Great news if that is correct. There was a rumor last year they were coming to Florence but apparently did not happen. Will be competition for QT and Spinx. Also would be nice if we would get a WaWa but they don't compete in QT territory.

Anderson County is a good location for Buc-ee's as it is a big midway travel stop between Charlotte and Atlanta on I-85 and is a logical southeastern expansion region. They are mainly in Texas but also have locations in Alabama and Florida. Next I would think they may want to infill in Georgia perhaps Atlanta region, or even possibly Macon or Valdosta.

There is already a big QT truck stop travel store on I-85 in Anderson County and I think it may be the same Exit 21 where the new Buc-ee's is planning to build.

They have a huge following. Texas size with a lot of food and merch. Big get for Anderson.

Yes much bigger store than typical QT or Spinx. And reportedly great food selection and travel amenities. Great addition for Anderson and the Upstate.

Life gets tougher for Stewart Spinks and his family. Spinks is a wealthy guy, but he would probably be a lot wealthier by now if QT had never moved into the region.

I had not seen this thread earlier. I remember seeing pay and benefits posted on a big sign last time I was in Buc-ee's. Starting pay was well above minimum wage and with 3 weeks vacation. An article mentioned Buc-ee's paying for infrastructure improvements to exit 21 to handle the increased traffic. This is a big win for Anderson.

LOL I saw those. They look like they have some pretty good brisket and pulled pork sandwiches plus a jerky aisle.
