Team Cone

Team Cone provides enjoyable products that enrich people’s lives.

Cone Distributing is a beverage distributor presently operating in 22 counties in north central Florida, with offices in Ocala and Tallahassee.

Douglas P. Cone, Jr. founded the company in 1985 when he was only 31 years old. Mr. Cone and his team built Team Cone 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 beer distribution in Florida.

Team Cone is committed to seeking the highest standards at every level, and our leadership team continuously looks for strategic growth opportunities in geographic territory and suppliers.



Cone Distributing proudly works with customers from Hernando county to Bradford county to Liberty county and all points in between.


Employees with 10+ years

Behind every great beer we sell is a great team getting it to our customers. Cone Distributing employs over 280 people to service our 22-county footprint. We work hard and we support and promote employees who do.
