In 1892, Robert Wise opened a small cigar shop and factory on this site. Shortly there after, Mr. Wise took a business partner, Ernest Burns.

During peak times, the small factory was capable of producing as many as one thousand cigars a day. At 10 cents a piece, they were "the best cigars in the market for the price." The cigars and factory were named after General Maximo Gomez, who led Cuba in their fight to gain independence from Spain.
