The Rainbow Factory is a minor location in The Amazing World of Gumball. Nicole Watterson works as a saleswoman there. She always wears a rainbow button on her uniform shirt, which symbolizes the factory. The factory manufactures rainbows out of gasoline, arsenic, latex, lead, and rust, as revealed in "The Factory". It was blown up for an unknown reason in "The Fan," but it was rebuilt in "The Return."
