According to the KJ, there is a new owner at Gardiner's A1 Diner.

Aaron Harris, a former A1 employee, has purchased the business from longtime owners Mike Giberson and Neil Andersen.

The A1 was was Harris' first job after he moved to Maine in 2001. His intention was to go to culinary school.  Instead, he went on to get a degree in marketing.  After years of working an office job, he was looking for a change.

We wish him all the best!
