Buc-ee’s Sevierville location opens June 26, 2023

Get ready to boogie with the beaver.

Buc-ee’s, home of the world’s cleanest bathrooms, freshest food, and friendliest beaver, will unveil its newest travel center in Sevierville, Tennessee, on Monday, June 26, 2023. Doors will open to the public at 6 a.m. and a ribbon-cutting ceremony will follow at 11:00 a.m.

Originally slated to open in May, Buc-ee’s will be the first business to open at The 407, a massive new entertainment development from the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians (EBCI), under construction now.

When it debuts, Buc-ee’s Sevierville will be the largest travel center in the world. The store’s 74,000-square-foot floor plan will remain the biggest Buc-ee’s until that record moves back to Texas, where construction is currently underway on a 75,000-square-foot location in Luling, TX.

Located at exit 407 off Interstate 40 and Winfield Dunn Parkway, Buc-ee’s Sevierville offers 120 fueling positions outside its store with thousands of snack, meal, and drink options for travelers on the go. The new travel center also features a state-of-the-art car wash (coming soon), along with 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 40 years. Buc-ee’s favorites, including Texas barbeque, homemade fudge, kolaches, Beaver Nuggets, jerky and fresh pastries, are all available as well.

State and local leaders attending the ribbon-cutting ceremony will include Sevierville Mayor Robbie Fox, Sevier County Mayor Larry Waters, EBCI Principal Chief Richard Sneed, and many other partners and officials who helped Buc-ee’s bring the project to Sevierville.

Buc-ee’s Sevierville will bring at least 200 new full-time jobs to the area with starting pay well above minimum wage, full benefits, 100 percent matching 401k up to 6 percent, and three weeks of paid vacation.
