Manchester, NH – The owners of the Red Arrow Diner were presented with the Manchester Historic Association Century Club Award during the 30th annual Historic Preservation Awards on September 8 at Manchester Community College.

The Red Arrow Diner was established in 1922 at 61 Lowell Street in Manchester and continues to operate 24 hours a day. It was named a City Landmark in 2000.

“The Red Arrow Diner is an important business that has been part of the Manchester community for 100 years,” said Jeffrey R. Barraclough, Executive Director, Manchester Historic Association. “We are very pleased to recognize this milestone and the role they have played in the history of our city through their Century Club Award.”

Carol Lawrence purchased the Red Arrow Diner in 1987 and now shares ownership with George Lawrence, Vice President, and Amanda Wihby, Chief Operations Officer. They manage approximately 175 employees between the Red Arrow Diner locations in Manchester, Concord, Londonderry, and Nashua.

“While the Red Arrow Diner is known for its homecooked comfort food and baked goods, and for being a ‘must-stop’ location for politicians every election cycle, I truly feel the Red Arrow Diner is most special because of its people,” said Carol Lawrence, Co-Owner and President, Red Arrow Diner, upon accepting the award. “The Red Arrow Diner continues to shape its legacy due to our amazing and valued employees and customers who support us every day.”
