About Us

We help you take the best break possible.

If there’s one thing everyone can agree on, it’s that we all need a break now and then. 

People can’t keep going unless they stop for a moment.  Since we began in 1929, people’s lives have changed. What’s important has changed, and likes have changed too.  One thing has stayed the same, though: good things happen when people take a break.

That’s cemented our purpose – we bring break time to everyone.  We’re not just giving you a quick snack; we’re creating places, moments, and opportunities to connect, making you more productive, more innovative, and a lot happier.  Everyone needs a respite, a little pick-me-up, a moment to refuel, and then quickly get back to what needs to be done. We go beyond convenience by using technology to continually innovate and give people what they want when they want it.

It’s what drives our employees every day.  Each account, from a Fortune 500 company to a small organization, is handled with a customer-first, always friendly approach.  After all, our partners rely on us to keep people happy, revived, and moving forward. Stopping for a delicious, healthy, quick break is something that allows everyone to make the most of their day.

We serve 98 of Fortune 100's

About Compass Group

We’re a proud member of Compass Group North America, the national leader in food service management and support services.  Together, we serve over 10 million meals a day in award-winning restaurants, corporate cafes, hospitals, schools, arenas, museums, and other sites.  So, chances are, if you’ve had a meal or snack while you were away from home, you’ve eaten with us. Together, we’re proud of the many accomplishments we’ve achieved and the incredible team that helped make it possible.

"From one micro market to three, Canteen has grown with us. We can now provide healthy lunch and snack options to our employees where food options are limited near our offices. They remove the burden of break room management from our leadership."
