Buc-ee’s to debut Smith’s Grove Travel Center on June 24

Smiths Grove will be the smallest city in the country with a Buc-ee’s

Buc-ee’s will unveil its newest travel center on June 24 in Smith’s Grove, Kentucky, just north of Bowling Green.

The new travel center will be the second location in Kentucky for the Texas-based company; the Richmond location opened in April 2022.

Located at 4001 Smiths Grove-Scottsville Road, Buc-ee’s Smiths Grove will occupy 53,000 square feet and offer 120 fueling positions.

After the opening of Buc-ee’s Smiths Grove, Buc-ee’s will operate 50 stores across Texas and the South. Since beginning its multi-state expansion in 2019, Buc-ee’s has opened travel centers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, Missouri, and Colorado. Buc-ee’s broke ground on the first Virginia and Mississippi locations earlier this year.

“We are so excited to celebrate the grand opening of our latest travel center on this beautiful stretch of I-65 between Nashville and Louisville,” said Stan Beard of Buc-ee’s. “Smiths Grove may be small, but the community has welcomed us with as much love and enthusiasm as our largest cities, so we’re excited to be here and watch this partnership grow.”

Buc-ee’s Smiths Grove will bring at least 200 jobs to the area, with starting pay beginning well above minimum wage, full benefits, a 6% matching 401k, and three weeks of paid vacation.
