The iconic Buc-ee’s chain has moved forward with plans for its first Arizona gas station and convenience store by acquiring more than 20 acres in metro Phoenix.

Texas-based Buc-ee’s — known for its clean bathrooms, made-to-order sandwiches, fudge and beef jerky wall — will build a massive convenience store totaling 75,400 square feet and gas station with 120 pumps in Goodyear.

On March 12, Buc-ee’s acquired a 22-acre site at the southeast corner of Bullard Avenue and Interstate 10 for $17.24 million from entities connected to EJM Development Co., according to Maricopa County land records.

Buc-ee’s declined to comment for this story.

The sale came a couple of months after Buc-ee’s received rezoning approval from the city of Goodyear for the new store and other uses on a larger 71-acre site that could see new warehouse, restaurant, hotel and retail uses.
