Missouri Wins 2019: Casey’s General Stores Announces Plans for New Distribution Center in Joplin, Missouri

All month long, Missouri Partnership is taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from the past year. Today we are taking a look back at Casey’s General Stores’ expansion in Joplin, Missouri.

In November, Casey’s General Stores, Inc., a Fortune 500 company operating 2,100 convenience stores in 16 states throughout the Midwest and the South, announced plans to expand with a new, state of the art warehousing and logistics/distribution facility in Joplin. The new facility is the company’s third distribution center and will initially serve approximately 400 to 600 of the company’s stores.

“Casey’s is an outstanding company, and we are excited it is expanding in our state. This new facility will not only provide quality jobs for Missourians in the Joplin region, but also support existing locations across our state and the Midwest,” said Missouri Governor Mike Parson. “We are proud to see companies continuing to choose Missouri for our strong central location, skilled workforce, and business-friendly climate.”
