Giant Orange stands, California

Today, when Charles Hathaway and I hit up Dixon, we passed by the old George's Orange stand off of Interstate 80:

It was one of several Giant Oranges in a long-defunct orange stand chain:

There are two others left I know of, one well-known location off of Route 99 in Chowchilla...

and one in Shasta Lake:

Anyone know more about this operation, and if any other giant orange stands are still remaining?

There was one on Foothill Blvd in Fontana left standing and vacant, next to (also vacant) Bono's Italian deli. Since the area had become run down, there was talk about moving the "giant orange" to a new location...not sure what's become of it now.
