Dietz & Watson --it’s a family thing

We only make products that we would serve proudly to our own family. Our guiding principles, along with some top-secret family recipes, have been passed down for over 80 years and four generations. In the process, our family has grown to incorporate partners, coworkers, deli workers, and consumers throughout the years. We’re grateful to be a part of your communities and for providing the opportunity to be at your table.

our history

1939 was a big year. Gottlieb Dietz met Walter Watson and developed his original German Bratwurst recipe. Four generations and hundreds of recipes later, we still stand by Gottlieb’s unwavering dedication to quality, family and delicious food.
