Kituwah, LLC and Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI) has announced details for the 200-acre development at exit 407 in Sevierville, TN. The previously unnamed project that was being referred to as Project 407 has now been named “The 407: Gateway to Adventure.” The first business that will be located in the development will be Buc-ee’s Family Travel Center.

Buc-ee’s, a Texas-based business, is known for its clean bathrooms, fresh BBQ, fast and friendly service, and providing a travel stop like none other.  The Sevierville location will be the company’s first “Big Store” in the country. With over 74,000 square feet, more than 120 fueling positions, EV Charging Stations, and a car wash over 250 feet long, it will be the first store of its kind.

Kituwah CEO Mark Hubble said, “Our goal is to be the first stop on everyone’s Smoky Mountain adventure – and Buc-ee’s is the perfect partner to ensure we give our customers a great beginning and ending to their family vacation. This is a business about excellence in customer experience with a huge fan following.”

Stan Beard, Director of Real Estate for Buc-ee’s, said, “It is not a coincidence that we chose The 407 as our first big store location outside of Texas. We will be the proverbial ‘welcome sign’ at the front door of the exceptional travel experience that the Smoky Mountains, Sevierville, and Sevier County have to offer. You won’t forget your first visit to Buc-ee’s and it won’t be your last! We are thrilled to share our over-the-top customer experience and be a pivotal part of the Kituwah and EBCI vision for the Gateway to Adventure.”

We will continue to keep you updated on the progress over the next several months.

The owner and founder of The Smoky Mountain Life, Kim Hunt, is a lifelong resident of southeast Tennessee and lover of all things Smoky Mountains.
