a 74,000 square-foot location with 120 fuel pumps, making it one of its biggest stores.


The location will bring more than 200 full-time jobs to the area with pay starting above minimum wage. Employees will get full benefits, three weeks of paid vacation and 6% matching 401k.

The store is expected to open sometime in 2025 and will be the third Buc-ee’s in Georgia along with Calhoun and Macon–Warner Robins metro area.
