Do not sell and send the home. We have sold enough of our businesses out of the country. Selling to them just sends our money and jobs away.

I love Casey's because I know the story of how it was started by Iowans. I go there for all of my gas,knowing that I am helping a locally started business. Hope all involved will fight to keep it that way! USA

Please do not sell out to the other guys. Casey's is the best convenience store in the world. My family has just recently moved back to Iowa and the first thing we did was to have a Casey's tenderloin and a coke. This was something we could not get in the south.
They had never heard of tenderloins as a sandwich just a roast. Please so not sell because of this but. Do not sell because this is one of the last stores that are not from another country. Casey's is IOWA and we all know this. Anytime you want to get a coke you go to Casey's. So PLEASE DO NOT SELL ANY CASEY'S STORES
Thank you Susan

come on. This is business, and it's all about making a buck. These stock holders could care less who will own it, or where they are from. It's all about increasing thier personal wealth, and they could care less about the employees or the communities they serve. Don't let the warm and fuzzies in the advertisments fool you, It's about return on investment.

Susan--I think most places in the U.S, outside of the midwest, you will find that no one knows what a tenderloin sandwich is. I was craving a tenderloin sandwich SO MUCH when I was in Maryland and expecting twins. I asked my mother if, when she came out to help me, would she please pick me up a tenderloin sandwich at my favorite local hometown sandwich place, pack it in freezies and bring it to me. She didn't. I'm not sure where the tenderloin boundary is, but the Mason-Dixon line may have something to do with it. I heard of a former midwesterner that opened a restaurant in Arizona that featured tenderloin sandwiches and it was going well there.
As to the possibility of a buyout, I really hope we can keep the ownership American.
