I cannot tell you how much fun this is! And it's FREE! My 11 year old loved it as did my husband and 67 year old mother in law! The employees waved up to us and learning about the chip making process was fun. Also, who doesn't love a free bag of chips at the end. My 11 year old... More

I took a friend and our combined 4 children who were aged 3-9 years old last week from Baltimore. It was about a 45-50 minute ride and wouldn't you know it... we followed an Utz truck there! Due to the age of the kids, we didn't really get a chance to stop and listen, watch or read everything that was... More

A self guided tour overlooking the factory floor. Watched the production of chips from potato to chip. Fun to watch how the chips are flavored, bagged and boxed. While watching the action below on the factory floor many of the workers would glance up and wave. We were surprised by their friendliness and thought they must really enjoy their job... More

It's been a long time since I've been on the tour but I always have enjoyed it. You get to see how many different bags of chips they do before you walk in. Get to see the potatoes on the line from the peeling to the bagging process. When you get to the end of the tour & see all... More

You get to see the real factory and how it works. It is great for kids and adults alike. The best part.... It's free!

We were there on a Friday, so no tours were being run. Not sure why they don't run them on Fri and Saturday. They could bring you through the plant to show the lines at least. The store was great. It is better than Snyder's store, but the prices were not quite as low. Still a bargain though. They were... More

We drove from Gettysburg to the factory only to find it does not do tours on Fridays. BE WARNED. But did goto outlet which was a decent consolation.

Stopped here because I am an UTZ lover. Their potato chips are the best in my book. This is a nice, free, self guided tour. At the end of the tour, you get a free fresh bag of chips and directions to the factory store which is a few blocks away. A good way to get your potato chip fix.

Recently went on the UTZ tour. Kids (9 years old) had a good time! It was really interesting and you could see the process from start to finish. Self guided tour, so you can take as much time or as little time as you want. Free to take the tour and free chips at the end. All the employees were... More

This is a free, self guided tour that takes you through the potato chip making process. It starts with the unloading of potatoes from the truck and shows every step of the way....washing, peeling, slicing, rinsing, frying, seasoning, quality control, packaging and storage. It's not fancy but it is very informative and interesting. It takes anywhere for 20 to 30... More
