PIONEERING CIGAR ROLLING AS ENTERTAINMENT SINCE 1995
“Any cigar smoker is friend, because I know how he feels.”
Alfred de Musset
In the early 90’s, amid the financial market explosion and most of America enjoying the “finer things,” Joe Sweigart created Cigartainment.® His vision was inspired by his wife and fueled by his burning passion to be an entrepreneur. Sweigart Cigar Co. has since built lasting client relationships, one hand-rolled cigar at a time, elevating the business and art form of the cigar into a category all its own.
Whether showcasing the art of rolling or offering complimentary cigar services, Sweigart Cigar Co. offers special experiences that leave lasting memories for guests and clients alike. The experiences vary from corporate outings to golf tournaments; special birthday celebrations to weddings. And all the while Joe has built a referral-based business sustaining two families for 20 years and still going strong.
