(CTN News) – In the near future, Buc-ee’s gas stations and their famous bear might make their way to Wisconsin, as the Texas-based chain is currently going through the permit process for a new location in the Village of DeForest. Madison is only a few miles away from that place.
The best national treasure in Texas by far is Buc-ee’s,” Levi Douglas told 12 News on Friday.
The fan Douglas grew up in Texas and is now a resident of Milwaukee. He is a huge fan.
“Oh my God!” he exclaimed, starting from the kolaches, to the wall of jerky, to the wall of popcorn, to the wall of candy.
Buc-ee’s, which is well known for its barbecue and clean bathrooms, is currently in the process of building a nearly 74,000-square-foot eatery near Interstate 94. In fact, it is the main route between Madison and Wisconsin Dells.
It is a known fact that most people in the South are familiar with Buc-ee’s. However, 12 News wanted to find out just how widely popular is.
How about Buc-ee’s gas station?”
In response, Alex Brodsky, a Milwaukee resident, said, “Of course, of course.”.
Sharon Van Lauven replied, “No, I haven’t”, while on a walk in Bay View with her husband.

It is worth noting that the closest gas station at the moment is in Kentucky, but it is expected that the popular gas station and its rodent mascot will be coming to the Badger State in the near future.
According to the Village of DeForest, the company is coordinating with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation in order to conduct traffic studies on the project.
Buc-ee’s is in the midst of the permitting and design phases for the DeForest store. We will make sure to keep you updated on when construction is scheduled to begin in 2024 and when the store is expected to open, Buc-ee’s Jeff Nadalo said in a statement to 12 News.
I guess I will be going to the Dells just for the Buc-ee’s,” Douglas replied.
