Team Cone

We provide enjoyable products that enrich people’s lives.

Cone Distributing is a beverage distributor presently operating in 22 counties in north central Florida. Douglas P. Cone, Jr. founded the company in 1985, when he was only 31 years old. Mr. Cone and his team built the company on healthy and mutually profitable relationships by providing the right product, at the right time, in the right place.

Initially, the company’s territory was limited to only four rural counties and carried brands from just a few suppliers. Since the inception of the company, ownership and management have been very strategic and innovative in their approach to better serving the state of Florida.

Team Cone is committed to seeking the highest standards at every level. To date, annual volume has reached approximately 6 million cases. The leadership team continuously looks for strategic growth opportunities in geographic territory and suppliers.
