We love these products and were happy with the free gifts at the end of the tour. BUT this experience was not really worth the trip. First, there is no signage for parking or where one goes to sign in for the tour once you're parked. We watched a video for 20 minutes or so until it was abruptly ended by the tour guide and we went into the plant. In the plant, most on the tour could not hear what the guide was saying (loud plant and soft spoken guide). Nice factory. Nice story. Not so nice tour.

Highly recommended. Easy to schedule on line, then show up for about a free one hour tour. They drive your around part of the factory, and you walk around another part, so you get to see the massive operation and the assembly line of making bottles, filling bottles, packing into boxes, etc. You end up in the gift shop but they give you one free product and you can purchase T-shirts, etc. only if you want to, no pressure. I didn't catch the name of our tour guide but she was great, even though she's only been on the job about a month.

Love the three products. Use them all the time. We live in Western Australia and it was great to be able to do this tour. It was run very well. Everything was explained well. Would love to be at an open day in August, September or October though. Thank you for a great experience.

It’s super kitschy and super fun - just like all the fans who swear by the greatness of Sriracha sauce. The tour is well done and includes an up close inside tour of the factory and processing facilities. Make sure to reserve on the website and bring closed toed shoes!

The facility is huge - an entire city block. They have 2 "buses" that take you inside the factory. There is a gift afterwards. All for free!
The story of David Tran is the culmination of the American dream.
