For the latter, Hermes is famous for keeping its prices a secret, but similar bags are being resold online for $30,000.

On her Instagram, where she has nearly 24,000 followers, she often posts snaps that show her enjoying lavish vacations, staying in five-star resorts, and dining in top restaurants.

Over the years, she’s jetted off to numerous envious places including Hong Kong, Denmark, the south of France, Paris, Amsterdam, London, Switzerland, Greece, Thailand, South Africa, and Hawaii, among other places.

She also regularly visits Lake Como in Italy, Cabo San Lucas in Mexico, and the stunning Deer Valley Resort in Utah.

So how is she able to live such a charmed life? Well, Hannah’s dad Lance Chody purchased Garrett Popcorn from the Garrett family – who founded the company in 1949 – for about $7 million in 2005.

While Garrett Popcorn was undoubtedly already a Chicago staple when Lance took over, he helped transformed it into a worldwide phenomenon.

There were just four shops, all in Chicago, when the Chody family bought Garrett Popcorn in the early 2000s, and there’s now a whopping 50 locations across the globe – including Atlanta, New York, Las Vegas, Madrid, Tokyo, Singapore, and Dubai.

‘Lance understood the love of Garrett was so huge, and saw the opportunity to share the experience with more people,’ his wife and Hannah’s mom, Megan, who serves as the director of consumer engagement for the brand, gushed to Time Out in 2019.

In the years since Lance became the CEO, the company has also caught the attention of numerous celebrities, like Conan O’Brien, who kept Garrett Popcorn in the green room of his show Conan, and Oprah Winfrey, who has included the snack on her annual Favorite Things list three times.

It is also the official popcorn of the Chicago Sky women’s professional basketball team. 

In 2022, it was reported that Garrett Popcorn’s revenue had reached $50 million.

Hannah – the oldest of Lance and Megan’s three daughters – grew up in a stunning five-bedroom mansion in the Lake Forest area of Chicago, Illinois. 

The spacious abode, which was purchased by her parents in 2002 for $2.8 million, sits on 1.3 acres of property. 

It boasts a gym, golf simulation room, game room, wine cellar (which is accessed by an underground walkway), and a chef’s kitchen with a butler’s pantry, among other things.
