ANKENY, Iowa – Casey’s pizza, which has multiple locations in Elkhart, is conducting a national search to find candidates to fill a position the company is calling Chief Pizza and Beer Officer.

“I thought that I had the best job in the world when I played in the NFL, but then Casey’s told me about its Chief Pizza and Beer Officer – and the opportunity for me to lead the search,” Adams said. “Tasting pizza and beer is fun – but it’s also serious work for this pizza and beer expert. After all, resting on the tastebuds and shoulders of this new position is the pizza enjoyment of millions across Casey’s Country.”
