SkinnyPop co-founder puts newly acquired Glencoe mansion back on the market for $3.8 million

Just two months after paying $3.4 million for a five-bedroom, 7,829-square-foot French Provincial-style mansion in Glencoe, Andy Friedman, one of the co-founders of the SkinnyPop line of popcorn, and his wife, Jennifer, relisted the mansion earlier this month for $3.795 million.

The couple's listing agent, Marion Powers of @properties, told Elite Street that they decided to place the just-purchased mansion back on the market for "personal reasons." Listing information describes the mansion, which was built in 1998, as being "cleaned-up and move-in ready."

"I'm not at liberty to discuss it," Powers told Elite Street.

Andy Friedman, one of the co-founders of the SkinnyPop line of popcorn, and his wife, Jennifer, on May 9 paid $3.4 million for a mansion in Glencoe.

In 2010, Andy Friedman and business partner Pam Netzky created SkinnyPop, a "better for you" popcorn with no preservatives, gluten, peanuts or tree nuts. In 2014, they sold their majority stake in the company to a private equity firm, and today, the popular line of popcorn is the flagship brand in the portfolio of publicly traded company Amplify Snack Brands. Friedman is a member of Amplify's board of directors and is a senior adviser to the firm.

The two-story house has seven baths, five fireplaces, soaring ceilings, walls of windows, a library with a fireplace, two master suites, an elevator, a second-floor media room, a sport court in the basement and a kitchen with Woodmode cabinets, granite countertops and a center island.

The mansion sits on a 1.1-acre property overlooking a golf course.
