First established in 1960 by Stan and Curly Watson and John Brown - Curly's brother-in-law - the enterprise began small, but its reputation for selling delicious home-baked breads and pastries along with the finest cuts of beef, pork and lamb saw it grow and the introduction of its now famous pork pies further boosted growth. In the early 1970s, Stan & Curly bought out John but kept the Watson & Brown name and youngest son Peter came on board, followed by eldest Richard. In the mid- 1990s the brothers took over ownership of the company after their parents retired. Watson & Brown now offers a full delicatessen with premium home-cooked meats, pies, pasties and sausage rolls, a world cheese counter, olives, a fresh fruit and vegetable section and a fresh, home-made hot and cold sandwich and panini counter selling anything from bacon and sausage cobs to hot roast pork with stuffing, apple sauce and crackling. The company also offers bespoke outside catering. The company continues to grow, while always looking to stay true to its roots. Said Richard: “Over the last 60 years we have seen 90% of small independent food shops disappear from Whittington Moor whilst we have gone from strength to strength. We feel we have been able to achieve this because of our ability to effectively and consistently produce our own products on our premises, which gives us not only more control over what we sell but the knowledge that our goods will be of the highest quality.” 20
