In 1917, the Jerry O’Mahony Diner Firm in Novel Jersey started manufacturing roadside diners. The lengthy and narrow prefabricated structures were trucked on railroad flatcars to assorted areas across the United States, and were repeatedly harassed with the mutter railroad rolling stock that they resembled.

Franks Diner has been serving meals ever since, making it the oldest consistently-running lunch-automobile diner in the United States.
