Add a True Chicago Tradition to your Event

Since 1949, Garrett Popcorn is a Chicago brand that has served multiple generations and potentially millions of locals and visitors alike. 

Garrett Popcorn Shops' most popular recipe is the original "Chicago-style popcorn”, Garrett Mix, a blend of CheeseCorn and CaramelCrisp. Fun fact: the sweet and salty combo was actually invented by fans' requests in the 1970s, and it was put on the global map when Oprah Winfrey named it a "Favorite Thing" for three different seasons of her show!

Next to the original Garrett Mix, the brand continues to release unique seasonal flavors.

The Garrett Experience

"Nothing quite compares to the experience of visiting one of our shops. From the aroma of CaramelCrisp simmering in copper kettles, to the friendly faces of fellow fans and our shop team members- visiting a Garrett shop is time tested tradition,” says Misty Lichter, Associate Director Corporate Sales for Garrett. 

She adds, “That same warm and friendly shop experience translates to our private events and gifting options.  Our small-batch popcorn recipes have remained unchanged for over 70 years. For that reason, along with our seamless service, your event guests or corporate gift recipients can expect the freshest, most irresistible gourmet treat they've ever tasted. One bite of Garrett Popcorn, and they won't be able to put it down."

Very Chicago

Adding a Garrett experience to your Chicago event means adding a true Chicago flavor, brought to you by a Chicago based team in a typical Chicago friendly and welcoming way. Whether it is a party favor at your wedding, a late night snack for your guests, or a full white glove popcorn service at a corporate function: the Garrett team will make sure that you get the customized popcorn experience to take your event to the next level and make it unforgettable!
