Canteen of Coastal California, Inc BBB Business Review



Canteen of Coastal California is perfectly sized to serve the break room needs of Southern California, including Central Coast and Bakersfield. We are a local company providing jobs and support in the community. Being local helps us provide quick responses when service is needed and personalized solutions for our customers.

As part of Canteen, we are also backed by a large corporation, which provides access to the best products and latest equipment. Our customers benefit thanks to wireless technology, mobile payments, a mobile vending app, and the use of credit card payments. We have scalable micro-market solutions that can create a mini store in any break room for companies both large and small.

Our journey from
yesterday to today

In 1951 our founder, Gerald A. Scott, affectionately known as “Scotty,” answered an ad in the newspaper for a route driver position and was hired by Canteen Corporation at their Los Angeles headquarters.  His route consisted of vending machines with 5-cent candy bars, 1-cent sticks of gum and 1-cent handfuls of peanuts.  After regular promotions through the years he became General Manager of the entire northern California Bay Area in 1965.  In 1972 an opportunity to purchase a Canteen Franchise became available in Ventura County. With the help and support of his wife Dorothy, Canteen of Coastal California was born. With 13 accounts and a warehouse in half of a 2 car garage the Scott family business began.  Now with four generations working in the business,  today we proudly serve customers in 4 counties, with facilities in Grover Beach, Bakersfield and our corporate office in Oxnard, California. Still family run and owned, we take pride in having a strong customer service culture and believe that the customer always comes first. Our core values center around family, integrity, hard work and giving back to the community. We genuinely care about our customers and strive to constantly improve and change to be the best.  We welcome you to our family.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.” – Aristotle

Community champions

At Canteen of Coastal California, we know the importance of giving back to the communities we serve.

Ventura Sheriff K9 Foundation

The K9 unit in Ventura County is just one of the many organizations we are proud to support. Funded entirely by private donations, this exceptional team of dogs and law enforcement handlers work tirelessly to serve and protect our Southern California communities. Searching for missing people, getting into tight places, and sniffing out narcotics are just some of the ways these canines contribute to our safety.

Creating a positive future with kidSTREAM

We are thrilled to be a supporter of kidSTREAM, a children’s museum in the works. Its mission is to provide an engaging environment that inspires and empowers kids. By exploring and playing in the kidSTREAM museum, children will develop positive life skills such as critical thinking, innovation, and the benefits of being a life long learner. In 2021, kidSTREAM plans to break ground.

We believe that all businesses should show support for the organizations that benefit the health and prosperity of the area in which they operate. Canteen of Coastal California is proud to do just that here in Southern California, supporting many local non-profit groups that create a brighter future.
