One of Cape Cod’s top tourist attractions is back in business following a brief closure for renovations. Cape Cod’s Hyannis Factory Tour welcomes more than 250,000 visitors annually, showing hungry travelers where and how Cape Cod potato chips are produced. The decades-old brand creates its potato chips one batch at a time in custom kettles, which guests see firsthand during the free self-guided tour. The factory produces 30,000 pounds of potato chips daily, for 7.2 million pounds of potato chips each year.
The recent renovations included expansions to visitor spaces to meet increasing demand; photo opportunity spots, so visitors can capture the brand’s iconic kettles on camera; and a new patio area for guests to relax and snack. The gift shop offers new merchandise following the renovations, in addition to the complimentary potato chips guests receive at the end of each tour.
“Since opening in 1980, the Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory in Hyannis has been a mainstay on the Cape,” said Leslie Waller, vice president of marketing, Cape Cod Potato Chips. “We’re delighted to introduce exciting enhancements to the beloved factory tour that will continue to offer visitors the chance to see just how their favorite potato chips are made from beginning to end!”
