Canteen Vendor

Canteen Hot Dog and Hamburger Vending Machine

This isn’t a great picture, but it’s all we have on this one. This vending machine with “Canteen” across the top appears to be some sort of a hot food vendor. The graphics on the mirror look to be a hamburger and a hot dog. This is an unusual machine, to say the least. Any information you may have on this would be appreciated.

    I think this vending machine was made by “Automatic Canteen Co. of America”. I found an old vending machine with the word”canteen” across the top. On the backside was a stainless steel plaque with the company information on it. It was found underneath a collapsed cabin high in the mountains of an abandoned ski hill on Vancouver Island, Canada. I took a few pictures, if anyone is interested in the picture please email me robpezzutto@hotmail.com

    Canteen is still the largest vending company in the world.My grandfather worked for them from 1949-1989 and his uncle for 15 years before he started.He said this machine was a nightmare to maintain as was most of the machines they made there self when they owned Rowe.Rowe use to make all kind of vending machines when canteen owned them but by the time canteen sold them they only made change machines and juke boxes.I think thats all they make even today.Canteen now buys all there machines from Crane National who also owns Dixie Narco

    I am in search of a hot food vending machine. I would like to be able to choose the hot foods that are sold…Much like a machine that would vend a product of mine. Soup, Hot sandwhich, items like spegetti, different fettuccine entre’s, foods like that. What machine should I be looking for , where do I find it ?
