Social Smoke, based in Arlington, Texas, is a manufacturer of hookah pipes, accessories, and tobacco.
At the beginning of 2010 Social Smoke introduced its very own line of hookah tobacco named Social Smoke. It is produced in their factory in Arlington. Social Smoke flavors are characterized by their lack of dyes, colors, or preservatives as well as smooth smoke, and long-lasting flavors. They are now competing with other premium brands such as Starbuzz and Fantasia.
Social Smoke was founded in September 2002, but it wasn’t until its website went live in October 2003 that it considers itself officially open for business. After its launch as an online retail website, Social Smoke quickly moved into wholesaling in the spring of 2004 and attended its first trade show during the summer of 2004.
Throughout the end of 2004 and 2005 Social Smoke continued growing its retail and wholesale operations. During 2006 the first products designed by and produced for Social Smoke were imported.
It was during the 2004-2007 period that Social Smoke experienced such explosive growth that it was #422 on INC magazine’s 2008 INC 500 list. This was followed by coverage by CNN and Fortune Small Business magazine in August 2009.
