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.

To kickoff our #Garrett65th Anniversary month with style, Garrett Popcorn teamed up with 1871, Chicago’s entrepreneurial hub for digital startups, to bring our Happy Friday tradition to their weekly Happy Hour.

It was an amazing opportunity for us to share the Handcrafted Happiness of our Garrett Mix with so many brilliant minds. It seems our signature treat is just as much brain food as it is Happy Food, considering we emptied two 6.5 Gallon Tins in less than an hour!

Happy Friday

If you would like to eat like the entrepreneurs at 1871, stop by one of our Shops or visit us online to enjoy our Garrett Mix. And stay tuned for more events celebrating our 65th Anniversary. We may just be sharing Handcrafted Happiness again this month ;)

To celebrate Throwback Thursday, we’re taking a trip down memory lane to when Garrett Popcorn made an appearance on The Steve Harvey Show.

Steve Harvey is one of the biggest Garrett Popcorn fans around, and when he brought Oprah onto his show to discuss their favorite treats in Chicago, the whole audience was surprised with Tins of our world-famous Garrett Mix!

Enjoy the below clip from when Garrett Popcorn was featured, and enjoy some Garrett Mix of your own by visiting one of our Shops or ordering on our new website.
