“This has truly been a great partnership and we are delighted that our agreement has been renewed,” says Freedom’s president.
Smoker Friendly International has renewed its exclusive private brand manufacturing agreement with Freedom Smokeless.
Freedom Smokeless is a manufacturer of U.S. made Premium Brand Electronic Cigarettes. Since 2009, Freedom has been manufacturing and distributing the Smoker Friendly branded Electronic Cigarette starter kits, Express Kits, cartridge refills, disposables and accessories to the Smoker Friendly chain.
“Initially, there were several reasons we chose Freedom as our supplier” said Terry Gallagher Jr., president of Smoker Friendly International. “We liked the quality of their product as well as the fact that Freedom does not compete against us on-line. Because of their continued commitment to quality, world class customer service and innovative products, renewing their exclusive agreement for us was a no brainer.”
Stewart and Mary Beth Ruehl of Hickory, N.C., who became Smoker Friendly licensees in 2000 and now run five Smoker Friendly stores, were delighted when they heard the news. “The electronic cigarette display from Freedom is the two most profitable square feet in my store,” Stewart said. Mary Beth added, ” I really appreciate their customer service; they always do what they say they will do and treat our customers as if they were their own.”
“We are pleased that Smoker Friendly chose us to manufacture their products back in 2009,” said Glenn Kassel, Freedom’s president. “This has truly been a great partnership and we are delighted that our agreement has been renewed. The Gallagher’s have created a Team that is like Family, and we are honored to be part of that Family. ”
