We had the good fortune of connecting with Erick and Cissy Jones and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Erick and Cissy, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Before we opened the store, I was working in the oil and gas industry which required a large amount of travel and was keeping me away from the wife and kids. So we wanted an Avenue that would allow us to still make money and also allow for family time.

What should our readers know about your business?
Our Vape shop is like no other in the industry because we have our own flavor lab and create our own unique flavors that aren’t your traditional corporate brands. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and engagement! We also begin a Sneaker culture influenced clothing brand in 2019 called $neaker Enthusiast clothing which we are working to make a culture mainstay!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We would visit camp Houston for some good food, drinks, and music. Pappadeaux seafood kitchen is always a must when in Houston. On a nice warm day you want to visit the red wagon for burgers and snocones which are some of the best in the city. If it’s basketball season would visit the Toyota center and take in a Rockets game. We have so many spots in the city this is just a few places I can think of.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Our customers deserve the biggest credit for our story! Without them we have no story they have been here with us from the beginning and continue you ride with us through the ups and downs!
