Interesting history about the Bush Family and Bush's Baked Beans. It is adajecent to Bush's Family Cafe which is a great place for lunch. It takes about an hour to tour it, PLUS it is FREE and you get a FREE picture of you and your spouse with "Duke". It is about 20 minutes from Piegon Forge.

I have purchased and seen Bush's Beans in the grocery store for years. Who would have thought they came from somewhere? The main factory where it all started is out in the Tennessee countryside and is as modern as can be, still owned by the original Bush family. They turned their General Store into a museum ad visitor center where... More

Went on with Bus tour, VERY friendly people and welcoming to our entire group. We watched about a 20 minute video about how Bushes Beans got started, quite interesting. Learned a little about Duke the Dog as well. You can also walk thru the small Bushes Bean memorabilia and have your picture taken with Duke...FREE! it comes out really cute!... More

Although their attraction is informative, it is less impressive than most "company" tours I've ever taken.

I could hardly bean-lieve my eyes when I saw this place on the side of the road. On our way to Asheville, NC, we pealed off for a quick informative video of Bush's history and operation, a (free) photo with Duke, several cans of beans and a great hike recommendation (Mt LeConte, amazing) from the cashiers. Check it out for... More

I got to visit with friends on a trip and they took me to see where the yummy Bush's baked beans are processed. I really enjoyed all the interesting historical info, items, and short video about the beginning of the company. There is a nice store and a restaurant with plenty of fun picture opportunities. If you're out this way... More

The Bush Bean visitor center was a great place to see. Hearing about the family and how they started up the company was fantastic. It was also great to learn about their business culture and what they are doing to help the environment. If you are going to Pigeon Forge area it's very close by. They have a great gift... More

So disappointed. Bush's beans are a favorite of family, so we had to stop in to say we had been there. Got there 7 minutes before closing. Thought we could have a quick 5 minute shopping stop. But no. They had the door locked already, but a woman opened it and told us we could walk thru to the parking... More

My husband and I had planned on going to the Bush's Co. and as we were going to Morristown we came right upon the visitor center and restaurant. They have flavors we didn't even know they had. Their new one right now is Honey Chipotle. It is so good. The restaurant has delicious food. My husband got fried catfish, fries... More
