Dani has three great loves: great coffee, great food, and community. In2005, after over 12 years in the coffee industry, Dani opened Fuel Coffee, and by 2007had expanded it to 3 locations. In 2008, during a troubled economy, High 5 Pie waslaunched to bring a little “delicious comfort” to tough times. Dani believes that peoplecome together over good food and drink and strives to build places that create thisexperience. Community is created through good food, and Dani believes that theneighborhood market is a true catalyst to creating community. Cone & Steiner Generalopened on Capitol Hill in January of 2014, followed by the Pioneer Square store inAugust 2014 and a Downtown store this summer in July 2017. In the past 12 years,Dani’s businesses have been fortunate to gain local and national media attention (MarthaStewart, Food Network, Bon Appetit, Sunset) and created great opportunities for otherways to connect to the local public such as speaking at TEDx, UW, SU, SAAS, BushSchool, and more. Love of community is a driving force for Dani, who greatly enjoysserving on the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce Board, the Capitol Hill HousingBoard, the GSBA Small Business Council, and is Co-Founder of Seattle EntrepreneurialWomen (SEWgsba) and actively participates in many neighborhood groups and events.Dani holds a BA in Business Economics from Willamette University.
