Our History

Working on Machine-old (cropped)Gallins Vending Company started in Winston-Salem, North Carolina in 1948.  As we listened to customers and learned more about their workplace snacking and dining needs, we expanded our services to satisfy the growing demands of a population on the go.  We grew based on our commitment to offering superior freshness, cleanliness, unsurpassed service, and an understanding of an ever-changing American culture.  In 2004, we changed our name and the scope of our business to better satisfy the American appetite. Today, as Gallins Foods, we continue to expand and create new concepts in the food service industry.

We are proud to have a name recognized throughout North Carolina, but we have never lost sight of our local roots, and we remain a family-owned company.  Here’s a glimpse of how our company has grown and changed to arrive where we are today:
