City, county and state officials gathered Wednesday to celebrate the groundbreaking of Buc-ee's Athens.

The destination travel center is set to feature tens of thousands of square feet in retail space, 120 fuel pumps and a wide variety of food, clothing, gear and more for customers. It's set to open sometime in 2023 and bring more than 170 new jobs — possibly more than 200 — to the area.
