Locally Owned and Operated

Lauren Clifford & Dustin Dariano (Owners)

SanCap Pak n Ship is owned by a husband and wife team - Dustin Dariano & Lauren Clifford. The couple were married on the island in 2013, officially moved to the here full time in July 2015, and started  SanCap Pak n Ship January 2017. Prior to living in Sanibel, the couple lived and met in Mullica Hill, New Jersey. Although their educational back grounds are not in business, with hard work and the help of family and friends, SanCap Pak n Ship has continued to flourish since opening nearly 2 years ago.  If you visit the store, you will most likely see Dustin manning the counter with their bulldog Samie snoozing nearby.

SanCap Pak n Ship Mascot and Loyal Companion (Samie)

The official, unofficial Mascot of SanCap Pak n Ship - Samie the Bull - helps Dustin out at the shop most days (Sometimes she decides she needs a mental health day and stays in bed). When Samie is not snoozing in the shop, or begging for treats, she is tasked with greeting the customers with a warm, albeit gnarly, smile. Samie is 6 years old, and loves people and kids, although she's not much for fetch, she loves treats and endless scratches.
