Founded in 2002, Cheyenne International is a tobacco product manufacturer located in North Carolina, the heart of American tobacco country. Our mission is to provide adult tobacco consumers with a diversified portfolio of high-quality brands at a fair price. We build successful partnerships with our retail and wholesale customers while keeping responsibility and compliance at the forefront of everything we do.
Our beginnings were humble. Entering the tobacco business in 2002 had its hurdles but for the four founding partners of Cheyenne, they knew that the industry had several needs. A need for a company that looked out for the wholesalers and retailers. A need for high-quality products at a value price. A need for a voice that could represent the interests of small manufacturers. A need for jobs in an economically depressed region of rural North Carolina. With these needs in mind, they planned to change the game. Each of our founders brought something special to the table and after a long night spent holed up around a hotel table hashing out the details, Cheyenne International was born.
Our philosophies are built around four core pillars of excellence: Partnership, Quality, Compliance and Success. In today's environment, tobacco companies must offer more than just high-quality brands, which is why Cheyenne creates dynamic relationships with the channel. We identify the challenges our retail and wholesale partners face and provide effective strategies and solutions to overcome those challenges. While doing so, we don’t sacrifice quality to ensure that our adult consumers and trade partners always get the best we have to offer. We stand proud of this sentiment along with our strict regulatory compliance and our government interface effort. This charge delivers a high level of representation for our business customers and reiterates that responsible selling and marketing is always top of mind.
We don’t just make products, we craft brand solutions. Every little detail is debated when developing our lines. The obvious things like quality, taste and profitability are standard contemplations, but we dive deeper to ensure that the products will fit consumer needs and deliver what wholesale and retail customers desire as well. With our expert Manufacturing and Quality teams who are always striving for operational excellence, the result is a product that stands above the competition each and every time.
We value our Retailers. Simply put, we consider them our partners rather than just another stop in the supply chain. As liaisons to adult tobacco consumers, the opportunities are unique for each storefront as there is no one-size-fits-all plan. This is where Cheyenne International thrives. By creating progressive, customized and effective strategies for each store, we build the foundations from which a successful brand story can emerge. Our diversified brand portfolio is customized to fit the needs of chain, independent and mom-and-pop convenience stores, tobacco outlets, grocery, dollar and mass merchandise stores.
However, we don’t just stop there. We’re a leader in the advocacy of our industry, which includes Retailers. We are members of several retail-focused industry associations and always have an eye on developing compliant solutions that have a positive impact. Though many regulatory changes fall on the shoulders of Retailers, Cheyenne can help navigate these challenges by providing a simple and straightforward path to success. Get the most from your valuable shelf space with quality brands and no cumbersome contracts.
Wholesalers and Distributors are our gateway to the market and as such, are an integral part of our day-to-day operations. Our company philosophy has always been to support our trade partners. We understand distribution challenges like SKU rationalization, regulatory compliance and compressed margins so our wholesale relationships are centered around crafting customized solutions for those challenges. Each of our distributor customers have unique markets with unique needs and we pride ourselves on being able to present a tailored success story for each of them.
