Manchester, NH – The Red Arrow Diner recently took a much-needed break to celebrate its staff members. All four locations in Concord, Londonderry, Manchester, and Nashua closed for the entire day so employees and their guests could attend a company-wide staff appreciation barbeque.

Red Arrow Diner recognized two employees with 20+ years of service. From L to R: Elaine Boule (27 years); Carol Lawrence, Co-Owner and President; Dave Carter (29 years); Amanda Wihby, Co-Owner & Chief Operations Officer.

Employees celebrating milestones with the company – including 20+, 15, 10, and five-year anniversaries – were specially recognized. The five-hour event was the first annual employee appreciation for the Red Arrow Diner and featured food, beverages, and activities, such as a cornhole tournament, sumo suits, dunk tank and more. In addition, management raffled off $5,000.00 in $100 increments to present employees.

“Let’s be honest – the past 18 months have been brutal and not the roller coaster ride any of us could have anticipated – or ever wished for. But we couldn’t have made it through without the support each of you have given us,” said Carol Lawrence, Co-Owner and President, Red Arrow Diner, during remarks to the employees. “Your flexibility and willingness to pivot throughout every challenge COVID-19 has thrown our way have made us able to stay open and successful. You are a testament to what the Red Arrow Diner stands for: excellent customer service, fabulous food, and lifelong friendships.”

Planning has already begun for next year’s employee appreciation event, which will be held during the Red Arrow Diner’s 100th year of operation. For more information about the Red Arrow, visit
