Monterey Park CA takes its name from old maps that called the area Monterey Hills. This name in turn probably came from the Monterey Pass Trail, which was used by early settlers to transport mail and goods to and from Los Angeles. Some of the earliest industries in Monterey Park CA were growing flowers and potatoes. Potatoes continued to be notable in Monterey Park’s history with a local entrepreneur allegedly inventing the sealed potato chip bag in 1926. The bags were made of waxed paper sealed shut with an iron. Today food service in Monterey Park CA is much more advanced and so are the rules about commercial kitchens.
