TAAT® Chief Executive Officer Michael Saxon said, “Over the past four decades Buc-ee’s has built a very impressive presence in the Southern U.S., with continuously growing traffic from regulars and tourists alike. We are excited to be launching TAAT® in Buc-ee’s and believe it can perform quite well in their stores. The Buc-ee’s team has shown great enthusiasm about TAAT® because it aligns so well with their business objectives and offers significantly higher profit margins compared to tobacco cigarettes.
