ANKENY, Iowa—This week Casey’s celebrated the grand opening of its new, $62 million distribution center in Joplin, Missouri. The new, state-of-the-art warehouse, logistics and distribution facility adds 125 jobs to the region.
“Casey’s has had a long-standing presence in Missouri and provided opportunities to thousands of Missourians across the state,” said Missouri Gov. Mike Parson during the grand opening celebration. “We appreciate Casey’s continued commitment and look forward to its future growth and success.”
First announced in 2019, the new facility is the company’s third distribution center and will serve 400 to 600 of the company’s stores. Casey’s operates more than 2,200 convenience stores throughout the Midwest and South with approximately 500 stores across Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas.
“Every day at Casey’s, we are providing guests freshly prepared foods and the products they need and want. Our Joplin distribution team will play a key role in delivering on this promise,” said Darren Rebelez, president and CEO at Casey’s. “We appreciate the support from the state of Missouri and city of Joplin as we worked to make this project a reality. Casey’s Joplin Distribution Center is key to our plan for accelerated store growth over the next two years.”
