As 2021 draws to a close, Missouri Partnership is taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from the past year.
In April, Casey’s opened its new state-of-the-art facility in Joplin, Missouri. Casey’s invested $62 million in the new facility, and company executives expected to hire around 125 employees.
“Casey’s has had a long-standing presence in Missouri and provided opportunities to thousands of Missourians across the state,” Governor Mike Parson said at the time. “We appreciate Casey’s continued commitment and look forward to its future growth and success.”
“Every day at Casey’s, we are providing guests freshly prepared foods and the products they need and want,” said Darren Rebelez, President and Chief Executive Officer at Casey’s. “Our Joplin distribution team will play a key role in delivering on this promise. 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.”
