Development is possible without handouts

Below is the article in reference to the latest IN & OUT Burger location to come to the IE. Highland landed the popular burger chain after 5 years of work, and they used no development funds. Yes if you approach them the right way and prove that thier is nothing but upside to adding thier business to your city GOOD companies will take the measured risks in opening a new location.
Our city officals can’t figure out how to do this without selling off all their utilities and allowing a German Company to steal from the residents.
HIGHLAND – In-N-Out has arrived.After years of waiting, Highland residents now can say they have an In-N-Out Burger.The newest Inland Empire location at 28009 Greenspot Road opened last week.

Mayor Larry McCallon said the arrival of the popular burger chain “is a big deal.” It’s the most common question people had asked, he said, “When is In-N-Out opening?”

McCallon said the quest for In-N-Out began some five years ago when he and other city officials approached the company’s booth at an annual convention of the National Association of Shopping Centers in Las Vegas.

Does anyone from Rialto even know what this is? If not our new council should figure it out.

He also said that no redevelopment funds were used to entice the restaurant to the city.

The restaurant employs about 50 (if these were union jobs our current council would be tripping over themselves to get ours open) and features one drive-through lane plus indoor accommodations for 97.

This location of the Irvine-based chain is led by manager Shauna Myers, an employee of the company for 15 years.

Highland residents were excited to know that the long-awaited restaurant had finally arrived.

Anita Fonnett said, “all my friends are really excited about this.” Her husband, Richard, said he’s been a fan of the chain since at least 1978.

Both said there would be more occasions for enjoying In-N-Out now that the restaurant has opened in their town.

After finishing classes at Redlands East Valley High School on Monday, Steven Taylor, 17, stopped by his hometown’s newest restaurant.

“The animal fries are addicting,” he said.

Paul Todak, 25, of Redlands said he has been eagerly awaiting the opening.

On Monday, he met several family members at the restaurant for lunch, including his sister Katrina Johnston, 34, also a Redlands resident.

“I wish they would open one in Redlands,” Johnston said. Redlands will probably see one in their city before Rialto ever does.
