Owners Du and Lee Choe of The Uptowner Coffee Shop have been married 23 years
The faces behind some of the most recognizable businesses in Alexandria have found a way to navigate the challenges of working together while keeping their love alive. The owners of The Uptowner share their secrets to maintaining both a successful business and a happy relationship. According to the Alexandria Gazette Packet, "Lee: “We have been married for 23 years and have two children, 21 and 23. We have been able to divide up our work responsibilities. It is a lot of work, especially for Du, and we do sometimes get tired of each other. But at the end of the day, we are happy to be together.”

Du: “A benefit of working together is that we don’t have to say things to each other – we instinctively know what each other wants and needs when we are working. We don’t have to communicate with each other the same way we have to with other employees. That helps make things easier for everyone."
