Watson receipt paper

Our History

A background in restaurant ownership and experience in POS sales and customer support was the perfect combination to start Watson Distributing. After opening over 200 restaurants in the Western United States, it became clear there was a need for an independent company to provide cards, paper and cartridges. The paper was never delivered with the computer! No one even thought about it until it was time to open and then it was an emergency to find some fast. We opened our doors in 1986 and success was immediate. We teamed up with some of the POS companies and made sure supplies were at the location when required. We are eternally grateful to our clients for their vendor loyalty and referrals over the years.
