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.

To celebrate Black History Month, Garrett Popcorn will give 10% of all Tin sales* to our friends at the Black Ensemble Theater.

Black Ensemble Theater

The mission of the Black Ensemble Theater is to eradicate racism and its damaging effects upon our society through the utilization of theater arts. BE is the only theater in the nation whose mission is to eradicate racism. Other organizations work to diversify audiences, but none utilize theater to bring races together in a community which embraces similarities and fosters dialogue, understanding and acceptance.

For all of February, we’re also offering an exclusive ‪Black Ensemble Theater‬ Greatest Hits CD in Shops, with 100% of proceeds benefiting our friends at Black Ensemble Theater!

POP by one of our Shops this month to pick up your Tin or Greatest Hits CD. You can also visit us online at to Create Your Tin.

Each month, Garrett Popcorn shares Complimentary Bags of Garrett Mix on the street to show our appreciation for our loyal fans. This January we visited Union Station in Chicago to share our #HandcraftedHappiness with all the hungry commuters!

Happy Friday

Armed with 300 Bags of Garrett Mix, our Teammates shared Handcrafted Happiness with the commuters flowing into Union Station for their journey home after a long week of work. In just four minutes, all 300 had been shared as fans rushed to enjoy our Happy Food.

We love seeing pure happiness POP up on people’s faces when we share our Garrett Mix, and hope to bring our Happy Friday events to everyone in the world one day!

Join us in February as we hit the streets of Chicago to share Handcrafted Happiness once again. We don’t want to give away the surprise, but February is Chinese New Year… 😉
