Casey’s, well-known for its pizza offerings, is looking to add a one-of-a-kind new position to its C-suite.

The convenience store operator, which bills itself as "The Official Pizza and Beer Headquarters,"  is officially launching a search for its first-ever chief pizza & beer officer ahead of National Pizza Week (Jan.14 - 20). The position will serve as the “utmost authority” on sampling, researching and pairing Casey’s pizzas with the best beer combinations, the company said. 

In addition to leading pizza and beer pairing research, the new position  will be responsible for creating social media content to inform Casey’s shoppers about research findings, and attending public events to spread their passion for Casey’s pizza and beer.

“As ‘The Official Pizza and Beer Headquarters,’ Casey’s offers the unique ability to provide guests with craveable, handmade pizza and a variety of beer options to pair with it,” said Tom Brennan, chief merchandising officer at Casey’s. “With over 200 beer options and plenty of fan-favorite Casey’s pizzas to choose from, the chief pizza & beer officer will have their hands – and beer cooler – full. Great pizza deserves great beer, and the chief pizza & beer officer will play a key part in making sure Casey’s guests know about both.”

Applications for the position will be accepted through Jan. 24. Benefits of the position include job supplies like receiving pizza and beer from Casey’s stores, branded glassware and other swag, coverage of travel costs for position duties and a negotiable compensation package.

To help the company fill the newly-created role, Casey’s has tapped former NFL player and internet comedian/content creator Anthony “Spice” Adams as its search consultant.

“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 & beer officer – and the opportunity for me to lead the search,” said Adams. “Tasting pizza and beer is fun – but it’s also serious work for this pizza and beer expert. After all, resting on the taste buds and shoulders of this new position is the pizza enjoyment of millions across Casey’s Country.”

Based in Ankeny, Iowa, Casey’s operates more than 2,600 stores in 17 states.
