Buc-ee’s will unveil its new Alabama travel center in Leeds with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, January 25.
According to a release, the celebration will be attended by local leaders such as Mayor David Miller.
This will be the second Buc-ee’s location in the Yellowhammer State, joining Buc-ee’s Loxley in Baldwin County.
Buc-ee’s Leeds occupies more than 53,250 square feet and offers 120 fueling positions just outside its store with thousands of snack, meal and drink options for travelers on the go.
The Texas-sized travel center will also feature the same award-winning restrooms, cheap gas, unique products and excellent service that have won the hearts, trust and business of millions in the Lone Star State for the past four decades. Buc-ee’s favorites, including barbeque, homemade fudge, kolaches, Beaver nuggets, jerky and fresh pastries, will all be available as well.
“Leeds is home to a vibrant community that we feel honored to join,” stated Stan Beard of Buc-ee’s. “The new location is conveniently located for travelers–just east of Birmingham and on the way to Atlanta. We are thrilled to offer a friendly pit stop for passersby and provide residents of Leeds with new employment opportunities.”
Buc-ee’s Leeds will reportedly bring upwards of 200 new, permanent, full-time jobs to the area with industry leading pay, benefits, 401k plans and three weeks of vacation.
