Neon Utz Potato Chips

Utz Factory Outlet
861 Carlisle Street
Hanover, Pennsylvania

On the roof above one of the first of the Utz Potato Chip facilities, is one of my favorite neon signs. Initial construction here was in the late 1940s/early 1950s; but it has been expanded over the decades and definitely has a 1960s vibe in the building design and signage.

This location is also one of  their factory outlets. You can find samples and buy snack foods at excellent prices inside the retail location on the Clearview Street side of the building. I was told that I couldn’t take any pictures inside the store (although I spotted a number of people taking snaps). I suppose that’s what I get for asking instead of “doing”; but my mother’s voice is always in my head telling me to ask first 🙂

If you would like to take the self-guided Utz factory tour, head a few blocks away to the 900 High Street location. See hours and details  here.

      I really should go back and film it a night. I’ve taken still pictures of it at night; but they were awful. Maybe I’ll win the lottery (that I never play) and get some better photography gear 🙂
