Some say the first diner was developed by Jerry O’Mahony (1890-1969) of Bayonne, NJ. His company, the Jerry O’Mahony Diner Co. produced 2,000 pre-fabricated diners from 1917-1952. Others credit Philip Duprey and Irving Stoddard of Worcester, MA who established the Worcester Lunch Car Co. and delivered the first lunch cars along the Eastern seaboard in 1906. No matter the genesis or whether they are prefab structures, diners are defined today as restaurants serving a wide range of food in a casual atmosphere, usually featuring a counter; many serve late into the night. In Florida, some diners serve just breakfast and lunch.
