HOUSTON – Buc-ee’s dominates the travel stop scene in Texas, and the convenience store chain with a beaver mascot recently expanded out of the Lone Star State, but how about overseas?
A photo tweeted by journalist Maurice Chammah of the familiar Buc-ee’s sign in Jordan had him scratching his head.
The Marshall Project writer said he spotted the familiar red-hatted beaver logo while driving on a highway north of Amman, the capital of the Middle East country.
“I have so many questions,” Chammah said in his tweet directed at his fellow Texans.

I was driving on a highway north of Amman, Jordan, and found a...Buc-ee's. Or at least, a place claiming to be Buc-ee's.
I have so many questions.

Some of those questions posed by his fellow Texans included queries about the jerky selection and the quality of the bathrooms.
It turns out that Buc-ee’s does not have a location 7,000 miles away from Texas.
“Buc-ee’s recently became aware of the copycat location in Jordan which is completely unrelated to our company and we are evaluating all of our options,” said Jeff Nadalo, a spokesman for the company.
The only official Buc-ee’s location outside of Texas is along Interstate 10 in Robertsdale, Alabama.
