Persephone began with Ali and Kevin Cohane. Amidst snowy ski seasons and alpine adventures, while working in restaurants to make the most of their time in the Tetons, a dream began rooting in the couple's consciousness. They had fallen in love with Jackson (and each other) and wanted to use their passions, science and design, to create something new in the community. After moving to study culinary arts in Paris, and then design in Chicago, Kevin and Ali moved back to the Tetons and opened a small wholesale production space. First were town square farmer's markets, then a brick and mortar a block away, and now with three Jackson Hole coffee shops and cafe's complimenting various parts of the valley, the Cohane's are grateful to be able to share the time-honored traditions of French pastry in the wild west of Wyoming.
