Citizens Business Bank Arena recently hosted the only Def Leppard concert in Southern California. We thought it would be interesting to pull a zip code report after the show and WOW we definitely push the needle on visitors to our area. There were 24 states represented at the concert. In fact I ran into a few guests that announced they were from Ontario! I didn’t think much of it since we are in the City of Ontario, but then they said it again and added Canada. Now that’s a fan base – way to rock it Def Leppard, Poison, and Tesla!

Richard Montanez was a janitor at the Frito-Lay plant in Rancho Cucamonga, California.  At a recent graduation ceremony at Citizens Business Bank Arena he shared his story with the graduating class of Chaffey College. Montañez recalled grabbing corn from the elote man. Biting into the corn, with all the fixings, he had his revelation. “That looks like a Cheeto. What if I put chili on a Cheeto?’ ” he said.

He and his wife made chili, and he garnished his Cheetos. Next thing he knows, he’s calling the CEO and pitching his idea. The CEO tells him he’ll see him in two weeks.
