We had a great off chili harvest season tour of the facility of the legendary sauce. We were the only ones in attendance.

No problems parking for free. Met by armed security who had a list of registered visitors. Had the golf cart tour of the factory floor as well as a walk through of some key areas. Didnt meet David although apparently we drove past him working on the floor. Factory is quite unique in that it tries to be self sufficient rather than relying on logistics. Tour guide was very genuine.

Got free mini bottles of sauce and tshirts one per person.

Off season there are no strong smells.

Don't wear the tshirt in Irwindale. Some locals are not thrilled.

OMG!! Can I give more than 5 STARS??? My first time attending their annual Chili Grinding Season. Super Super Super well organized!

They started the registration way early in May. You can do it on their website. This event is during September & October on Saturdays, from 10-3pm. They give out different time slots to spread out the crowd and most important... the parking issue! Everything here is FREE... except your purchase at the gift shop. FREE parking, FREE tour, FREE t-Shirt, FREE sriracha, FREE food sampling, FREE t-shirt, FREE cup..... Yes, this event is FREE too!!! How awesome is that~

Once you signed up, they will email you the "parking pass". The security at the front will check the time slot on your parking pass. Many staffs stand by at the parking lot, non-stop golf carts picking up people from their car so they don't have to walk too far. How considerate it is!! Love it~

Then go to the registration area and check in. They will give you a ticket to redeem your FREE gifts! Before you start the tour, stop by the Tattoo booth, Red Carpet booth and take pictures with the Sriracha man and of course our one & only Mr. David Tran (CEO & Founder). He is like a celebrity... everyone wants to have a picture with him.

In case you don't get the chance to meet him, don't worry.... there are cardboard live size Mr. David Tran displayed in the warehouse!

It is a self-guided tour so take your time and take lots of pictures. Once the tour is done, it is food sampling time and gift shop shopping time!!

Overall, WONDERFUL event!! Very well organized and efficient! The community loves Sriracha~

Looking forward to come back again next year!
