CROSSVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Buc-ee’s will break ground on its new travel center in Crossville on June 15.

The groundbreaking ceremony will begin at noon at 2045 Genisis Road. Buc-ee’s Crossville will mark the first Buc-ee’s travel center in Tennessee.

Buc-ee’s Crossville will occupy more than 53,400 square feet and offer 120 fueling stations just outside its store with snack, meal and drink options for travelers.

The travel center will include classic Buc-ee’s favorites like Texas barbeque, homemade fudge, kolaches, Beaver Nuggets, jerky and fresh pastries.

“Crossville is centrally located between Nashville and Knoxville––an ideal stop for folks headed west to Music City or east to the Great Smoky Mountains,” said Stan Beard of Buc-ee’s. “Crossville is also the Golf Capital of Tennessee, and a gorgeous destination in and of itself. We can’t wait for Buc-ee’s to provide another great reason for folks to make their way through Crossville.”

The new business plans to bring at least 175 new jobs to Crossville. Permanent full-time positions will be available with pay beginning above minimum wage, full benefits, 401k and three weeks of vacation.

In 2020, Buc-ee’s announced plans to expand its stores across the South. Buc-ee’s broke ground on its first Kentucky location in April of 2021. Buc-ee’s first travel center in South Carolina is also currently under construction and is slated to open in the summer of 2022.
