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.
