Ad Insider: GM, Toyota, Stellantis, BMW Report Sales Gains.

General Motors outsold Toyota at the halfway point for a second consecutive year, and Ford was on pace to be the top brand for the first time in three years... Stellantis’ U.S. sales rose 6.4% in Q2, the first gain it has reported in two years, and the automaker aims to build on that positive momentum in the remainder of 2023. Dodge, Chrysler and Ram each achieved sales gains in the quarter, with Dodge attaining a 37% increase as Durango sales more than tripled... German carmaker BMW’s sales grew significantly in Q2, rising 11.3% vs. the same quarter last year to 626,726 vehicles. From January to June, 1.21 million BMWs, Mini and Rolls-Royces were delivered, BMW said. That was 4.7% more than in the first half of 2022.

Casey’s General Stores is the third-largest convenience store chain in the U.S., but perhaps lesser known is that the retailer is also the nation’s fifth-largest pizza chain. So it’s no surprise that Casey’s is giving pizza — and the food category overall — a starring role in its new three-year strategic plan for growth. The three primary strategies for this next stretch of Casey’s journey are accelerating the food business, including prepared foods, dispensed beverages and grocery; growing its store count; and enhancing operational efficiencies. The Iowa-based chain operates more than 2,500 convenience stores across a 16-state footprint.
