About The Guest:

Torch Cigar Bar was founded by husband and wife couple, Jon and Kelly Harrington. Mr. Harrington was in the online marketing space for 10 years. He ran a successful consulting business for the last seven years. It is with great energy that he brings his attention to detail to Torch Cigar Bar.

Newly married in 2014, the Harrington team wanted to branch out and create something wonderful for their new family. He asked some friends about their thoughts and one friend’s advice stuck, and that advice was that “a cigar bar is the play.” After studying the trends of restaurants and bars, they concluded that a cigar bar was a wise strategic move. Torch Cigar Bar was conceived.

Mr. Harrington sold his book of business in May of 2015. He has remained true to his brokering roots by reaching out to some of the biggest players in the cigar industry. These recognizable names have been more than accommodating in helping out the creation process of Torch Cigar Bar. And Mrs. Harrington’s experience in the IT world for the last 20 years brings a successful track record in complex problem-solving and her own brand of creativity. All of that helps drive Torch Cigar Bar to be the most alluring destination in Phoenix.
