Brian Motola, director of sales of the Reno, Nevada-based Illusione Cigars, said in a statement that Amendola’s company has created “exceptionally good cigar brands. I feel confident that Amendola Cigars will fit perfectly within the Illusione portfolio of products.”
Amendola launched a small factory and tobacconist shop in Durham, North Carolina in 2011. He started Amendola Family Cigar Co. with business partner Christopher Monacoin in 2017.
