Free Sriracha Tours!


Don’t call it a comeback! The Sriracha factory has reopened it’s doors after a brief interruption in production due to Irwindale resident’s complaints of an overbearing stench. But this time around, the doors are opened to employees and community members alike. It seems that the factory is delivering a peace offering of sorts, by inviting the public to take guided tours of it’s factory. Given the, now infamous odor, I’m really not sure who will be taking the Huy Fong Foods company up on it’s offer. But then again, I know that there are some hot heads who were probably in line long before it dawned on me to write this.

In a letter sent to select fans, Huy Fong Foods writes:

After many months of transitioning from Rosemead and testing our new equipment, we are pleased to announce that we are now ready to invite visitors to our new building in Irwindale. Therefore, if you are interested in seeing how our Sriracha is made and how delicious it smells, we would cordially like to invite you, at your convenience, to see our facility during our regular office visiting hours, which is Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 3 pm. Please feel free to call customer service (626) 286-8328 to schedule an appointment. We look forward to seeing you.

Best regards,
