    Buc'ees founders donated thousands of dollars in support for Republican candidates Perry and Abbott, according to campaign finance reports. There are recent reports that they have also contributed to anti-immigrant, anti-gay/lesbian candidate Dan Patrick.

    Also, the company has no nondiscrimination policy (it would behoove them to adopt one), and an issue is still up in the air regarding complaints against a transgender employee, and their support for this employee is of mixed response. Perhaps the company can become more progressive and supply an answer to this issue:

    If Buc-ees can respond to the abovementioned issues, then we can be assured that this company is all-inclusive. But, for now, Buc-ees does not appear to be a friend nor an all-inclusive supporter of diversity. Only time will tell.
