In 1972, after working the vending industry for nearly 10 years, Hal Steuber decided to venture on his own with the creation of Associated Services Company. The coffee company is the exclusive Northern California supplier of Starbucks Flavia, Tully's and Peet's Coffee & Tea. In 1992, the company decided to start bottling water, thus it started Alta Bottled Waters.
