Learn. Explore. Eat Candy.
Every year, people from all over the country come to learn about our process of making the “World’s Best Gummies” and chocolates. What makes us unique is that we are the only candy company that offers a public tour for gummi manufacturing in the USA. You’ll get to view our Gummi Factory through 8 separate windows and see two videos explaining the creation of our gummies and one video featuring our Gold Label Chocolates. Albanese tours are a great way for people of all ages to add a little fun and knowledge to their day.
Our tours are designed for people of all ages and the tour is wheelchair accessible. We offer two types of tours – guided group tours or self-guided tours, geared toward the individual visitor. Both types of tours are FREE. From November – December and March-April, no tours will be given. Santa and the Easter Bunny visit us every year during that time.
The guided tours are designed for groups of 12 or more, buses, or large families. A tour guide is provided to give an introduction to our company, explain the machinery used to create our gummies, and to share samples of both gummies and chocolates with your group. Typically a guided tour takes 30 minutes for a maximum of 25 people at one time (example: if you schedule with 50 people, 25 will shop while the other 25 are on the tour and then the groups will switch). If your group is larger than 50 people we will have to schedule more than one tour time. Group tours must be scheduled at least 2 weeks in advance with a Tour Director (call as soon as possible, they tend to book up quick!). Group tours are available Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday between the hours of 9:30 AM and 3:00 PM. To schedule, call (855) 272-3227, Ext. 241 or e-mail us at email@example.com
Self-guided tours are ideal towards the individual visitor. The self-guided tour allows you to view the videos at your own pace and then sample a gummi and a chocolate at the conclusion of your tour. Depending on attendance levels, this tour typically take between 5-15 minutes (at your discretion). Self-guided tours are available any time during store business hours with no reservation required. Our store hours are Monday through Saturday from 9-8 and Sunday from 10-6.
