You can see and smell the making of the famous Utz Potato Chips and Snacks at our over 600,000 square foot facility in Hanover, Pennsylvania. There, we have built a special glass enclosed observation gallery that looks down on our production process from beginning to end. You will be guided step-by-step with the aid of a push-to-talk audio program and closed-circuit TV monitors. A wall display of Utz's history will enhance your understanding of the company and its products. From start to finish, you'll be impressed with the care we put into Utz Potato Chips. At Utz, we use the finest ingredients and the most advanced equipment. Our factory is one of the cleanest and most modern snack food operations in America. The Utz Potato Chip Trip is fun for the whole family, a learning experience for young and old, and a snack lover's delight. Come and enjoy the free tour at your own pace!

Not really. There are stairs to climb up and no elevator available. I think there is a very limited sight line for the factory by taking another route but you can not look down and see the actual operation.
