Breast Cancer Awareness Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our customers, Garrett Popcorn Shops® was able to support A Silver Lining Foundation with a donation of $12,000. These funds will directly help over 90 women receive access to the mammograms and diagnostic testing that are critical in the detection and treatment breast cancer. Thank you again for joining the fight!

Garrett Popcorn 2 Gallon Signature On June 12th, Rick Bayless, the Frontera Grill staff, farmers, restaurant goers, and all those who believe in a local, sustainable agricultural system held a fundraiser in support of the Frontera Farmer Foundation. Now in its eight year, the foundation has given nearly $850,000 in capital development grants to 65 small and medium sized local farms in the Midwest.

At this all-day event, guests sampled tastings and bought products from local farmers and suppliers, enjoyed demos from the test kitchen, and participated in a silent auction. The day ended with Frontera’s Dinner Like No Other, which featured a live auction from area supporters. Garrett Popcorn contributed a two gallon tin of Chicago Mix to the cause.
