Calypso Cigars was founded on the same premise that I use for my smoking taste – it needs to be good, and I want great value. We figure our customers have the same goals and we operate our premium cigar, pipe and pipe tobacco business accordingly.
My name is Matt Bedosky. My wife, Mary, and I founded Calypso Products as an on-line wholesaler of cigars and accessories. We expanded several times since and added a brick and mortar operation. Two elements have always been the key to our success:
After spending more than 35 years in telecommunications and engineering, I started Calypso Cigars in 2001. We launched our first retail site in 2003 with Little Havana Cigars website to provide unique, well-priced accessories to cigar lovers everywhere. We expanded rapidly and in 2005 leased retail space in Richardson, Texas, at a site previously used by a Cuban expatriate for his cigar factory.
In 2006, we established our line of Little Havana Cigars, a high value, well-made line of cigars in three wrapper selections and a multitude of sizes. We continued to establish relationships with the larger manufacturers as well as the “boutique” makers of choice, small batch cigars.
In 2007, we leased additional space and opened our cigar lounge adjacent to the original retail store. We call the lounge “Club Calypso”. The Club Calypso lounge transports you away from the cares of the day to a place where you can enjoy a great smoke, a drink and good conversation. We also have big TVs, WiFi, and great music.
As I said before, I have always been keen on satisfaction with everything I smoke. At the same time, I appreciate a good value. Two ways I try to help my customers are by stocking a constantly updated and huge inventory in our humidor and offering you the option to “build a box” in which you build your own selection. I have learned from experience that buying cigars by the box will eventually create boredom. I’m happy to help you choose an assortment of cigars and with it you will receive the customary box discount.
As for selection, manufacturers are constantly introducing new products. We are committed to staying current with the new products, but also maintaining value by keeping an inventory of the best, tried-and-true products in the industry. The Calypso humidor selections reflect our desire to deliver what you want while providing the opportunity to try new choices.
Our philosophy is to operate an honest business, ensure complete purchase satisfaction and build a bond of trust and confidence with every customer. Try us in person or on-line. We’re here to help!
