Excellent choice for an up-front view of a leading snack food company's production and shipping facilities. See potatoes processed into several flavors and package sizes of chips from the washer and peeler, through the fryer, the flavoring areas, and packaging and on into the warehouse. Plus, you geta free bag of chips! There's also a slide show depicting the history... More

Great time for both the kids and parents. Self guided tour but very informative. Takes about 30 minutes. Check out the outlet store too!

We stopped on a bit of a lark, to break up the last few hours of a road trip, and wow! So worth doing! Once in and up the stairs, there were some displays & memorabilia, as well as a photo-op Utz girl cutout, explained to us by the friendly and enthusiastic Utz tour guy. He then sent us off... More

We've done this tour three times now, once a year. It is so cool to watch raw potatoes come in via truck and be transformed into perfect potato chips. It is also neat to learn the history of the chip company, from its humble beginnings - an American success story! Because the tour is self-guided, you can spend as much... More

We had so much fun touring the Utz factory. Best part was it was free and you got a free bag of chips. It was cool watching the chips being made and bagged. We are definitely glad we took the time to stop for this. Afterwards we took advantage of the coupon at the outlet store. Can't believe what good... More

The tour is free and self guided. As a guest, you walk a hallway that parallels the potato chip production line. Your hallway is actually about 20 feet above the action with plenty of windows to see everything. There are stations along the way that you push a button and hear a description of what you are seeing. At the... More

We actually found the factory outlet store first, spent about $15 there on really excellent products. Loads of items and many flavors of each item, it seems. The prices are very reasonable and we were happy. Vern got a 10% discount for being a Veteran (Tuesday is discount day also). Anyway, they told us about the self guided tours at... More

Some of my best vacation memories when I was young were factory tours where you were really in the factory watching things happening. At Utz you are right above the factory floor watching through glass windows. OMG - I wanted to dive into those potato chip bins... it looked so good and fresh. In a matter of minutes you get... More
