Our Client

A humidor and cigar wholesale distributor, whose parent company is a prominent cigar importer and distributor, sought to diversify its distribution channels by targeting convenience stores, truck stops, and rest stops along major highways and interstates. They would do this by placing humidors in these locations and filling them with their cigars. To execute their plan, they needed to establish a new subsidiary and secure financing from a lender capable of supporting their vision.


The distributor faced several challenges in realizing their expansion goals. The first hurdle was establishing a new subsidiary to facilitate their distribution strategy. To do this, they needed a lender willing to finance this new entity with the flexibility to accommodate the anticipated diverse customer base of both large and small businesses in their distribution network. Additionally, the distributor needed to ensure the lender had confidence in their management team and could expand the credit facility as the business grew.
