Garrett Popcorn

At Garrett Popcorn Shops, we’ve maintained our dedication to fresh, delicious popcorn since we first opened at 10 West Madison Street in Chicago. We continue to use only the highest quality ingredients from area producers as we handcraft our gourmet popcorn in old-fashioned copper kettles. We strive to deliver the same popcorn today that customers first talked about in 1949. What makes Garrett Popcorn so special? We hot air pop our signature blend of kernels, which we then mix into our secret family recipes. Every batch is handmade daily and the result is an irresistible snacking sensation, which has generated lines outside of our retail locations for decades. Our highest priority is to satisfy our customers’ cravings for great popcorn. When local fans asked for a mixture of sweet and salty, we created The Chicago Mix: a blend of our famousCaramelCrisp® and CheeseCorn™ recipes. It remains our most popular flavor and a consistent favorite throughout our entire fan base. Our year round menu also includes Plain, Buttery, Cashew CaramelCrisp®, Almond CaramelCrisp®, Pecan CaramelCrisp® and Macadamia CaramelCrisp®. Keep an eye out for our seasonal flavors from time to time as well. You never know what will pop up! Garrett Popcorn’s great taste has gone global, but hometown values guide us. Although our popcorn has traveled to New York, Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore, our many Chicago locations keep us firmly grounded at home. When you visit, you can find us in the heart of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, next to popular theater and tourist attractions, or as you catch a plane at O’Hare International Airport. If you are unable to visit one of our shops here or abroad, you can still find us online at GarrettPopcorn.com or reach us by phone at 888-4-POPCORN / 888-476-7267. Experience firsthand why Garrett Popcorn Shops have been Chicago Tradition Since 1949.

As Garrett Popcorn prepares to POP up in Detroit, we took a trip to bring a taste of the Windy City to our friends in the Motor City.

Last weekend, a team from our Chicago offices took off on a road trip to visit the location of our newest Shop in Michigan. On Friday, we took our Happy Friday tradition to the fine people of Detroit, giving them a taste of our signature Garrett Mix!

Motor City Meets The Windy City

Garrett Popcorn loved hitting up the Beach Party at Campus Martius Park and seeing how excited everyone was to get their hands on our world famous Garrett Mix. Later on, we stopped by Comercia Park while the Detroit Tigers were playing to share our happiness as well. In just 90 minutes, we had shared our Handcrafted Happiness with 500 people!

Happy Friday

The reception we received from the people of Detroit was spectacular. Some of our fans even told us they “literally drive back to Chicago once a month for Garrett Popcorn!” Imagine their excitement knowing we’d be coming to Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi just next month!

Detroit Tigers

On Saturday morning, we set up our booth at the Woodward Dream Cruise. From 9am to 4pm, we handed our over 8,000 complimentary samples of Garrett Popcorn to the attendees.

Just as you would expect from an iconic Chicago tradition, Garrett Popcorn was at one of the hottest Chicago parties of the year – the Chicago Fire White Party!

Chicago Fire White Party

We brought our Handcrafted Happiness to the White Party for soccer fans and soccer stars alike to enjoy during the hottest party of the summer. Even Chicago Fire superstar and reigning MLS MVP Mike Magee stopped by to enjoy some of our famous Chicago Mix!

Mike Magee

The “Mike Magee’s Day Off” star, as friendly as he is talented, was all too excited to lift our 6.5 gallon Signature Blue Tin just like a trophy. We were thrilled to see the MLS MVP so passionate about Garrett Popcorn.

Last night’s event was the fourth Chicago Fire White Party, which has become a fun tradition for the Windy City’s soccer fans, all to benefit the charitable branch of the club – the Chicago Fire Foundation.

Chicago Fire White Party

Thanks to everyone at the Chicago Fire for including Garrett Popcorn in this amazing event. If you’d like to enjoy the same Popcorn as a superstar Mike Magee, just stop by one of our Shops or order online.

If you were to write up a list of Chicago traditions, Garrett Popcorn and Lollapalooza was most certainly be near the top.

So it should come as no surprise that Garrett Popcorn was there for Chicago’s biggest music festival. We were ready to rock with the Handcrafted Happiness that Chicago loves!

And knowing that Chicago loves Handcrafted Happiness, hometown superstars and Lolla performers Krewella snacked on some of our delicious Chicago Mix while in town to perform. Just like any true Chicagoans, they couldn’t come back home without partaking in this Chicago tradition.

Lollapalooza Krewella

Of course, Garrett Popcorn was also on the Lolla party scene at Nellcote, which is were Krewella enjoyed our Chicago Mix. We also sent complimentary Tins of our Chicago Mix to numerous performers to welcome them with a A Chicago Tradition.

Lolla Krewella

As is the case every year, though, Lolla has now come to an end. We hope everyone had a safe and fun weekend! Hopefully you had a chance to enjoy our Handcrafted Happiness while in Chicago for the festival, but if not, we’re always  available for your snacking needs at www.GarrettPopcorn.com.
