Boom Town USA - Buc-ees comes to Daytona Beach

“We’re excited about the progress. I think this is symbolic of a state. People want to be in Florida. They’re leaving a lot of these failed states to come here”

Great to be in Daytona Beach for the grand opening of Buc-ee’s located off I-95 and LPGA Blvd. Buc-ee’s is the Shangri-La of service stations and will be a hit with locals and visitors alike. Florida is proud to lead on new business openings!

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the famed Texas-based gas station Buc-ees, which opened a location in Daytona Beach, and used the opportunity to showcase that Florida remains open, continuing to reject blue state lockdown measures despite pressure from establishment media and Democrats.

DeSantis noted Florida’s unemployment rate is 4.8 percent, under the national average of 6.3 percent. “If you look at some of these lockdown states they’re eight and nine percent. If we had nine percent or ten percent unemployment in this state, can you imagine how many lives would be destroyed with that if you had locked everybody down and destroyed all these businesses and cost all these jobs?

“We’ve helped save thousands of businesses. We’re one of the few states where people are actually opening new restaurants, hotels, and then here in Buc-ees, even though we had the pandemic hit, you know they were full speed ahead, and I think the results are going to speak for themselves.”
