The Buc-ee’s World’s Largest store was not the first Buc-ee’s convenience store. Buc-ee’s was founded by Arch “Beaver” Aplin and Don Wasek when they opened their first Buc-ee’s convenience store in Lake Jackson, Texas. The concept behind this first location was cheap ice cream and clean restrooms. The formula was popular with customers, so the Buc-ee’s chain slowly expanded, along with the concept itself and, obviously, the size of its stores. The New Braunfels world’s largest Buc-ee’s opened on May 7, 2012.
Besides having the world’s largest designation, the New Braunfel’s Buc-ee’s has also been recognized as having the World’s Cleanest Restrooms by Cintas business supply company. This would be a notable accomplishment for any convenience store, but particularly for this Buc-ee’s location, which has 83 restroom stalls to keep clean 24/7.
