Big is Small at Buc-ee’s.
There is a company in Texas that calls itself a convenience store. The name of this outfit is Buc-ee’s, which is guess is a weird spelling of what you and I would probably write as Bucky’s.
But what do we know?
Anyway, Buc-ee’s has 36 locations, all but one in Texas. And they have figured out how they can always be convenient . . . how you will never have to wait to get your fill-up. You see, a typical Buc-ee’s location . . .
. . . has as many as 150 gas pumps. And, if you feel the need for a snack to tide you over, well . . .
Buc-ee’s Snack Wall has got you covered.
We have convenience stores here in Hawaii, although on a somewhat smaller scale. There’s one about a mile up the hill from us—Hanzawa store. They have two pumps, so occasionally you have to wait.
Personally, that’s OK with me.
I love Buc-ee’s, but their gas is usually more expensive than other stores. They are famous for CLEAN restrooms and usually no waiting in line. Their food is good too – hot and cold sandwiches, cheese & meat snack cups, and kolaches (love them), and lots of jerky! Open 24 hours too.
It is always bigger in Texas!
