Valentine Diners were manufactured in Wichita, Kansas and were constructed as eight-to-ten-seat restaurants that one or two people could operate.

Valentines could be found along major highways to attract travelers, in industrial areas to attract workers, and in small towns where they might be one of the only restaurants available. Today many Valentine diners are still open across the country.
