Buc-ee’s Confirms Plans For New Travel Center In Johnstown, CO

Buc-ee’s is building its first travel center in Colorado. Planned for Johnstown, approximately one hour north of Denver, the new location is set to open in 2024. In addition to introducing the company to Colorado consumers, the Johnstown location marks the first expansion for Buc-ee’s outside of the South.


Located south of Weld County Road 48 and west of I-25, this center will occupy 74,000 square feet and offer 120 fueling positions just outside its store with thousands of snack, meal and drink options. It will also offer the same award-winning restrooms, cheap gas, quality products and excellent service that have won the hearts, trust and business of millions in the South for nearly 40 years.

Buc-ee’s favorites, including Texas barbecue, homemade fudge, kolaches, Beaver nuggets, jerky and fresh pastries, will be available as well.

The travel center will be the most western location and highest altitude of a Buc-ee’s to date. Founded in 1982, the company has 35 stores across Texas, including the world’s largest convenience store. Buc-ee’s began its multi-state expansion in 2019, and has since opened two travel centers in Alabama, two in Florida and two in Georgia. The company broke ground on its first location in South Carolina in 2020, then broke ground on its first Kentucky and Tennessee outposts in 2021, which it followed with two more groundbreakings in Alabama. 

“We think the Buc-ee’s experience will translate well beyond the South, and what better place to test that theory than one of the coolest states in the West?” said Stan Beard of Buc-ee’s. “Colorado is a popular playground for our favorite customers: families on road trips. Johnstown is perfectly situated in northern Colorado, along a highly traveled route through beautiful country. Buc-ee’s and Johnstown make a great match.” 

Throughout the project, Buc-ee’s corporate development team will work closely alongside state and local leadership. This location will bring 200 new jobs – 90 percent of which are full-time – to the area, with starting pay beginning well above minimum wage, full benefits, 401k and three weeks of paid vacation.

The company is committed to providing a friendly, safe and fun stop for travelers everywhere.
