Blake Buchanan, Founder

Our Story|Origins

In the summer of 1990, Blake Buchanan opened the first Bahama Buck's in Lubbock, TX.

He started with one ice shaver and the hope of a college job that didn't involve mowing grass or flipping burgers. Constructing the original store by hand, he enlisted help from three generations of his family, and staffed it with friends and college students.
The tropical sensation caught on, and with the help of his wife, Kippi, and his friend, Eric Lee, the summer job turned into a full-time vocation.

Working to keep the spirit of the original Bahama Buck's alive, every franchise is operated with the same enthusiasm as the first Buck's. The entire Bahama Buck's brand, that we call family, strives to ensure that each flavor becomes a favorite and each guest is served as a valued friend.

Island Life|It's A Bright Future

With over a hundred locations, we’re honored to be the nation’s premier tropical-themed dessert destination.

Rest assured, our expertise in innovating island indulgences and creating Mini-Vacations didn’t just happen by chance. Bahama Buck’s history is full of inspiration, fun, creativity, and of course...Blessing Our Guests.

As Bahama Buck’s continues to experience the blessings of growth, we depend on our dedicated franchise family to guide and drive us to the next levels of success. We can achieve amazing things together by sharing our individual gifts while always focusing on maintaining our culture of excellence.
