BUCA Services Co. Ltd. was established on November 8th, 1993. It opened its doors quietly, with no fan-fare, offering the residents of Belmopan and surrounding areas, tires, batteries and lubricants, plus services such as tire repair, battery charging, oil change, engine wash, oil bath and auto cleaning. It started with a small staff of four, serving the public and contributing to the economic development of Belmopan.
In 1994, the Company bid for and got the contract to manage the Belmopan Shell Gas station. Hence the name of the site became known as the BUCA Shell Belmopan Station. The company managed that site for some 14 years. During this time it had a staff of 16, between both the gas station and the service center.
In April of 2008, the (Barbados based) Sol Co., which had bought out the Shell Co. here in Belize, chose not to re-new BUCA's Contract to manage their site. so, BUCA Services Co. Ltd. decided to forge ahead by expanding on its compound, and building its own privately owned gas station.
The BUCA SERVICE STATION opened on September 12th, 2008. It boast 4 pumps with 16 dispensers and tank storage capacity of 16,000 gallons (bringing back kerosene to Belmopan). Also a fully stocked convenience store which offers TopUp and Gimme Dalla e-pin sales, cold beers, fresh snacks and credit card payment facility. Belize Telemedia Ltd. also placed a public pay phone at the site. The station has adequate parking and space to accommodate large vehicles. BUCA Services Co. Ltd. along with the gas station staff grew as well, now providing jobs for 20 workers.
The company, while committed to serving the community through its business endeavors, has also given back. Via donations to a number of schools, sporting events, community based projects and non-profit organizations - Rotary, Lions, Helpage to name a few.
