There’s great news for cigar lovers in the DFW area: the torch has been passed, and a new era of stogie enjoyment is at hand. Renegade Cigars, a prime fixture among local tobacco enthusiasts, is under new ownership – and we’d like to invite all of you to come down, say hello, and give us your invaluable input into how we can make it an even better experience for you.
For those of you who have come to think of Renegade Cigars as your home away from home, rest assured that everything you love about the place – including the same relaxed atmosphere and many of the existing staff – will remain. But in the spirit of bringing a new energy to the place, we’ll also be ramping up on the number of events you’ll be able to participate in. This includes the launch of our new BYOB Padron Happy Hour, Single Malt Scotch night, and lots more. We’ll also be offering loyalty discounts to our customers, just so you don’t forget how much your business is valued and appreciated.
Here are a few words about the new faces you’ll be seeing at Renegade Cigars and Lounge:
Brandon Hayes, the new owner, is no stranger to delivering on world class service with distinctly neighborly appeal. As founder and CEO of Valor Janitorial, he’s been delivering top-notch service to numerous DFW businesses since 2006. Now he’s bringing that same level of service, along with his personal appreciation for fine cigars and even finer drinks, to Renegade.
“What I love most about a good cigar shop and lounge,” Hayes said, “is that all walks of life can share in a mutual appreciation and find common ground – from doctors to plumbers to lawyers and construction workers. My vision is to make Renegade a relaxing place for everyone who appreciates the cigar culture. When that happens, it can really be magical.”
Jon Tolleson, who will assume management duties, has five years of experience in the cigar industry and has had great success working in one of the top cigar stores in Texas. In his time in the business, he’s built strong relationships with cigar reps throughout the metropolitan region, making him the perfect person to help create an ideal, comfortable safe haven for cigar smokers.
Last but not least, we’d like to give a shout-out and best wishes to former Renegade Cigars owners Pat and Steve, who sail into that proverbial retirement sunset no doubt with cigars in hand, confident in knowing their establishment has been passed on to capable hands. Come by and see us. We look forward to shaking your hand and enjoying a fine smoke.
