SARASOTA, Fla. —Frontier Brands LLC has appointed Acosta as the exclusive national broker for Frontier Cigars.
Sarasota, Fla.-based Frontier sells Frontier Cheroots and Frontier XL in the convenience-store channel. Both are manufactured in the company’s Dominican Republic factory. Cigars are made with premium quality Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco filler wrapped in lush Pennsylvania broadleaf and Ecuadorian Connecticut wrappers, according to the company. They come in a variety of blends like Honey, Russian Cram and Sweet Aromatic.
“With Acosta’s preeminence in the c-store segment, I believe the addition of Acosta as our exclusive broker is the perfect alignment in our growth objectives,” said Ryan Frailing, COO of Frontier. “Thus far, offering the finest leaf and highest quality cigars at excellent price points have been the keys to distinguishing our products in the marketplace. Now, Acosta affords us the opportunity to truly be a national brand.”
Acosta, Jacksonville, Fla., is a sales and marketing company that works with other retail brands found in c-store, value, club and large retail channels in the United States and Canada.
“We are thrilled to represent Frontier Cigars throughout our network,” Robert Smith, Acosta’s vice president for c-store operations, said. “Our research shows a continued growth pattern in mass-market cigars offered through the convenience channel. We believe Frontier offers the highest quality cigars in the mass-marketplace. This is consistent with our corporate philosophy to market only the best brands in a product category.”
