Goober’s Diner, arrived to North Lincoln Street in Wilmington, Delaware on Thursday. The two-story diner was delivered by 16 tractor trailers broken up into pieces on each truck.
Goober’s Diner was built as modular buildings in Atlanta, Georgia and has been transported to Delaware where it will reside and operate. The diner will have an old school feel to it, something that is comparable to a diner in the 1950s. Goober’s will serve breakfast all day, as well as the french fries, and meatloaf and such as well. The new establishment will seat 80 customers total and is set to open for business officially, around Labor Day.
Goober’s Diner is owned by a local business owner in Wilmington, who felt there needed to be a great diner in the area.
“So it’s been a project for about two years called Goober’s Diner. It’s owned by a Wilmington gentleman named Vance Kershner. He’s the owner of LabWare,” said Vaughn Hardin, Director of Special Operations for LabWare. “Couple years ago decided he wanted a great place to have breakfast in Wilmington. So we decided we’re going to build a diner.”
