This morning the Padron family sent out an email from Jose O. Padron who started selling cigars in 1964 and celebrated his 90th birthday on Friday…
Dear Friends and Customers of Padrón Cigars,
On Friday, June 10th, I celebrated my 90th birthday. I would like to thank all of you for taking the time to write and wish me a Happy Birthday and to express your satisfaction with our products. I consider Padrón smokers to be the most demanding consumers in the marketplace. I am honored and proud that you are an important part of the history of our company founded in 1964 selling 200 cigars a day. Today that number stands at over 183 million cigars sold with representation in 73 countries.
I would also like to thank you for your continued loyalty and support of the Padrón Family and the products we take such pride in producing. I look forward to many more years of memorable moments for all of us while smoking fine Padrón cigars.
José O. Padrón
