Gleaming in the sun are three old diners north of Rockford, Michigan. One diner stands out among them for its historical significance. Rosie’s was used in the famous Bounty paper towel TV commercials with Rosie the waitress saying they are the “quicker picker-upper” The commercials were filmed in this diner in the 70’s when it was the Farmland Diner in Little Ferry, New Jersey.
The diner was trucked to its current location in the 90s. It was a popular diner when it was operational and was featured in Food Networks Diners Drive Inns and Dives. The original owners retired and shortly after the new owners went out of business. It has been sitting empty for years. It is sad to see this historic diner sitting vacant. I hope someday it will be used again or saved as historical landmark.
