Since its creation in 1904 at the World’s Fair, the waffle cone has been a staple in the dessert industry with a simple, sweet taste. As ice cream and other foods have evolved and modernized, sadly the beloved cone has remained unchanged for over 100 years! This was our inspiration for starting The Konery.

The Konery is the only waffle cone manufacturer that specializes in gourmet cones available in a variety of flavors, colors and seasonal inspirations. Creativity, innovation and originality are what drives us to produce the best waffle cones in the world.


Kristine Tonkonow is the cone expert & founder of The Konery. With a passion and appreciation for food, Kristine lives to eat and puts genuine love into every bite of her creations. She is a born and raised New Yorker proud to be making delicious treats in her hometown of Brooklyn.
