Founders Cigar Co. is proud to announce the beginning of their distributorship agreement with Don Doroteo Cigars.
Don Doroteo Cigars made its debut at the 2022 PCA Trade Show (Premium Cigar Association) in Las Vegas, but in actuality their story dates back beyond the 20th century to 1936 when Juan’s Grandfather, Doroteo Fermin Delgado decided to follow in his late father’s footsteps, by growing tobacco in the heart of Santiago, Dominican Republic.
Their cigars are currently being produced in the La Aurora factory in the Dominican Republic with some of their tobacco coming from their own farm in the Yaque Valley of the Dominican Republic. With the move to have Founders take on the distribution of their cigars, this enables Don Doroteo to have a more centralized location in the United States to fulfill orders and handle all distribution needs.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to be working with Founders for our fulfillment needs. Their operations and efficient capabilities will ensure timely shipment to our customers and fit the warehousing needs we have simultaneously. With the PCA release of our core line, “Salt of the Earth,” we wanted to ensure we were well-positioned to handle the anticipated increase, and the guys at Founders made it easy for us. Having a partner we can trust to serve our customers at the level of quality we are receiving is invaluable. Working with Founders has provided us with the peace of mind we need to focus on our core business.”, shared Juan Lugo in a recent statement.
Founders Cigars is a young boutique brand that also debuted at the 2022 PCA Trade Show, and according to Angelo Fraboni, Co-Founder of Founders Cigar Co:
“We are excited to announce the launch of “Founders Fulfillment officially.” This is such a great opportunity to begin our distributorship with a brand as historied as Juan’s. Garret Robinson, their Vice President of Sales, is local to us here in Minnesota, which is great. Having recently expanded our storage and humidor space, we couldn’t be more ready to support a brand as incredible as Don Doroteo. We look forward to growing the fulfillment side of our business and helping to continue serving the cigar community with our new Minneapolis-based fulfillment center.”
