What are some features that make your business unique?
We feel what makes our company unique is that we are a small family-owned business focusing on personal service and quality products to our cherished customers.
Give a brief history of your business:
Our company was started in August 1978 by Patty Watson and the late David L. Watson. We started by purchasing the DX/Sunoco distributorship. Two years later the Gulf Corporation was purchased. The American Oil Co. was sold at which time we added to our company. In 1996, the Brownfiels decided to retire and sell Brownfiels Oil Co, the Exxon distributorship, which we also purchased. At that time, our son Chad joined the company to help with the acquisition. In 2017 Chase Watson, the 3rd generation, came on board to help with the company.
We have been blessed to have 3 generations working to provide the fuel needs of farmers and aerial applicators in Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, and Mississippi.
What do you see for the future of your business?
Our goal at Watson Oil is to continue the family, service-oriented business practices in this ever-changing corporate world. We also want to provide quality products for the next generations to come! God bless the American Farmer and Aerial applicators.
