‘Famous for Pizza:’ Casey’s General Store planned for Huber Heights


Casey’s General Store plans to build a new location in Huber Heights, according to city planning documents.

The new 4,685 square foot retail convenience store and gas station is planned for 6007 Old Troy Pike, according to the documents. The site is currently home to a Flowerama that will close in coming months, the store’s owner said.

Mayor Jeff Gore said he hopes the development will help spark additional investment in southern Huber Heights.

“I’m glad to see another nice facility, a nice structure, a gas station being built in that part of town toward the southern end,” Gore said. “That shows there is good investment opportunity for businesses in the southern end of town.”

The plans, which were discussed at a recent city council work session, still need to be approved by council.

Casey’s, which markets itself as “Famous for Pizza,” has made a recent push into Ohio. The business is an ubiquitous staple in many rural Midwestern communities, especially in Iowa where it is headquartered.

Established in 1968, Casey’s General Stores Inc., (NASDAQ: CASY) operates more than 2,000 stores in 15 states. Only 17 percent of the company’s stores are found in areas with populations of 20,000 or more, according to company data. The company plans to build or acquire 90 to 120 stores in fiscal year 2018, according to its second quarter results.

Councilman Richard Shaw said there is potential for the site to become one of Casey’s flagship stores in Ohio. He additionally said the site could feature electronic vehicle charging stations.

The company is also developing locations in New Lebanon and Clayton.
