New Millerville development to feature TX-based Buc-ee's
BATON ROUGE - Buc-ee's, the behemoth gas station and shopping center with a cult following, will open its first location outside of Texas at a new development at the intersection of I-12 and Millerville.
Frequent travelers of I-10 in Texas know Buc-ee's: a 50,000 to 60,000 square foot store with as many as 90 filling stations. The company also boats the "Cleanest restrooms in America."
A stop at a Buc-ee's will get you gas, food and clothes since the stores offer a line of clothing and "Beaver Nuggets" - a smorgasbord of sweets meshed together. Treats of all other kinds abound.
"It's the oasis on the interstate. You start thinking about what you're going to get to snack on at the first '200 miles to Buc-ee's' sign. By the time you get there, you've lost all self-control and buy more than any reasonable person needs," one Buc-ee's fan told the Dallas Morning News last summer when the newspaper covered a Buc-ee's opening.
The Millerville Location will be the only location in Louisiana. All other locations are in Texas, most clustered in a triangle between Waco, San Antonio, and Houston.
The Buc-ee's will be part of The Greens at Millerville, which will also feature housing and other commercial areas. The entire project is about 52-acres fronting I-12.
Specific hiring information for the gas station has not been released but the company solicits job applications HERE.
