City Maker Conversations: Dani Cone

Posted on

Seattle native Dani Cone has deep roots in local retail, with her great-grandfather opening the original Cone & Steiner back in 1915. Dani opened her first coffee shop (Fuel Coffee) in 2005, then grew that operation to multiple locations. She opened her first Cone & Steiner General in 2013 in Capitol Hill and followed that up with a Pioneer Square location and the newest shop on First Avenue. In this episode of our City Make Conversations, presented by Alaska Airlines, Dani sat down with DSA President & CEO Jon Scholes to chat about local retail, the importance of place and her journey to becoming one of Seattle’s most recognizable small business owners.
