To cap off an amazing 65th Anniversary celebration, we had a “Super” Happy Friday last week with trips to Austin Village, Oak Park and La Rabida Children’s Hospital.

Continuing our monthly tradition of surprising the people of Chicago with complimentary Garrett Mix one Friday each month, our Garrett Popcorn Team stopped in two Chicago neighborhoods and at a local children’s hospital.

At La Rabida Children’s Hospital, we were honored to be able to bring their staff the gift of Handcrafted Happiness for all of the work they do. We have developed a wonderful relationship with La Rabida, and we were delighted to keep the tradition going by bringing them a treat to celebrate our 65th Anniversary.

Elsewhere in Chicago, other members of our Team traveled to the Austin Village and Oak Park communities of Chicago to treat the people with our Happy Food. Our first stop was Oscar DePriest Elementary School, where we were able to share Garrett Mix with both the principal and the superintendent.

After our stop at the school, we offered roamed the streets surprising people with our special treat. We were even welcomed into a local barbershop to share with everyone there. All of the people in the community were very excited to see us a eagerly welcomed the treat.

We celebrated a momentous 65th Anniversary last week with a trolley tour around Chicagoland, which featured complimentary treats of our Garrett Mix!

Having called The Windy City our home since 1949, it seemed fitting that we hit the streets and give back Handcrafted Happiness to all of the people who made us “A Chicago Tradition.”

From Shop to Shop and landmark to landmark, our #Garrett65th trolley served up complimentary Bags of Garrett Mix throughout Chicago for our fans to enjoy. The trolley experience was certainly one to remember, as we even had a DJ ride along playing music for the fans. Even a few members of the press were able to join the ride as the city of Chicago rejoiced in celebrating one of its iconic brands!
