GARRETT POPCORN SHOPS OPENS FIRST LAS VEGAS LOCATION AT MIRACLE MILE SHOPS
Garrett Popcorn Shops®, a Chicago tradition for more than 60 years, opens its first Las Vegas Shop in Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Garrett Popcorn Shops plans to begin serving the public Saturday, Oct. 6, and Grand Opening festivities are set for Thursday, Oct. 11.
On Thursday, Oct. 11, Garrett will celebrate its Grand Opening with a copper kettle christening to mark the ceremonial “first batch.” From 10 a.m. to noon on Oct. 11 guests will receive complimentary treat-sized bags of world famous The Chicago Mix. Also, Garrett Popcorn Shops fans on Facebook will be rewarded with a complimentary upgrade from medium to large for the entire day when they whisper the secret phrase.
“Las Vegas is known as a city of fun, temptation and indulgence,” says Melissa Mikolajczak, Executive Vice President of Marketing for Garrett Popcorn Shops. “We believe Garrett fits right in with our tantalizing gourmet treats. This Vegas opening is thrilling for us, as Vegas becomes our third national market after Chicago and New York City.”
Here are a few reasons why Garrett will fit right in:
1) You’ll enjoy your good hand even more with CheeseCorn orange “marked” fingers.
2) Popping bottles in the club may be replaced by popping open a tin of Garrett, made with a signature blend of kernels hot air popped to fluffy perfection.
3) Family friendly. Donny and Marie are among the vocal fans who appreciate the Garrett secret family recipe passed down three generations. Garrett handcrafts small batches of gourmet popcorn throughout the day in old-fashioned copper kettles.
4) Double down on flavors. Winner takes all The Chicago Mix – a blend of savory CheeseCorn and rich, sweet CaramelCrisp made from only the highest quality ingredients.
5) Snack time was never so sexy. Halle Berry’s reaction to The Chicago Mix on the Jay Leno Show was sponsored by the letter “O.”
