Buc-ee’s To Break Ground On First Location In Missouri

Buc-ee’s will break ground on a new travel center Aug. 23 in Springfield, Missouri. The start of construction will be celebrated with a ceremony at noon, attended by local leaders.

Located at 3284 N. Mulroy Road, the new location is the first Buc-ee’s travel center in Missouri. It will occupy 53,000 square feet and offer 120 fueling positions outside its store with thousands of snack, meal and drink options for travelers. 


Attendees of the Buc-ee’s Springfield groundbreaking ceremony will include Springfield Mayor Ken McClure and Springfield Councilman Abe McGull. 

“Springfield is the birthplace of Route 66,” said Stan Beard. “It’s perfectly natural that Buc-ee’s, the ultimate road-trip destination, is coming to this gorgeous stretch of Americana history. We are delighted to be a part of this community and excited to make Springfield our first stop in Missouri.”

Buc-ee’s Springfield will bring 200 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.

Founded in Texas in 1982, Buc-ee’s is also celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Buc-ee’s operates 43 stores across Texas and the South. Since beginning its expansion in 2019, it has opened travel centers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina and Tennessee. The company is planning on heading West with store groundbreakings in Colorado and Missouri.
