New Sriracha Factory Tour Goes Behind the Scenes of 'Red Rooster' Sauce
February 12, 2014 at 1:36 PM
You’ve been missing out if you haven’t tried Sriracha yet. The chili-paste-meets-hot-sauce concoction is now used on anything and everything, and even Subway has commercials advertising the stuff slathered all over their five-dollar footlongs. Now those needing even more of a fix are welcome to do so, as the Willy Wonka of the Sriracha industry has opened up the factory for public tours.
Huy Fong Foods is the company behind the magic, and now free tours are available in Irwindale, California in and around their 650,000-square-foot factory.
The chiles are doing their thing each and every day, and you’ll be able to check out the process, the bottling, and lots of other factory fun. We’re not sure if there’s a gift shop or free samples, but we would just like to suggest they add them sooner than later.
To get in on the tour you do need to call them, as they need to know if you’re coming for a visit. Tours are held five days a week, and things look to be available between 9am and 3pm. Dial them up at (626) 286-8328 to schedule something, and then be sure to let us know how things went.
