Miami, Florida-based Sunfest Herbs is all set to move into the former General Motors plant in Ontario.

Mayor Larry Collins happily hosted a news conference before more than forty people Tuesday afternoon to announce the organic herbs company had signed a letter of intent to be the first tenant in Ontario Business Park. 

Sunfest CEO Clifford Rosen (pictured) says he plans to employ up to 150 people in a variety of positions with a range of pay.  Although he says they won't be minimum wage jobs. 

The Adler Group owns the 266-acre property, and it will take the development company close to a year to prepare it for Sunfest to move in. 

CEO Michael Adler says he's working with a second possible tenant, and hopes to make an announcement in a few weeks.
