Fuentes Breaking Ground On Nicaraguan Factory

Four and a half years—nearly to the day—after Carlos Fuente Jr. announced plans to build a grand factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, his company is about to formally break ground on the site and begin construction. On Thursday, the inauguration of the factory will occur.

“Many years in the works,” Fuente Jr. said to Cigar Aficionado. “The day is finally coming.”

The event will include, according to Fuente Jr., “The whole construction company, government officials and colleagues.”

Fuente Jr. stunned the cigar world on January 18, 2018, when he was a surprise guest at the Nicaraguan cigar festival and announced his plan to create a factory to be called Gran Fabrica de Tabacos La Bella y La Bestia, or “beauty and the beast.”
