His professionalism, work ethic and family values fit right into our culture of hard work. I respect his commitment and the reputation he has worked so hard to build with the hundreds of brick and mortars and consumers he has come across with. I can’t be any more excited to welcome Zev to our small family.”

I immediately recognized his passion for, as well as knowledge of, Premium Cigars & Tobacco. When he started Fratello Cigars a few years later, I knew it would not only be an amazing experience for him, but that his presence would have an instant & lasting effect on our industry. Watching what he has achieved in such a short time is a testament what he brings to the table, and I look forward to learning from him as we take the Fratello brand to the next level.”
