5 Good Reasons Why A Buc-ee's Should Open Up In Washington State

I remember when I first went to college in Nampa Idaho and ran into my first Maverick gas station.

Is Washington State Going To Get A Buc-ee's In The Future?

I'm always amazed when you run into something in another state and then suddenly they expand into Washington State. 

The list is long on what Washingtonians want like In-N-Out Burgers and Trader Joe's and then suddenly they seem to appear overnight.

One such place is Buc-ee's.

I see my friends on social media all the time posting about it and it's not in Washington State but it made me curious about why a Buc-ee's would be great to see in the Evergreen State.

If you don't know what a Buc-ee's is, you are missing out. Buc-ee's got its start in 1982 in Texas and has started expanding in 2018.

Buc-ee's is a massive travel center which caters to more than just truckers and they've already got a new location in Colorado that's the closest to Washington State.

According to Wikipedia, new locations include GeorgiaFloridaKentuckySouth CarolinaTennesseeColorado, and Missouri, with new locations planned for North CarolinaMississippiOhioVirginiaLouisianaArkansasArizonaKansas, and Wisconsin.

So Washington State might be another great location for a new Buc-ee's.

Here are five reasons why Buc-ee's would be a big hit in Washington State:

1) If you are looking for the cleanest restrooms at a truck stop, Buc-ee's has won awards for the cleanest bathrooms.

2) All locations include a bakery. fudge and brisket bar - YUM!

3) Buc-ee's travel centers usually include 80 - 120 gas pumps so generally no waiting in line to fuel up.

4) Buc-ee's also has a ton of general merchandise so if you forgot something, Buc-cee's is sure to have it.

5) As Buc-cee's has expanded, they've added car washes to some of their travel centers making Buc-cee's a truly one-stop travel center.

No word on if we'll get a Buc-cee's in Washington State but I once thought Maverick would never expand past Idaho and here they are now so don't be surprised if a Buc-cee's doesn't show up in the future.

Here are 25 acts we'd like to see at the Benton/Franklin County Fair and Rodeo. Our only criteria were that the musical acts had to be affordable for a fair of our size hence you won't see The Eagles, Elton John, and acts that unrealistic to come to the Tri-Cities. Take a look at our list and see if you agree with our picks!
