Why Didn’t Buc-ee’s Make the List of America’s Cleanest Bathrooms?
Something stinks in Texas, and it ain’t the bathrooms at Buc-ee’s.
That’s because Buc-ee’s staked its claim to fame with spotless restrooms. I don’t know about you, but a spot-free, shiny porcelain throne in a snug, private stall is the first image that comes to mind when someone mentions the place.
However, Buc-ee’s apparently doesn’t have squat (sorry) on QuickTrip – whatever the heck that is. I’m not the most well-traveled guy, so maybe I’m missing out. I’ve never even heard of QuickTrip.
According to users of GasBuddy (which is actually a fantastic app I recommend downloading), QuickTrip is the top potty stop across the U.S. User voted it #1 in nine states, including Texas.
Here’s what I think happened. As wonderful as Buc-ee’s are, they’re spread out across the state, and unless you live near one, visiting is a big event that only happens on road trips.
That’s right. There are tons of these things all clustered around Fort Worth, so you have more people using those bathrooms on a daily basis, and since they’re in a major metro area, they’re probably checking GasBuddy for decent gas prices more often, meaning they’d be more likely to vote on this topic.
It’s just a theory.
