Buc-ee’s, home of the world’s cleanest bathrooms, freshest food and friendliest beaver, will open its newest travel center in Calhoun, Georgia, on Monday, Aug. 23, 2021. A ribbon-cutting ceremony slated for 1:00 p.m. EST will celebrate the debut, which will be attended by local leaders including Mayor Jim Palmer of Calhoun, Gordon County Administrator Jim Ledbetter, and Gordon County Development Authority President Kathy Johnson. Doors will open to the public at 6:00 a.m. EST.
Located at 601 Union Grove Road just off I-75, Buc-ee’s Calhoun will bring 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 nearly 40 years to one of the most beloved coastal cities in the country.
Buc-ee’s Calhoun marks the second Buc-ee’s travel center in Georgia, and is approximately 160 miles west of the first Georgia outpost, located in Warner Robins. The two Georgia stores continue Buc-ee’s multi-state expansion across the South, joining locations in Florida and Alabama. Buc-ee’s first travel centers in South Carolina and Tennessee are currently under construction, while Buc-ee’s continues to operate 38 locations across Texas, where it was founded.
Buc-ee’s Calhoun will occupy more than 53,200 square feet and offer 120 fueling positions just outside its store with thousands of snack, meal and drink options for travelers on the go. Buc-ee’s favorites including Texas barbeque, homemade fudge, kolaches, Beaver nuggets, jerky and fresh pastries will all be available.
“Calhoun is an ideal stop for folks making their way from central Georgia up through the gorgeous foothills of the northern part of the state, then on to Chattanooga in Tennessee and beyond,” said Stan Beard of Buc-ee’s. “It’s a vibrant region, full of history and beauty, and Buc-ee’s is thrilled to join such a special community.”
Buc-ee’s remains committed to providing a friendly, safe and fun stop for travelers everywhere. Buc-ee’s Calhoun will bring at least 175 new, permanent, full-time jobs to the area with great pay, full benefits, 401k and three weeks of vacation.
