The Proven Track Record of Swisher Sweets Little Cigars
There may be no more interesting story in the cigar industry, or in business for that matter, than the one that led to Swisher Sweets little cigars. David Swisher entered the cigar business in 1861, not because he was passionate about smoking tobacco, but as payment for a debt he was owed. Swisher kept the company running, but because he was more focused on his merchant pursuits, it would be nearly three decades until the family business was sincerely made a priority.
Two of David Swisher’s son’s purchased the small operation in 1888 and immediately set out to make a name in the cigar industry. Within the decade, the pair grew the company to include more than 1,000 employees hand-rolling hundreds of thousands of cigars each and every day, which meant millions of cigars entering the marketplace each year.
The company now known as Swisher International Group has been in business for more than 150 years and Swisher Sweets little cigars have been on the market since 1958.
