Buc-ee’s Ltd. will break ground on a new travel center in Hillsboro, Texas, on Jan. 24.
Located at 165 State Highway 77, “Hillsboro is one of the best forks in the road we’ve ever seen,” said Stan Beard, director of real estate for Lake Jackson, Texas-based Buc-ee’s. The chain’s strategy is to position itself as a destination along well-traveled highways. “Whether you’re headed to Fort Worth and West Texas or Dallas and East Texas, you can make Buc-ee’s your stop, coming and going.”
Buc-ee’s Hillsboro will occupy 74,000 square feet and offer 120 fueling positions.
When it opens, the store will offer Buc-ee’s staples including Texas barbeque, fudge, kolaches, Beaver Nuggets, jerky and fresh pastries. Customers will find thousands of snack, meal and drink options, as well as the restrooms and fueling positions for which the chain is known.
Attendees of the Buc-ee’s Hillsboro groundbreaking ceremony will include Mayor Andrew Smith of Hillsboro along with members of the Hillsboro City Council, as well as Hill County Judge Justin Lewis and the Hill County Commissioners Court.
