CHICAGO (CBS) — The owner of Garrett Popcorn Shops is buying the Frango mint brand from Macy’s, meaning the iconic chocolates will once again be owned in Chicago.
Cincinnati-based Macy’s has announced it will sell Frango to Garrett Brands.
Although Garrett Brands owns the popular Garrett Popcorn Shops chain, you won’t see Frango mints at their stores.
“Garrett Popcorn Shops will continue to operate separately and will not serve as a retailer for Frango,” spokeswoman Michelle Molise said in an email.
