Television shows like How It’s Made are very popular, but watch it on TV if you go see the real thing somewhere? If a tired old fortune cookie factory in San Francisco can become a tourist destination, why can’t your factory?

Wired:

Every day, tourists pop into the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory to watch its three machines squirting out batter and bathing it in flames. Each one is the size of a piano and their operators only have a few seconds to stuff the batter with an enigmatically profound message before it hardens. The one-room workshop is narrow, long and fragrant with warm sugar and vanilla.

“Look! They’re making them!” a woman squeals during a recent visit.

Located in San Francisco’s Chinatown, the factory has been in business since 1962 and produces 20,000 cookies a day.

“There’s a certain amount of thrill to come into an old-school factory,” says tourist Joanne Phua, who followed a friend’s suggestion to see the factory while visiting from Las Vegas
