Casey’s is The Official Pizza and Beer HeadquartersTM

As the fifth-largest pizza chain and third-largest convenience store in the U.S., Casey’s is a unique one-stop shop for anyone looking for handmade, delicious pizza and refreshing, ice-cold beer.

According to a recent Casey’s survey, pizza and beer are some of the best food and beverage pairings out there. Here’s why:

  • Half of adults ages 21 and older and two-thirds of millennials say there’s no better pairing than pizza and an ice-cold beer.
  • Nearly 1 in 2 adults ages 21 and older would like to order a pizza from a place where they can also get beer. And as The Official Pizza and Beer Headquarters, Casey’s answers this call.
  • This popular pairing is also perfect for a party, with nearly two-thirds of adults ages 21 and older noting that pizza and beer are the easiest combo to please a crowd. And 55% of adults ages 21 and older and 72% of millennials say that having pizza and beer makes them the favorite host.

Tom Brennan, Chief Merchandising Officer at Casey’s said in Monday's announcement,

“One thing that truly separates Casey’s is the convenience of ordering crave-able, handmade pizza from a place where you can also buy fuel, groceries and, of course, beer. We are The Official Pizza and Beer Headquarters because we are the only leading pizza chain in the country where you can also purchase a wide variety of beer, wine and liquor options. Whether you're watching the big game, headed to a get-together or having dinner with your crew, pizza and beer is the perfect pairing and there’s no easier place to get both than at Casey’s.”
