The world's largest convenience store is now open in Luling, Texas, with 120 fuel pumps, a massive 75,000 square feet store and the "world's cleanest bathrooms."

Why it matters: Texas-based Buc-ee's — renowned for huge locations and super-clean bathrooms — has developed a cult-like following across the South.

Zoom in: There are now 50 Buc-ee's across the country with 36 locations in Texas.

  • There also are locations in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, Missouri and Colorado.
  • The company broke ground on its first Virginia and Mississippi locations and plans are in the works for the first Arizona and North Carolina Buc-ee's.
  • The new Buc-ee's, like other locations, has thousands of food and drink options, including "Texas barbeque, homemade fudge, kolaches, Beaver Nuggets, jerky and fresh pastries," the company said.

Flashback: The flagship Buc-ee's travel center (the giant store that made the brand famous) opened in Luling in 2003, but the first location actually opened in Clute in 1982, Axios' Madalyn Mendoza writes.
