Presidential Hopeful Jason Palmer Has Lunch at Red Arrow Diner

Democratic Presidential candidate Jason Palmer recently visited New Hampshire and enjoyed lunch at the iconic Red Arrow Diner in Manchester, NH. The visit turned out to be more than a quick stop – it became a friendly exchange with Red Arrow Diner Co-Owner Amanda Wihby.

As Jason Palmer sat down for lunch at Red Arrow Diner, he engaged in meaningful conversation with Amanda Wihby, discussing various topics related to the diner and the challenges our team faces. Palmer comes from a restaurant background himself, so he found it easy to find common ground.

During their chat, Amanda Wihby revealed that Red Arrow Diner has plans to return to 24-hour service for all our locations. Currently, only the Manchester diner operates around the clock. The main obstacle to reopening 24-hours in ConcordLondonderry, and Nashua is finding enough of a reliable workforce to support operations. Amanda expressed hope that a solution could be found, perhaps through the intervention of a forward-thinking politician who can address the workforce challenges faced by businesses like the Red Arrow Diner.

The ever-optimistic Co-Owner George Lawrence has a saying that “If you don’t grow, you don’t go,” a phrase that the Red Arrow Diner team embraces to recognize the importance of progress and adaptability in the restaurant industry.

Not only did Jason Palmer engage in a thoughtful discussion during his visit, but he also indulged in a Red Arrow Diner classic. For his lunch, Palmer ordered a Reuben sandwich with a side of coleslaw, savoring the flavors that have made Red Arrow Diner a beloved spot for locals and presidential candidates alike.
