Fishman & Associates Helping to Build the First Two Buc-ee’s Travel Centers in Florida
VENICE, FLORIDA – Fishman & Associates is working with J. Raymond Construction to build the first two Buc-ee’s Travel Centers in Florida. The two, 50,000 square foot convenience stores broke ground earlier this year in St. John’s County and in Daytona Beach. They are expected to be open for business early next year.

Buc-ee’s can also lay claim to having the nation’s cleanest restrooms based on a contest by the service company Cintas.
