Michael Giberson and Neil Andersen
Michael Giberson and Neil Andersen own A 1 Diner in Gardiner. The diner was built by the Worcester Lunch Car Company in 1946 in Worcester, Massachusetts. It arrived by flatbed truck and was placed on 20-foot-tall stilts above the Cobbosseecontee Stream, where it still sits today. Eddie Heald, its original owner, ordered the diner, and Michael and Neil bought it in 1988 from Michael’s father, Albert. Michael and Neil will celebrate 29 years of ownership in April, making them the diner’s longest running owners.
