It's not secret that Garrett Popcorn is a Chicago favorite. Their recipe for that buttery goodness is, however, top secret.
Well, it's supposed to be...
Garrett Popcorn's parent company, CarmelCrisp, is suing a former employee who they say stole their secret recipe.
A research and development head at CarmelCrisp is accused of stealing top-secret recipes from the company before she was fired last month. She was one of only three employees who had access to the iconic recipes. According to the lawsuit, she learned of plans to fire her so she copied thousands of computer files and took them with her... Including the top secret recipes!
