Of course, there will be the popular Beaver nuggets.

“We are excited to become part of the iconic Daytona Beach culture,” said Stan Beard of Buc-ee’s. “From the Speedway to Bike Week to the Art Festival, Buc-ee’s will fit right in. We have been so impressed by the efforts of both Volusia County and City of Daytona Beach staffs, and we can’t thank them enough for their support during the construction and opening process. This is a great place to do business.”

This Daytona Beach location is the company’s second in Florida, as it just recently opened a travel center in St. Augustine in February.

Buc-ee’s is also expanding into Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina, company officials said.
