Casey ditched his chemistry degree and began his career in the restaurant business as a humble dishwasher. He quickly moved through the ranks serving in such positions as busboy, waiter, banquet manager at Lakeside County Club, and finally General Manager at a mom and pop Italian Restaurant. In 1989 Casey and his wife Nancy opened a small Italian restaurant in Spring, Texas called Amerigo’s Seafood and Pasta when their daughter, Tina, was only three months old. It was such a hit that they decided to open Amerigo’s Grille in The Woodlands, Texas in 1994. It was the first upscale restaurant in The Woodlands and remains a premiere destination for fine dining.
