My name is Arnold Roland and I am the Director of Operations at the Cigar Factory Outlet. I have been in this role since 2017. I manage all aspects of the business for the owner, Brian Shapiro. I am born, raised, and currently live in Norwalk, CT. I graduated with my Bachelors in Business Administration in 2012, and earned my Masters in Business Administration (MBA) in 2013 from Southern New Hampshire University. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, hanging out at the beach, and going to the South Norwalk Boat Club.
The Cigar Factory Outlet is a family owned/operated business since 1932 and located in South Norwalk, CT since 1997. We are the largest Oliva Cigar Retailer in the country. Although we specialize in Oliva Cigars, we have access to all premium cigar brands as well.
Enjoy a fine cigar and single malt scotch at the only cigar bar in Fairfield County and one of two in the state of Connecticut. We also have a hand roller on site rolling some of the finest Nicaraguan tobacco grown today. The space has a plush leather furnishings and soft red walls all creating a warm and welcoming environment with a state of the art ventilation system and flat screen TVs. The whole store is a walk-in humidor where smoking is permitted anywhere. We stress a work-free smoke zone here for our customers at the Cigar Factory Outlet.
