J.C. Newman Cigar Company was established in 1895 and is the oldest family-owned premium cigar maker in the United States.[1] It was founded in Cleveland, Ohio by Julius Caeser Newman, a Hungarian immigrant. The business relocated to a historic 1910 cigar factory (Regensburg cigar factory) in the Cigar City of Ybor City, Florida in 1954. The family business is now in its fourth generation.
