Goodyear City Council gives Buc-ee’s the green light to build its first location in Arizona

GOODYEAR, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Buc-ee’s, Texas’s (and the internet’s) favorite convenience store could soon be heading west to Arizona.

Monday, the Goodyear city council unanimously approved a plan to rezone 71 acres in the city just off Interstate 10 and Bullard Avenue. The land was previously zoned for agricultural purposes, but now travelers from near and afar could soon experience a 75,400 square-foot Buc-ee’s retail store and gas station. The council acknowledged the excitement about the popular chain coming to Goodyear but stressed that the company has promised it will not turn into a truck stop.

Still, it’s not a done deal. Arizona’s Family reached out to Buc-ee’s, which says it’s “considering” building a store.

“I’m thrilled that Buc-ee’s is interested in Goodyear as a new location,” said Goodyear Mayor Joe Pizzillo. “It’s more than just a gas station or a convenience store. Buc-ee’s could provide our residents with what they’ve been asking for – which are more options – and that’s what they’ll get as our city continues to grow. It would be a popular stop for visitors in the Valley, including spring training fans.”

“We are happy to hear of the city’s decision tonight. Buc-ee’s is continuing its process toward making Goodyear our first home in Arizona, and this was a really big step toward that goal,” said Stan Beard, Buc-ee’s director of Real Estate and Development.

The chain currently operates 47 stores in Texas, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri and South Carolina. According to data compiled by industry analysts at C-Store Dive, the travel store chain has aggressively expanded into southern states in recent years and had previously eyed plans for a store in Arizona and Colorado.

What is Buc-ee’s?

Buc-ee’s is widely regarded for its lovable beaver mascot and delicious hot food (hello, brisket and tacos!). The chain also currently boasts the record for the largest gas station in the world at its Sevierville, Tenn. location. Not only that, but Buc-ee’s won “Best Restroom in America,” in 2012 (so you know this isn’t a Circle K affair, either.) And if you want to operate a car wash, you can make enough to make an honest, six-figure salary.

What else might you find at Buc-ee’s? Sure, there are walls of nuts, gummy candies, and your favorite gas station snacks, but there are also many things you won’t see anywhere else. Take, for example, Beaver Nuggets, a best-seller that’s probably best described as a sweet version of “Corn Nuts” you’ll find at the grocery store. And the food? Oh man, the food! It’s authentic Texas-style barbeque the whole way: smoked for at least 12 hours and served on a mouth-watering bun.

Feeling adventurous? Get some Buc-ee’s-branded hot sauce (and take some home, too). But if you’re also looking for something to cater to that sweet tooth, you’ve got fudge, Dr. Pepper Icees’, and every southern grandmother’s favorite classic: banana pudding.

Small plane crash lands in Goodyear neighborhood

GOODYEAR, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — A small plane made a crash-landing Saturday morning on a neighborhood street in Goodyear.

The 4-seat plane landed on Via Villa Street in the neighborhood south of Interstate 10 and west of Dysart Road. According to a Goodyear fire spokesperson, the plane lost oil pressure shortly after taking off from Glendale Municipal Airport around 7:40 a.m. The pilot tried to land at the Phoenix-Goodyear Airport but landed about 7 minutes later in the neighborhood.

The plane hit a tree, a mailbox, and one parked unoccupied vehicle before it fully stopped. The plane then started leaking fuel, which fire department crews were able to quickly handle. The FAA says two people were on board the plane. There are no reported injuries, and there is minimal damage to the parked vehicle.

The Goodyear Fire Department says the plane, a Cessna 172P, lost engine power and had to make an emergency landing. Via Villa is closed between Central Avenue and Palo Verde Drive. The plane is registered to a flight school operating out of the Glendale Municipal Airport. “Not something you see every day right an airplane coming down in a neighborhood,” said Goodyear Fire Captain Tim Rayburn.

The people Arizona’s Family spoke with in the neighborhood said they see planes flying above their homes every weekend, but they never expected one to crash right on their street. “We hear a loud bang and go, ‘Oh, what’s that noise?’ it could be anything. We thought it was like a trash can, but no. We come out here, and there’s just a plane. It’s just crazy,” said Jesse Flores, a neighbor.

It was a startling start to Saturday for one Goodyear neighborhood. “I’m at a loss for words,” said Mathew Arenivas, a neighbor. “The plane pretty much looked crumbled,” said Flores. “100%. Super surprising, like this is such an anomaly. Never expect something like this to happen,” said Arenivas.

Andres Laguna was drinking coffee when it happened right in front of his home. He rushed outside to help the people on board. Thankfully, both the pilot and passenger were able to walk away unharmed. “Nothing happened to the houses or the people that were in the airplane,” said Laguna.

He found parts of the plane in his yard, and there is some damage to his property, but he knows it could have been a lot worse. “Everything we can replace, but not lives,” said Laguna.

Arizona’s Family learned the plane involved is registered to Angel Aviation, which is a flight school in Glendale. We reached out to them, and they declined to comment at this time. Now it’s up to the FAA and NTSB to figure out what caused the engine to fail in the first place.

The southwest Valley is home to some of the fastest-growing cities in the state, and with plenty of growth comes plenty of new restaurants.

While there's growth all around, Goodyear and Buckeye have been particularly hot spots. Buckeye's population ballooned from 50,000 in 2010 to over 105,000 in 2022, while Goodyear's population went from 65,000 to over 105,000 in the same amount of time.

Here are five new restaurants for all those in the southwest Valley to try.

Country Griddle

The family-owned country griddle opened up earlier this year in Goodyear, serving home-style breakfast and lunch. The extensive menu includes everything from burgers to salads for lunch, and breakfast burritos and pancakes for breakfast.

Country Griddle is at 330 N. Dysart Road, Suite 101 in Goodyear. It's open every day from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Inca Fusion

This Peruvian restaurant opened in Avondale at the beginning of July and serves classic dishes like ceviche and papa a la hauncaina, which is a dish of boiled eggs in a creamy cheese sauce. The restaurant also serves Peruvian dishes influenced by Japanese cuisine, such as sushi.

Inca Fusion also has its fair share of adult beverages, like margaritas and micheladas. It also has live music twice per month, with the next event on Sept. 29.

Inca Fusion is at 1619 N. Dysart Road, Suite 104, in Avondale and is open every day from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Steakhouse, tacos and noodles:34 new metro Phoenix restaurants are now open

Macayo's

The well-known classic chain has now come to the Litchfield Park and Buckeye city line. Macayo's Mexican Food opened there earlier this summer, as the chain expands throughout the Valley. Stop by for classic dishes like chimichangas, tacos and adult beverages like margaritas and sangrias.

Macayo's is at 19355 W. Indian School Road in Litchfield Park and is open from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Popeyes

You can now get the classic Popeyes chicken sandwich or wings in Litchfield Park right on the Buckeye border. The first Popeyes in the city opened up in early August at the southeast corner of Indian School Road and Jackrabbit Trail in Verrado. The location is right across the street from a Fry's shopping center technically located in Buckeye, complete with other restaurants and retail options.

Popeyes is at 19365 W. Indian School Road in Litchfield Park. The location is open from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day.

Coming soon: Ocho Rios Jerk Spot

This Jamaican restaurant already has one location in Phoenix and is expanding to Goodyear, set to open for business on Sept. 30. Named after the Jamaican town known for its beaches and Dunns River Falls, Ocho Rios Jerk Spot serves classic Caribbean dishes like festival, patties and plenty of jerk chicken and jerk pork, along with vegetarian options. The Goodyear location will also have Rum Punch and Brunch like the Phoenix location on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., consisting of mimosa and rum punch towers and a live DJ.

The location will open on Sept. 30 and will be located at 13291 W. McDowell Road, Suite E-7, in Goodyear.

Goodyear's master-planned community of Estrella is still growing. Here's what's coming

Estrella, one of the largest master-planned communities in the state, still has a lot to look forward to.The development has been in the works since the 1980s, first opening in 1988. By 1990, Phoenix hadn't yet reached a population of 1 million but was quickly growing. Goodyear's population was only about 2,700 in 1980 and has since ballooned to over 105,000. Most of that growth occurred between 2000 and 2020.Now, 21,000 residents live in Estrella alone, said Jeff Zimmerman, director of entitlement and developments at Estrella....

Estrella, one of the largest master-planned communities in the state, still has a lot to look forward to.

The development has been in the works since the 1980s, first opening in 1988. By 1990, Phoenix hadn't yet reached a population of 1 million but was quickly growing. Goodyear's population was only about 2,700 in 1980 and has since ballooned to over 105,000. Most of that growth occurred between 2000 and 2020.

Now, 21,000 residents live in Estrella alone, said Jeff Zimmerman, director of entitlement and developments at Estrella. That area is about 40-45% built out, with about 7,600 homes on the ground. And Estrella is still entitled for another 8,000 to 10,000 homes, depending on lot sizes, and will eventually total about 20,000 acres.

Estrella was acquired in 2021 through a joint venture between Harvard Investments, Toll Brothers and Värde Partners. The land was purchased for $212.5 million and already had residents living on the developed 2,000-acre portion of the community.

The master-planned community is close to Estrella Mountain Regional Park, which has about 25 miles of hiking trails. Within the Estrella development, Zimmerman said the community has about 65 miles of hiking trails, which goes with the sort of desert living vibe that the community is aiming for.

Estrella has 72 acres of lakes and parks, and just recently announced the opening of a new park near South 180th Drive and West Tecoma Road.

It's easy to find a hiking trail and then go to one of Estrella's lakes and rent a paddle boat, Zimmerman said. Outdoor activities like that help Estrella to keep Goodyear's original small-town feeling despite the city's rapid growth.

But Estrella still has plenty of room to grow as well. Residents have been specifically asking for pickleball and restaurants, Zimmerman said. And there are several new restaurants coming in 2024, including a new wine bar and a new Mexican restaurant. While they won't exactly be lakeside, they'll be located close to it. That area is expected to become a commercial hub and is right near the Estrella Lakeside Amphitheater.

While Estrella hasn't had the residents to attract the number of restaurants it was originally hoping for, Zimmerman said the new ones are expected to perform very well due to how much residents want them. Estrella hopes to attract more lakeside dining because that's one thing that isn't often found in the Valley as a whole.

The Estrella Lakeside Amphitheater recently hosted Ballet Under the Stars to kick off Arizona Ballet's 2023-24 season. And every spring, it hosts the Goodyear Lakeside Music Festival, which attracted 10,000 people this year.

For those interested in Estrella, the community has a resident-for-a-day program, where people can try out the community's amenities for free, including the pools, fitness center and yacht club with complimentary paddle boat and canoe rentals.
