Boulder-based Smoker Friendly is America's largest cigarette and tobacco store retailer. It designed the Smoker Friendly Authorized Dealer Program for existing retail tobacco store and convenience store operators who wish to market a competitively priced private-label product within an exclusive protected territory. This program is for the tobacco retailer who wants the advantages of a private label; more interaction with other tobacco retailers including information and idea sharing; clout with manufacturers; and the greater synergies that a nationally known private-label brand like Smoker Friendly provides.

Currently there are more than 800 stores across the United States with The SF Private-Label Tobacco Family.
