about sparks iconIn 1974, Mike Cowan began selling cash registers out of the back of the family station wagon in Salt Lake City, Utah. Cowan’s Retail Systems grew and prospered out of those humble beginnings.

With Mike’s passing, his son Jason took over operations in 2001.

Cowan’s Retail Systems was re-branded as Cowans Restaurant Solutions in 2011 to focus on our strengths in the restaurant market. In 2013, with the acquisition of the Boise and Spokane markets, Cowans became Spark Solutions Group.

In our 40+ years of continuous operations, we’ve dedicated ourselves to food service technology. We’ve been part of thousands of restaurant grand openings and get to enjoy hundreds more each year by providing the most current Point of Sale offerings as well as credit card processing services for restaurant, retail and office locations.

Spark Solutions Group emphasizes customer support and specializes in providing our customers with staff that has extensive restaurant and POS technology experience. We like our employees to be able to speak “restaurant.”
