Ezra Zion Cigar Company has acquired Cigar Federation Tobacos, Cigar Federation Store and the Cigar Federation community, the company announced today in a press release.
“This is a major step for us as a company, one that brings us full circle back to our CigFed roots,” said Kyle Hoover, co-owner of Ezra Zion. “As the original founders of Cigar Federation, it’s a really cool homecoming.”
“Our vision is to build upon the great work done in the Cigar Federation Store and Cigar Federation Tobacos. These outlets fit perfectly with the core competencies of our company,” added Chris Kelly, co-owner of Ezra Zion.
This acquisition is in addition to Ezra Zion’s other recent acquisition of TX Distribution, a regional North Texas distribution company. “TX Distribution and our multiple warehousing capability will allow us to give the customer an even better experience when they purchase their cigars from a Cigar Federation website,” said Kelly.
“We need more avenues to deliver the cigars we’re producing. Both from Ezra Zion Headquarters and from the factories we partner with in Florida and Nicaragua. The cigars we have resting and waiting will be our best cigars to date. Believe me, you ain’t see nothing yet,” said Kelly.
For now, Logan Lawler will remain as CEO. The Moderators of the Cigar Federation community will continue to have the freedom to post any cigar review or rating as they see fit.
“Cigar Federation is a unique community. It’s paramount to us to safeguard the freedom of expression that exists on the site,” stated Hoover. “We want to do our part and help build the cigar industry as a whole. With the FDA situation the way that it is, we need to band together now more than ever.”
“We will be announcing the final piece of this puzzle in a few weeks; that is the opening of an Ezra Zion brick and mortar retail location in the DFW area,” Hoover added. “We will be providing a formal press release with all of the details at that time. Suffice it to say, it will be a cigar destination location like no other that we know about in our industry!”
