Smoke and Hookahs Big Business for New Distribution Company

Share Article

After six months of planning and the investment backing of Jason Standard Corporation, Bahrani Distribution has hookahs and tobacco ready to enter your neighborhood. The company opened their doors a week ago and now are ready to give the public access to their huge inventory, online.

Hookahs (or water pipes) are attracting great interest in the western regions of the world. In recent years, these smoking pipes have found their way into cafes, smoke shops, and ethnic restaurants across the country. With growing popularity, the hookah market has also enjoyed a spike in creative hookah designs, hookah accessories, and hookah tobacco flavors. The options for hookahs and accessories are growing everyday but Aaron Butts, President of Bahrani Distribution Corp., saw a problem with the current hookah retailers.

Aaron, a hookah smoker for his entire adult life, has been watching the hookah market rapidly grow over the last two years. While the hookah

designs and accessories were rapidly growing around the world, Aaron noticed how the availability in North America was not growing with the international advancements. On November 11th of 2005, Aaron explained at the press conference that “It's simply a matter of supply and demand, or in this case, demand. The market was growing so rapidly and no one seemed to have the capacity to keep up with it. That's where Bahrani Distribution Corporation came in. We are more than prepared and willing to keep up and head up this amazing market.”

Aaron Butts proposed his idea for the largest selection of hookahs to Jason Bland around June of 2005. Jason Bland, co-founder and investment

manager of Jason Standard Corp., of Tampa decided to back the Bahrani Distribution project in return for a majority holding in the company. “I’m really excited about Bahrani Distribution.”, Jason said on Friday, “This is a growing market and it is a fairly new market in the U.S. The launch of is going to be great for the growing number of hookah smokers in this country because they finally have access to a variety of unique and traditional hookahs that they would have otherwise had to travel the world to find.”

Jason Standard’s current holdings consist of companies they have bought into. Bahrani Distribution Corp., is the first holding that Jason Standard helped build from the ground up.

The launch of is a great milestone for the new company. They originally were going to launch the distribution program prior to the public web site but decided to focus all resources on the web site so that it would be working for the 2005 holiday shopping season. Bahrani Distribution plans on finalizing their “bulk distribution” program by early December.
