This article focuses on the growth and development of Casey's General Stores Inc. After a challenging few years, during which Casey's General Stores Inc.'s founder Donald Lamberti retired and same-store sales growth slowed to the pace of a Sunday driver checking out Iowa's cornfields, the chain of 1, 369 rural locations is on an upswing. With nearly all company goals for the fiscal 2005 met or exceeded, CEO Ronald Lamb and the rest of his senior management team are confident about Casey's future, as they plan steady growth through acquisitions in the chain's nine-Midwest-state market and, perhaps, beyond. Grocery and other merchandise sales increased 6.3 percent and foodservice sales grew by nearly 10 percent.
