Twenty Manteca residents and workers, including farmers, pensioners, immigrants, small business owners, and blue-collar and white-collar workers, first contributed to the idea. 

The General Plan Advisory Committee consisted of 20 individuals, including 15 regular members and 5 alternates. 

Coppola joined the eight-person board that oversaw Delicato Vineyards, which, according to property records, had a $120 million mortgage on the Manteca winery in 2020 that was ostensibly used to finance expansions and purchases. 

In 2021, Delicato Vineyards acquired the Francis Coppola Winery located in Sonoma County. 

As a condition of the agreement, Coppola obtained ownership of Delicato. He became a Delicato board member as well.
