The Cumming Cigar Company is a local company in Cumming, Georgia. It is a place to come sit and relax without any of today’s pressures and to feel what it was like when it was an old service station. It is a laid-back environment where the staff is friendly and knowledgeable with true southern hospitality. This building evokes everything about relationships, hard work, and hours of laughter and is a way to preserve the history and character of the building. It makes a great laidback cigar shop that will serve our community well. Owners Eric Bennett, Carter Patterson, and Brian Richey started this business in hopes that the community will take a moment to step back in time with them as they preserve our history and share one of Yesterday’s Hangouts.
As one of Cumming’s oldest remaining buildings there is limited opportunity for continued preservation. It is important to bring our community's remaining historic spaces up to today’s standards but maintain the charm and character of Yesterday’s hangout. It is important for our children to be proud of their hometown and for all of the community to experience a little piece of the past. The new construction and extensive building that has taken place since the building was a functioning service station, speaks to our progress and we hope to continue that tradition while also preserving our history.
