Visiting Bush’s Beans Visitor Center

We took a short drive to visit the Bush’s® Visitor Center located in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Chestnut Hill, Tennessee. You can learn all about the company’s history, where the beans are grown, and how the beans are processed.

You start the self-guided tour to the right of the gift shop with the opportunity to watch a short video that shows the journey the beans go on from the field to your table. Learn about the company’s iconic commercials featuring the talking dog, Duke, and even see the original A.J. Bush family artifacts.

Once you finish the movie, you can wander through the rest of the visitor’s center and learn about the bean process.

Things to Know:

  • Admission is free.
  • You cannot tour the factory, but a movie in the visitor center shows the process.
  • Allow about an hour for your visit.
  • The visitor center is fully handicapped and stroller accessible.
  • Restrooms are available when you first enter the visitor center.
