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.

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 ;)

After taking our Happy Friday tradition to the Motor City two weeks ago, we came back to share our Handcrafted Happiness on the streets of Chicago in Logan Square!

Happy Friday Team

Logan Square was the perfect venue with The Boulevard: Logan Square Music & Arts Festival kicking off Friday night!

We were even honored to be joined by a special little guest, as one of our Teammate’s daughter joined us to share the Handcrafted Happiness of our Garrett Mix with the lovely people of Logan Square. She was definitely a big hit.

Happy Friday Guest

One of our all-time favorite Happy Friday moments happened in Logan Square, as we were able to spread a bit of cheer by offering our Happy Food to a man getting his car towed. It’s never fun dealing with car drama, but he definitely cheered up a bit when we offered some complimentary Garrett Popcorn!
