Buc-ee’s will break ground on a new travel center June 7 in Johnstown, Colorado. The start of construction will be dedicated with a ceremony attended by local leaders.
Located at 5201 Nugget Road, this location will be the first travel center in Colorado. It will occupy 74,000 square feet and offer 116 fueling positions just outside its store with thousands of snack, meal and drink options for travelers. Texas barbecue, homemade fudge, kolaches, Beaver nuggets, jerky and fresh pastries will all be available as well.
Attendees of the Buc-ee’s Johnstown groundbreaking ceremony are scheduled to include Gary Lebsack, mayor, and Johnstown Town Council members Troy Mellon, Damien Berg, Jesse Molinar, Chad Young, Dianne Morris and Vanessa Dominguez.
Founded in 1982, Buc-ee’s has 35 stores across Texas. Buc-ee’s began its multi-state expansion in 2019 and has opened two travel centers in Alabama, two in Florida and two in Georgia. Buc-ee’s recently opened its first stores in Kentucky and South Carolina, while Tennessee has its first two stores under construction and Mississippi and Missouri locations are under development.
“We picked a great partner in the community of Johnstown for our first store in Colorado,” said Stan Beard. “At the foothills of the beautiful Northern Front Range, this Buc-ee’s will introduce all sorts of bikers, hikers, skiers and campers to the cleanest restrooms, friendliest staff, and freshest food they’ll ever find on a road trip.”
Buc-ee’s Johnstown will bring 175 new, permanent, full-time jobs to the area with starting pay beginning well above minimum wage, full benefits, a 6 percent matching 401k and three weeks of paid vacation.
