Best Local Homegrown Web-Based Business You've Never Heard Of

Hookah & Shisha Central

If a present-day Alice in Wonderland caterpillar were shopping for his pipe of choice, he'd probably crawl on to Hookah-Shisha.com. In less than 10 years, the company has grown from the depths of a dorm room into a commercial success, with two warehouses in Southeast Austin and a factory in Jordan, offering more than 100 styles and combinations of hookahs. Started by brothers and then students Ronnie and Sami Romman, Hookah & Shisha Central premiered the online selling of hookahs. The brothers also created an original brand of flavored tobacco – our favorite is a combination of peach, mango, and mint. Accessories range from charcoals and replacement hoses to battery-powered glow balls that light up when the water bubbles. Feeling adventurous? Try their new arrival – the Sultan, a 7-foot hookah with lighted glass panels.
