Ohana Cigars began in "year" with the support of my father, Frank Rodriguez after being involved in the industry since I was 22. It was my father who gave me that extra push with a question, "Why don't you start your own cigar company?", after a few years of being in retail and representing other cigar brands.
We made arrangements to visit several factories in Nicaragua. It was amazing to view the various smaller locations and their limited selection of tobacco. The next day we went to one of the largest factories in Nicaragua. I was blown away but became concerned about how I would be lost in importance and lack of care.
