Jeff is the President and founder of Corona Cigar Company, an Orlando based chain of premium cigar superstores & cigar bars. Founded in 1996, Corona Cigar has grown to become one of America's leading Brick & Mortar, Mail Order and Internet retailers of premium cigars.
After nearly being taxed out of business in 2007 by the federal government's proposed $10 per cigar SCHIP cigar tax, Mr. Borysiewicz co-founded Cigar Rights of America so that every day cigar enthusiasts could have a unified voice to protect their freedom to enjoy cigars.
Mr. Borysiewicz volunteered his time and served as the Chairman of the Board for CRA and served on the International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers Association's Legislative Committee and help spearhead the effort to have congress exempt premium cigars from FDA regulations. He is also a past Vice President of the CRA and a former Board Member of the IPCPR.
In 2013, Mr. Borysiewicz revived the historic tradition of growing premium cigar tobacco in the state of Florida at his Florida Sun Grown farm in Clermont. His prized FSG tobacco is used in Limited Edition cigars produced at Drew Estate, Davidoff, J.C. Newman and Casa Fernandez.
Mr. Borysiewicz is a graduate of the University of Central's College of Business, a Sigma Chi Alumni, a member of National Association of Tobacco Outlets, several Chambers of Commerce and a member of the Orange County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
