New Cheap Smokes & Cigars Franchisee - Paul Dabgotra


Jun 02, 2014

Cheap Smokes & Cigars, started in 2009 by Jeff Lawrence, recently welcomed a new franchisee, Paul Dabgotra. The franchise was founded in response to legislation which barred the sale of tobacco products in drug stores. Lawrence, seeing the opportunity to provide customer service and a friendly atmosphere to disenfranchised smokers, created Cheap Smokes & Cigars to fill an immediate need.

Paul Dabgotra found Cheap Smokes & Cigars through the website. A resident of Calgary, Dabgotra's business sense, family values, prior franchise experience, computer skills and friendliness make him an ideal franchisee in the eyes of Lawrence. The franchisor also noted that the candidates Cheap Smokes & Cigars has found through the portal are high quality, and the portal has provided the company with all its new franchisees so far.

The new franchisee also cited when talking about how he found his ideal franchise opportunity. According to Dabgotra, he found the portal when he was looking for information on the Cheap Smokes & Cigars franchise. The interview he read with Jeff Lawrence, hosted on, gave him insight on the opportunity. Although Dabgotra had already owned food service franchises in the past, he was attracted to a tobacco opportunity because of the loyal customer base and the small staff required to run a location.

The Cheap Smokes & Cigars franchise is planning on expansion throughout 2014, including in areas such as Red Deer, WhiteCourt, Cold Lake and Hinton. Check out the portal today for more information on the Cheap Smokes & Cigars opportunity.
