Canteen Vending History

Canteen is the only national vending operating company, and the largest. Our branch network includes over 200 company and franchise locations servicing locations in 48 states.

We are also a company with over 80 years of experience to draw upon.
Canteen’s track record of innovation began in 1929. Company founder Nathaniel Leverone built his business strategy around three timeless principles: integrity, customer focus and innovation.

We continue this great tradition by listening to our customers and continually refining the vending experience with new quality initiatives that provide the highest levels of customer satisfaction.
