New Buc-ee’s car wash ‘tunnel’ in Baytown may scrub Katy facility as world’s longest

September 9, 2022

Today, the Buc-ee's convenience store in Katy is home to the world's longest car wash. But could a new Buc-ee's car wash in Baytown soon knock the Katy operation off its pedestal next year?

A recent filing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Registration shows Lake Jackson-based Buc-ee's plans to spend $6 million to add a car wash "tunnel" at its Baytown location, which opened in 2014 at 4080 East Freeway. The filing says construction will begin in November and wrap up in May 2023.

There's no indication, though, how long the Baytown car wash will be. Therefore, we don't know yet whether the Baytown facility will steal the title of the world's longest car wash from its 255-foot-long counterpart in Katy. For the sake of comparison, an NFL football field is 360 feet long.
