The real Willy Wonka factory

While chomping nerds I noticed that they were made by the Willy Wonka Candy Factory in Itasca, IL 60143. I loved the movie (with Gene Wilder) and wondered if the factory might be visible from Google Maps. Maybe it had been made to look like it did in the movie and was a tourist attraction.

I was disappointed to find nothing but a dull gray building.

    Comment by Jessica on December 12, 2006 @ 11:15 am
  4. Jessica: I wouldn’t mind visiting there myself, but I’ve never been there. What you see on Google maps is all I’ve seen of it.

  8. I have always been a really big fan of the movie Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory, and have always been curious as to whether or not there was a real chocolate factory.

    Comment by Kelsey on November 20, 2007 @ 7:46 pm
  9. I would really like for you to send a picture of the real Willy Wonka to me. I really would appreciate it.

    Comment by Kelsey on November 20, 2007 @ 7:49 pm
  10. I live about 5 minutes from the factory in Itasca, IL. It is just a building in an industrial park. There is a large sign saying ‘Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory’, but nothing else exciting. I do not think there is a store or anything open to the public. A few years ago I drove by the building and got the really great scent of sweet tarts filling the air!

    Comment by Mike on November 24, 2007 @ 8:38 pm
  11. That’s too bad. They could make quite a bit of money by reproducing some of the things they had in the movie. I for one would love to have a swim in the chocolate like Augustus.

    Comment by dan on November 26, 2007 @ 8:36 pm
  12. I am a girl scout leader of 12 girls that would love a tour of your factory. Is that possible?

    Comment by Denise on February 7, 2008 @ 9:18 am
  13. Where id the real Willy Wonka Factory?

    Comment by JOHANA on February 17, 2008 @ 2:54 pm

  15. I am doing a letter to the wonka factory for my school and I want to know what to say in the letter. DO you have any ideas of what to say? I’d be happy to tell you what theey say in they’re response if I get one…

    Comment by becca on March 4, 2008 @ 7:09 pm
  16. Becca: You’d know best what you want to say to them.

    Comment by dan on March 5, 2008 @ 9:16 am
  17. I would LOVE to inside the wonka factory.Can you please send me pictures of the factory. (inside and out.)I would also like to take a tour of the factory.

    Comment by Rachel on April 5, 2008 @ 4:35 pm
  18. Rachel: I don’t have any pictures. If you take a tour take some pictures and I’ll post them here. I have a feeling it’s not like the movie.

    Comment by Dan on April 6, 2008 @ 1:38 pm
  19. So did your wife ever tour the chocolate factory? Ironically I met someone whose brother dated your wife’s sister or perhaps it was her sister dated your wife’s brother. It was small world kind of funny.

    Comment by whaleman on April 7, 2008 @ 4:31 pm
  20. Nope, at least as far as I know. It’s a small world… :)

    Comment by Dan on April 7, 2008 @ 4:50 pm
  21. I live a few minutes from there. Not as exciting as one would expect THE Willy Wonka factory to be. It’s in the middle of an industrial/commercial park. Not sure if you can tour it

    Comment by Jamie on July 5, 2008 @ 7:15 pm
  22. @Jamie Thanks for the information. I’m surprised they haven’t created some sort of tourist attraction there. I know I’d love to visit something half as sweet (pun intended) as what we saw in the movie!

    Comment by Dan on July 7, 2008 @ 9:07 am
  23. i love his chocolate yes i do

    Comment by samuel on July 16, 2008 @ 1:54 pm
  24. is it really a real factory that still runs and produces stuff? i wanna noe if this was based on a true story will might have a had a few twists.

    Comment by elizabeth on July 18, 2008 @ 7:43 pm
  25. @elizabeth As far as I know the factory is just another factory that makes candies, not anything related to the movie. I wouldn’t be surprised if the factory was created after the movie as a way to capitalize on its popularity.

    Comment by Dan on July 24, 2008 @ 12:43 pm
  26. My dad is the owner of the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory. I can get anyone in for free if I am able to meet them.

    Comment by Kandi on October 3, 2008 @ 7:23 pm
  27. oh and It’s not like the movie inside but it’s pretty close. Of course in the movie they addes Special Effects but I mean they did a pretty damn good job on the real thing. Oh and there really is a chocolate waterfall and a edible room too. The flavored wall isn’t there though. The elevator is glass and it does go to every room as well.

    Comment by Kandi on October 3, 2008 @ 7:28 pm
  28. im doing a project in school about willy wonka and if i could have any thing like pictures or info i would love that…

    Comment by gabi on November 23, 2008 @ 3:07 pm
  29. This message is for KANDI. I used to work @ the wonka factory and there’s an employee there that i lost contact with. I was wondering if you could help me out. please contact me @ [email protected]. I’d really appreciate it if you could help me.

    Comment by malysa on December 3, 2008 @ 9:14 am
  30. i know his phone number if you want to know it email me at bbutrfillllllllllllllll jk

    Comment by emma on January 26, 2009 @ 1:17 pm
  31. Hi Dan – My son just had the exact same experience as you. He was eating the Nerds, etc. Did a web search and – nada. No I am not going to ask you for pictures of the factory :-) You have been more polite than I would with all the mis-directed posts! I seem to recall “Wonka” candy back in the ’70’s after the first movie came out. Don’t know why they wouldn’t want to capitalize on the theme park angle as well! Thanks for the site!

    Comment by Keaty on February 15, 2009 @ 7:40 pm
  32. Keaty: Thanks for the comment. It’s refreshing to hear from someone who understands I don’t have any pictures of it :)

    Comment by Dan on February 15, 2009 @ 9:35 pm
  33. i love willy wonka’s candy. i’ve never had a chocolate bar before.

    Comment by ella on May 2, 2009 @ 3:16 pm
  34. I’ll be going up to Illinois this summer around my Birthday to visit my grandparents, and we’re looking for something to do. I’ve been looking (almost) all my life for a site that might give me info on tours, public events, etc.

    (Kandi, if your Dad is really owner, could you help a guy out? Please?)

    Comment by B-Day Boy on June 6, 2009 @ 7:57 am
  35. Does Anyone actually know if there was a real boy named willy wonka?Or What His Real Name Was? I would love to know more about his real life story and how he really got started in the whole “Chocolate Business”

    Comment by susan on July 2, 2009 @ 8:35 pm
  36. There is no willy Wonka. The book was not based on a real person. The movie, Willy Wonka and the chocolate Factory, was actually made to promote a chocolate bar, which ended up failing, but the movie was a success. The Wonka brand of candy, to my knowledge, doesn’t make chocolate, they make things like nerds, and sweetarts.

    Comment by Shae on July 7, 2009 @ 8:18 am
  37. is the factoy tour-able??

    Comment by Amber on July 13, 2009 @ 1:15 pm

    Comment by mike on October 14, 2009 @ 5:19 pm
  42. Wow, I’m doing a school project on nerds from willie wonka.
    And…well I need samples to share with the class because if i dont i get a B and i want an A. I could buy them but I’m just waiting to find out if i actually can get samples. If “Kandi” really is related to the owner it would be nice if you could email me at [email protected]

    Comment by Emma on November 2, 2009 @ 1:36 pm

  45. wow some of these people are really stupid. THE REAL WILLY WONKA FACTORY IS A PLAIN GREY BUILDING WITH NOTHING COOL ABOUT IT!!!!

    Comment by Khrystle on November 13, 2009 @ 1:43 pm
  46. I honestly am stunned at how unintelligent people are. Kandi (who doesn’t exist) is full of crap and her dad doesn’t own the Wonka Candy Co. Come on people, are your lives that miserable and desparate? For the love of God!

    Comment by smarter than you on November 22, 2009 @ 4:25 pm
  47. whats willie wonks zip code

    Comment by maria cora on April 10, 2010 @ 3:19 pm
  54. @maria The actual Willy Wonka factory is a drab manufacturing building, not the chocolate wonderland portrayed in the movie.

    Comment by Dan on April 11, 2010 @ 2:16 pm
  55. Is the Willy Wonka Factory in Itasca a real place for tour etc?? I want to have a candy party for my daughter 6th birthday party and would really love to have it there..But Not sure if it’s open to the public for events. Would love to know I have called the number and no one has answered i’m thinking about taking a ride there to find out!

    Comment by Gianna on April 12, 2010 @ 12:51 pm
  56. Nope, it’s just “a drab manufacturing building, not the chocolate wonderland portrayed in the movie.”

    Comment by Dan on April 12, 2010 @ 2:28 pm
  57. That really sucks!!!! They should turn it into a place for people to go to that would be so FUN!! And it would make so much money! Oh well does anyone know of a candy factory store in the area for have parties at?? I really want to do that for my daughters birthday this year! Any help would be great Thanks :)

    Comment by Gianna on April 13, 2010 @ 8:38 am
  58. I agree, they could make it a big tourist spot.

    Comment by Dan on April 13, 2010 @ 8:56 am
  59. I noticed someone was advised to send an email to the Willy Wonka Factory re their inquiry. Where does one get that email address?

    Comment by Towanda on May 11, 2010 @ 12:42 am
  60. @Towanda I have no idea. They may not have one.

  63. Hi Dan, so I was just wondering if there was any kind of address you could give me, my 4 year old son just wrote a letter to willy wonka after watching a commercial for the new chocolate bars and he really wants to mail it to him. i was hoping to actually mail it to maybe their customer service or something like that and that maybe, i know its wishful thinking, but they might mail him back something, anything-a picture, a card, a damn coupon for all i care :) but i would like to actually send it to someone…i know everyone’s bombarding you for pictures and such and i was on the website and did a search for the address..maybe you could help me out…thanks a lot!

    Comment by leslie on June 18, 2010 @ 2:11 pm
  66. yes I too would think they would make at least a torism part of it for everyone to see why dont they do that? that seems a little silly to make a movie and then have a factory to be plain and boreing. I would love to see a willy wonky factorty like the movie or close to it. I love chocolate and the movie was great too. maybe we should send them a pateion..

    Comment by mnm chick on July 4, 2010 @ 11:32 pm
  67. I want to know if Willy Wonka really exist? If the story in the movies or in the books are based on real life I love Willy Wonka thanks

    Comment by ERIKA on September 9, 2010 @ 9:54 am
  68. There is a company that makes chocolate, but the movie took some liberties with reality.

    Comment by Dan on September 9, 2010 @ 9:56 am
  69. They could also make a ton of cash by putting “golden”tickets in there chocolate bars with prizes!!

    Comment by munchies420 on September 9, 2010 @ 9:43 pm
  70. No kidding. Anyone who watched the movie as a kid would be all over that.

    Comment by Dan on September 9, 2010 @ 9:45 pm
  71. The movie was filmed at an industrial building somewhere in Germany. The real factory is nothing like the movie, but the edible room WAS real. Most edible items (like the flower Willy ate) were just plain wax. He even spit it out after the scene ended.

    Comment by oHai on September 10, 2010 @ 8:08 am
  72. Willy Wonka is my favorite person and i would like if he put golden tickets in the rapper and if i would have been like charlie and got a ticket i would be so happy.

  82. Hi, is willy wonka a real person? Is the factory i saw in the movie real? What are you? A millionaire or billionaire or trillionaire? tell me. How old are you? how many people visit your factory a day?
    How many dollars does it take to get in the factory?

    Comment by Mamadou on December 1, 2010 @ 3:25 pm

  86. while it seems great to visit the factory…we must always remember…

    “Nobody goes in and nobody ever comes out”

    Comment by Sandy on December 8, 2010 @ 6:44 am
  87. I never liked reading but this has shown me the importance of English class. There are so many repeated questions on this page it’s ridiculous. And apparent you guys haven’t heard of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, whose creativity is apparently being wasted.
    Dan, you looked at a pack of nerds and somehow became the leading authority on everything Wonka, and for that, I feel sorry for you.

    “WONKA®: Can I visit the Willy Wonka Candy Factory?
    The Willy Wonka Candy Factory is dedicated to producing the highest quality candies that you would expect from Willy Wonka and Nestlé. Because of this commitment to quality, as well as safety, we do not provide public factory tours.”
    The proof’s in the pudding that Wonka does not make.

    Comment by Mike on December 9, 2010 @ 9:42 pm
  88. @Mike At least someone reads the comments before commenting :) I posted this four years ago and it’s still chugging along, all because of a box of nerds. Thanks for the link to their FAQ.

    Comment by Dan on December 9, 2010 @ 9:52 pm
  89. 1. Your jokes suck almost as much as you do.
    2.Changing from two jokes to only one, makes me mad. Kids have dreams of coming home from a rough day of first grade and amusing themselves with a FEW Laffy Taffy jokes, but no lets get all cheap and save money and only have one joke. You suck. This sucks.
    I demand an immediate change in this matter before I take further legal actions.
    Have a fantastic day Mr Wonka

    Comment by Nan Black on December 21, 2010 @ 9:29 pm

  91. I was wondering does THE WILLY WONKA Factory have scheduled tours and if so how much does it cost to tour the factory. Please email me back with a response.

  92. @Kristin While you were typing the comment, the answer was right on your screen in Mike’s comment. Please folks, read the comments before asking the same questions over and over again.

    Comment by Dan on December 29, 2010 @ 8:54 am
  93. I was just wondering what the actually factory was that was used in the movie and where it was located at. thank you

    Comment by Deborah on January 8, 2011 @ 6:00 pm
  94. @Deborah It was most likely a temporary set created for the movie.

    Comment by Max on January 31, 2011 @ 6:59 am
  98. Wonka candies are real good. There is no such person called Willy Wonka you dumb—–. They just took up the name after the movie for more publicity.

    Comment by Some of you are DUMB on February 1, 2011 @ 5:14 am
  99. I work there it’s a normal candy factory… and we do not produce chocolate

    Comment by jeff on February 2, 2011 @ 7:09 am
  100. the real wonka factory that was used in the original is located in munich, germany, where the movie was filmed.

    it is now the munich gaswerks, located at 10 emmy-noether-str.

    hope this helped you. :)

    also here is a vid of then and now shots…

  104. I wonder if the factory is as big as it is in the movie charlie and the chocolate factory, and can they post pictures of the factory.

    Comment by Chris on March 15, 2011 @ 7:23 pm
  105. Haha Dan holy cow man I feel sorry for you. Somehow your comment seemed to instantly attract the most ignorant group of people ever conceived. I was literally laughing out loud at the level of stupidity some comments generated and at one point was in near disbelief that a human being who actually knew how to function would ask some of the questions some of these people have, especially when you had just answered their very questions. What made it even greater was not once did you reply in anything but a civil manner. You never suggested that they go back to the first grade and learn to read. You always just calmly replied the answer to their questions. Dan I can definitely say this thread just made my day. Oh
    but just one question, could you send me some pictures of the factory? I’m sure you have an intimate relationship with Willy Wonka himself and could get me some photos of the chocolate room. ;) Haha just kidding stay awesome man!

    Comment by Aaron on March 16, 2011 @ 9:35 pm
  106. @Aaron Thanks for the comment, I got a good laugh :) By the way I found out about a Wonka Golden Ticket promotion but it has already ended.

    Comment by Dan on March 17, 2011 @ 9:18 am
  107. Hi, My name is, Derek. I was amazed when I have seen the, “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” (1971) Movie. I was -6 (Negative Six) years at the time. “LOL” But, with my expirence of observing the architecture and engineering characteristics including the 3D graphics in the “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” (2005) movie compared to the 1971 Movie, I’m not sure if anything equivalent could top the, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” movie. If I was able to win the State lottery in the county where I live in, along with my 4 year computer science degree I’m studying in school, I would be able to use the money and my skills to replicate the factory based on the movie, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” if, I was given copyright permission from their respective owners who made the, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” movie to do that. I then, would turn it into an actual factory tour theme park for everyone. (Golden Ticket not required to get in)

  122. @ kandi. Can you send me some pictures of what the inside of the factory looks like? Please , thank you very much . Email me at [email protected]

    Comment by cherie on December 2, 2011 @ 2:48 pm
  123. It is clearly a production facility built to produce foods… Normal facilities do not allow random visitors to stop by for a tour… It is against GMP’s (if you don’t know what GMP’s mean google it)

    It any of those comments about pictures and other things are true.. wow..

    and don’t meet up with random people on the internet.. that person is probably some creep who will kidnap people..

    (864)426-1090! Thanks

    Comment by Danielle Benton on March 23, 2012 @ 11:35 pm
  132. So, I read each & every post! I cannot believe some posts either. However, I have 5 kids and the only reason we allow them on the net, is to research something they don’t know about or to play games. This being said, to many of whom have been extrodinarily rude, please understand, children (those whom appear to be of less keyboard & grammar literacy) it’s just a post, to which children view! If you don’t ask questions, you may never know the answers! Good day! And Dan, lots of props for dealing with the comments! LOL

    Comment by Brandi on April 1, 2012 @ 10:17 pm
  133. @Brandi Thanks for your comment. My kids are still too young to be galavanting about the internet unaided, and it hadn’t occurred that many of the head-scratching comments could have been written by unsupervised young’uns whose reading and comprehension skills may still be developing. It seems fairly obvious now, especially given the subject matter ;)

    Comment by Dan on April 1, 2012 @ 10:37 pm
  134. please tell me where it is ( have to write business letter school )

    Comment by Dan on April 24, 2012 @ 4:02 pm
  136. I want to know if nestle and Willie wonkers are producing the shockers I am so usedf to loving. I can not find them in Peterborough, Ont. Canada any more. I love them and they are my staple. Please let me know by e- mail at [email protected]. It would kill me to know if they are not producing these any more.

    Comment by Sharon Williams on April 25, 2012 @ 7:16 pm
  137. I wouldn’t mind working at Willy Wonka Factory because I have some ideas that Wonka can do for new flavor candies and choclote bars. I will not post them online because I want Willy Wonka Factory to have those ideas and no one else. I can’t find Wonkas Candy in Eastern Oregon anymore but I would love to share my ideas to Willy Wonkas Factory.

    Comment by Stephanie Howard on May 4, 2012 @ 8:12 am
  138. i just wanted to kno if the real wonka factory is made of candy if its not i think they should remake the movie and put the real factory in it all it does is make me wonder i would love to tour it anyways…..

    Comment by Scottie on May 8, 2012 @ 7:50 pm
  139. I would like to point out the chocolate factory is not in the US at ALL it is in Munich in Germany!!!!

    Comment by Thomas on May 11, 2012 @ 4:21 am
  140. @Thomas Are you saying the factory in the movie is in Germany or that there’s an actual Wonka factory in Munich?

    Comment by Dan on May 11, 2012 @ 2:39 pm
  141. Id love if they brought the wonka choccy bars back. I’m pregnant and all I crave is wonka choccy bars :( no other chocolate comes close to it.

    Comment by Nik on May 28, 2012 @ 5:50 pm
  142. F— you Willy Wonka for getting rid of Wacky Wafers!

  146. @Alyssa It’s time you had a chat with your parents about Willy Wonka’s existence and about sharing personal information like your full birth date online.

    Comment by Dan on June 25, 2012 @ 10:57 am
  147. Wonka factory’s are owned by Nestlé there no magical man behind the door
    Even tho it would be amazing to have an exact replacer of the film even if not edable
    And just for people to foresee the experience no ones dad owns willy wonka may manage but look through the net and you will see Nestlé own the wonka brand xx

    Comment by Tarn on July 13, 2012 @ 7:59 am

  150. I got a golden ticket where abouts is itasca?

    Comment by matt on September 16, 2012 @ 12:52 am
  151. Is there an elevator like the glass flying elevator that Willie and Charlie flew over the city? And, is the chocolate good? We like the part of the movie when the girl is hauled down the garbage shoot by the squirrels.


    Comment by Lisa on September 16, 2012 @ 11:32 am
  152. @matt It’s in Illinois

    @Lisa No, the glass elevator was pure fiction. The company seems to produce far more candy than chocolate. I don’t know if I’ve had Willy Wonka’s chocolate.

    I love the movie – it’s one of my favorites.

    Comment by Dan on September 16, 2012 @ 12:31 pm
  153. The Willa wonka factory is mostly empty I went ther and nothing at all just a sign it’s just not exciting

    Comment by Declyn on October 31, 2012 @ 11:02 pm

  158. It’s the old gas works location in Munich there is no actual factory. The gate is still standing but the rest has been demolished. The address is 10 Emmy Noether Straße (street) Köln, Munich, Germany

    Comment by Thomas on December 1, 2012 @ 5:24 am
  159. Hi, my son has just got a golden ticket out of a Wonka Bar -is this for real or do they all have them in but it says go to the factory on 1.2.13 As we live in the UK this would be very expensive for no reason, I’m assuming these tickets are in every pack and it is a joke…….any (sensible0 comments welcome please

    Comment by shiley on December 28, 2012 @ 4:18 pm
  160. @shiley That’s the first I’ve heard of it. It could be a practical joke.

    Comment by Dan on December 29, 2012 @ 3:09 pm
  161. Oh my Lord… where to start!!! 1st off @ Dan, you are truly a good person for responding to alot of these idiots! Lets just be honest people… Dan really could be a mean person or a internet perv, but he is not! Alot of children ask questions on this site just like if it were about Santa Clause or the Easter Bunny and yet not one time has Dan been disrespectful nor a perv. So with that I appreciate that. Now #2 besides the children…Take note to READ FIRST! We are taught that in school. Dont ask the same questions that’s already here! It is ONLY A MOVIE…PERIOD PEOPLE!! Nevertheless thank you Dan for making my day because I had tears in my eyes reading a laughing historically at alot of the idiotic comments and questions. Especially when the lady said she was going to get a lawsuit against u for finding plastic in the candy unless you emailed her

    Comment by Cyndy on January 12, 2013 @ 8:39 am
  162. @Cyndy We’ve had quite a run of comments here, haven’t we? It’s been almost six years since I posted this. I’m glad you had a good laugh :)

  163. Very funny posts, hope Kandi never lured anyone with HIS meet me and ill show you trick, Jesus the internets scary, probly a 40 yr old dude.

    Comment by Walt on January 15, 2013 @ 8:03 pm
  164. The factory from the movie is in Munich Germany.

    Comment by Jamie on January 16, 2013 @ 3:41 am
  165. @Walt I agree. I can only hope that parents are keeping an eye out for their kids on the grand ol’ internet.

    Can I have a free tour. Thanks

    Comment by Homer Simpson on March 16, 2013 @ 6:00 pm
  171. @Homer Judging from your name I’d guess this is a joke, but in case it’s not, and for the benefit of anyone else who may be reading, Mr. Wonka is not a real person.

    Comment by Dan on March 17, 2013 @ 3:53 pm
  172. I saw the movie and I have it. But I want to see it inside and out. CAN you please send pictures.

    Comment by jared rodriguez /son on April 5, 2013 @ 5:29 pm
  173. I wonder if they have most of the stuff from the movie in the factory. Like WONKA-VISON. I wonder if there is going to be a competition in geting the golden tickets.

    Comment by jared rodriguez /son on April 5, 2013 @ 5:33 pm
  174. I really enjoy watching the movie every time it comes on no matter what I am doing I go into my bedroom and watch I love to know where the Willy Wonka factory is at and if they do tours I have been watching it since I was a young child.Can you please let me know this would be a great present for me if they do any tours in may.I guess the child inside of me will always be with me even though as we get older.I will be 50. at the end of this month. Thank you

    Comment by barb on April 15, 2013 @ 9:52 pm
  175. @barb They don’t do tours because it’s just a dull manufacturing location, not a magical chocolate wonderland.

    Comment by amy on December 24, 2015 @ 10:39 pm
  188. I thought I did this already. Dan,this way too funny. You are very nice to answer the same questions over and over. I found this site by accident. Am watching willy wonka now. And no I am not going to ask any dumb questions. Just thought I’d let you know I think this is hilarious. As to how many of us want wonka to be real. When in reality, he’s not. It’s Christmas and I am having a hard time. So this site made my day. So, to you, I say thank you!

    Comment by amy on December 25, 2015 @ 11:03 pm
