Canteen Vending

OUR STORY
Founded in Chattanooga in 1993, Five Star Food Service has since grown into one of the largest on-site food and beverage solution providers to employers and other commercial, institutional, and educational locations in the United States. In 2008, the company restructured and became a franchise of Canteen Vending, creating the framework of our contiguous footprint across the Southeast, including Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama. A series of strategic acquisitions has since expanded our service area significantly. In 2011, a focus on innovation and the emergence of the micro market concept would prove to be a game changer for Five Star and soon revolutionize the vending industry. Early adoption of micro markets positioned Five Star as industry leaders and has spurred unprecedented growth and company scale.

Today, our operation includes a seamless network of 14 branch and distribution locations, a fresh food culinary center, and an equipment refurbishment center. Five Star employs over 1,000 people which staff over 300 vending service routes, 600 micro-markets, 13 office coffee routes, 36 cafeterias, and numerous support functions. Five Star Food Service is privately held by PNC Riverarch Capital.
