The leadership of Cone Distributing (Team Cone) is proud to announce that for the second consecutive year, the company has been named to Florida Trend Magazine’s 2020 list of Best Companies to Work For in Florida™.
Team Cone earned this designation after evaluation by an independent third-party organization of the company practices, policies, information, and especially employee satisfaction surveys. The anonymous employee satisfaction surveys contributed 75% to the overall competition score.
“Being voted for the second year to the list of Best Companies to Work For in Florida shows that our culture of caring is our competitive advantage,” says Team Cone Human Resources Director Jonathan Jarrell. “We believe that our company’s culture will take us into the future. Our teammates again showed us they agree with us by the way they responded to these surveys.”
“Cone Distributing has continued to evolve, improve culture and innovate over the 22 years I have been employed,” says Mike Faulkner, Team Cone Key Accounts Manager. “It is truly deserving of the accolades for achieving the distinction as one of the best companies to work for in Florida. Teammates are genuinely valued and recognized as crucial players in the future and continued prosperity going forward.”
The company’s founder, Douglas P. Cone, Jr. says that he is again honored to be named to this list by his teammates. “Last year, we were humbled to be named to this list for the first time and we knew what a challenge it would be to be named to the list for a second year,” Cone says. “We knew our Team was up to the challenge, and they have again exceeded our expectations.”

About Florida Trend’s Best Companies to Work For in Florida™ competition
Each year, Florida Trend Magazine partners with the Best Companies Group to administer anonymous surveys to employees in eligible companies around Florida. Employers complete an in-depth questionnaire and employees have the opportunity to offer their honest feedback by taking part in a company-wide survey. Once both portions of the assessment are complete, the data is analyzed to determine if an organization has what it takes to be the “best.” The list of Best Companies is published in the August edition of Florida Trend Magazine.
