If this company was public would it be a fortune 500?

i have recently viewed a documentary about Swisher Sweet and it was very interesting. I enjoy learning about our cities history and the stories of progression of older businesses here.

Don't know what that is supposed to mean but...
It showed everything from the way the company was started, information about the creators behind the future masterpiece, the initial process of cigar making to the expansions of the warehouse and opening up another warehouse in North or South Carolina, can't remember which one..

Many cigar firms make flavored tips.....It just seems that Swisher is the Coca Cola of Cigars, or should I say, Jacksonvilles Coca Cola. Its just we here so much about CSX, Winn Dixie & Fidelty, but never anything on Swisher....yet Swisher Cigers are everywhere.

This is true. It is sort of like Jacksonville's Coca Cola, they have been around much longer than the other cigar companies and have changed their style, name and producion processes through the years. If they created a facility like the Coke Factory in Atlanta, I would definately be in line for the tour.
