The Cape Cod Potato Chips factory has a new and improved tour

Visitors to the Cape Cod Potato Chips factory in Hyannis this month are experiencing an updated nautical-themed tour full of original factory artifacts and a new patio where they can relax and eat complimentary chips.

After four months of renovations, the tour — which the factory says attracts 250,000 visitors each year â€” reopened July 8. The free, self-guided, 30-minute tour allows guests an up-close view of how the potato chips are produced one batch at a time in custom kettles.

Changes to the tour include a widened walkway to accommodate double the amount of guests, artifacts from the factory’s opening in 1985 such as the factory’s original kettle, plenty of photo opportunities, and a nautical decor that includes floors inspired by the ocean, new light fixtures, and boat ropes.
