TEXAS CITY, Texas — Loni Laranang couldn't wait any longer. So, two hours before the doors to Buc-ee's newest travel center opened she was in the parking lot.

"I am so excited," Laranang, who lives in Texas City, said. "I just love Buc-ee's so much. It is amazing. I hope it is a really big store, which it looks like it is, so T-shirts."
 
So excited she was that she gave the statue of the company's logo — a giant beaver — a kiss on the cheek as she waited for the doors to open at 6 a.m. today.

Laranang said she likes Buc-ee's for its customer service and food products.

That's the same for Hazel Surratt, who was positioned at one of the store's gas pumps about 20 minutes before the official opening. Sporting a tie-dyed Buc-ee's logo T-shirt she counted down the minutes until the pumps would be operational.
