Shortly after Arturo returned to Ybor City, he courted and married Cristina Trujillo. They made their first home together on the corner of 14th Street and 20th Avenue in Ybor City, Florida. Then in 1931, the Fuente family became a family of three with the birth of Arturo Oscar Fuente, Carlos and Cristina’s first child. Little did Arturo Sr. know, that in 1935 with the birth of their second son, Carlos Arturo Fuente, his dream of producing fine cigars would grow to become a global dynasty. By 1940, Arturo Sr. was making cigars with his family in the back of his home. Once Carlos and Arturo Oscar became school aged‚ their homework included rolling 50 cigars each, every day after school.
