Bob Mangiafico To Retire From Canteen Vending Services Inc. After 48 Years

After 48 years, Canteen Regional Vice President Bob Mangiafico will retire on April 23, 2012.


Mangiafico joined Canteen in Hartford, Conn., in 1964. He held a variety of positions, beginning as a mechanic and later moving on to route driver. His most recent role with the company is regional vice president for the Carolinas-Virginia Division.

I have never met anyone more dedicated, loyal, with such a great attitude.”

Throughout his career, Mangiafico’s achievements have been recognized, once as a regional director of the year and on several occasions as a Be-A-Star award winner, Canteen’s employee recognition program.
