It all began when Robert L. Bolton and Wife Edith Bolton purchased "Gary's Donut Dinette" in 1969. The name was changed to "Bob & Edith's Diner" and with the help of their four children a new family business was launched that has continued to prosper to this day. The diner's appearance stayed unchanged for many years. in 1982, with the business steadily growing, Bob expanded from a 10 stool counter to 5 stools and 7 booths. Bob expanded again in 1987 to what you see today. Along with the physical appearance, there have been many changes in ownership, always staying within the family.
