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 or reach us by phone at 888-4-POPCORN / 888-476-7267. Experience firsthand why Garrett Popcorn Shops have been Chicago Tradition Since 1949.

On your mark… Get set… GO!

Garrett Popcorn was excited to be involved at the BTN Big 10K this past Saturday. It was an amazing, fun-filled weekend benefiting the terrific cause of Special Olympics Chicago!

It all kicked off the month before the race as our Garrett Popcorn Teammates celebrated with BTN Big 10K and Special Olympics Chicago at Benchmark for a little pre-race tune-up. Of course, everyone fueled up with the treat of Handcrafted Happiness!

BTN Big 10K

On Saturday, July 26th we headed to the BTN Big 10K bright and early to setup our tent next to Special Olympics Chicago. There we shared our Handcrafted Happiness with over 15,000 attendees and participants!

Garrett Popcorn wasn’t just there to share our Handcrafted Happiness, though. Several of our Garrett Popcorn Teammates actually participated in the 5k and 10k races! While it was great to be there with Special Olympics Chicago, our Teammates were excited to participate in the races along with handing out our complimentary Bags of Handcrafted Happiness!
