Cigar Manufacturing Business Proposal

[Company Name] is a cigar manufacturing company that makes high-quality, branded cigars that are afforded by the elite class only. I traveled across the country to learn the art of making cigars as people in my area are very fond of cigars, but they are all working, middle-class people and cannot afford such branded items.

The process of cigar making is not classified but the contents of it are concealed and are only known to the owners. After working for 4 years, I have gained knowledge of making good, economical cigars and the vendors who can supply required raw materials.

These cigars are purchased by high-end clients that have an excellent taste in cigars and can also afford them i.e., celebrities, businessmen, industrialists, and millionaires. They are also used for gifting to individuals with great taste. In addition to individual customers, these cigars are purchased by hotel owners, bars, and nightclubs to entertain their guests.

Introduction

Cigars are tobacco leaves filled with a combination of different ingredients including tobacco. It is termed as the finest way to enjoy tobacco. They are available in different sizes and shapes but the most commonly used cigars are rounded shapes with parallel sides and are 5-6 inches long. Cigars are longer than cigarettes and also last longer. Native Cubans initiated the process of rolling cigars and from there crude cigars find their way to Spain and Europe. Cigars are a luxury because they are expensive due to heavy import duties.

Cigars are also very expensive because of their hand-made synthesis from start. They are now produced all around the world and the manufacturing process is half-manual and half mechanic, but the finest cigars are still made in Cuba and are all hand-made. Raw materials for cigars are not unique as they constitute lead of tobacco plant, which is found in diverse climates but the produce of Cuba and Jamaica are the best.

These cigars are made by using three types of tobacco leaves and all serve a different purpose in the manufacturing process. Small, broken leaves are used as fillers of the cigar, complete leaves are used as an inner wrapper of the cigar which is also known as a binder.

The appearance of the binder is secondary as it is then wrapped in the primary, finest leaf of tobacco which completes the appearance of the cigar. Cigars are closed through a tasteless gum that binds the ends.

Manufacturing Cuban cigars can be very expensive therefore, I plan on providing good quality cigars by selling hand-made cigars and not using any machine. Cuban cigars can also be prepared by using filler and binder from another region which is cheap and the outer wrapper is the leaf from Cuba.
