“Good side trip if visiting Pigeon Forge”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

It's free what more can you say plus it's very informative on the history of Bush beans. Just wish we could have found out the secret recipe.

“Great side-of-the-road surprise!”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

After leaving Sevierville/Pigeon Forge, we decided on a scenic route. We came around a curve and found Bush's Factory/Visitor's Center. We were surprised at 2 things: 1. It's Free. 2. It's got about as much stuff in the "museum" part as the Coke visitor's center (Atlanta, GA) has, but that you pay $16 for. Multiple interactive displays, a 30 minute video, FREE family pictures with Duke. And the General Store is not terribly over-priced.

Bottom line: If you are combining Asheville, NC and Pigeon Forge, TN, you should definitely make this a side-stop.

“Duke”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised when we found Bush's Beans Visitor Center when traveling along the highway. The two displays out front that you could have your picture with Duke was neat. Nice to show the grandsons back home. They also give you a nice "Duke" picture inside the visitor center. Enjoyed the films and history of the company. Also liked the flying pig. Amazed at how big the plant looked. Never thought it was located in Tennessee.
