Ankeny, Iowa-based Casey’s General Stores Inc., a convenience store chain, says it has closed on the previously announced acquisition of 40 stores from Pilot Corp. The acquisition gives Casey’s a strong presence in the Knoxville, Tennessee market.
The purchase is part of the implementation of its three-year strategic plan that was shared in January 2020, when the company set a three-year goal of adding 345 stores to its chain.
“We are pleased to complete this transaction and expand our footprint in Tennessee and Kentucky,” said Darren Rebelez, president and CEO of Casey’s. “The Haslam family and the Pilot team have been great to work with, and we look forward to welcoming team members to Casey’s and bringing our hand-made pizza program to these excellent stores.”
Casey’s is a Fortune 500 company operating more than 2,400 convenience stores. Founded more than 50 years ago, the company has grown to become the third-largest convenience store retailer and the fifth-largest pizza chain in the United States.
