When it was announced last month that Buc-ee’s, a popular gas station and convenience store chain based in Texas, was opening its first Louisiana location at Millerville Road and Interstate 12, Baton Rouge residents went wild.
And now, the location has a possible opening date. Buc-ee’s is set to open in mid-2017 if everything goes according to plan, according to The Greater Baton Rouge Business report.
“It’s on the interstate, it has the traffic, it has the employment base, and it has LSU, which is a great college town and a great college experience,” said Buc-ee’s owner Arch “Beaver” Aplin, according to The Business Report. “It has everything we wanted. We’re excited about bustin’ into Louisiana.”
