In 2008 TJ Schmidt & Company launched its inaugural season. Though the name was new
and the equipment was upgraded, company founders Terry and Sandy Schmidt were not new to
the carnival business in 2008! Both Terry and Sandy are second generation carnival owners
who grew up in the industry while their parents, Sherman and Joy Schmidt and Ivan and
Agnes Arnold managed units on the Glenn Wade, Michigan based, W.G. Wade Shows. From 1982 until
the close of the 2007 season Terry and Sandy owned and operated a large amount of
equipment with the Schmidt Amusement Carnival which was founded by Terrys parents.
Today, forming their own business, TJ Schmidt & Company is an all new, single
unit midway and an innovative company that offers over twenty rides, games,
speciality food, high class shows and customer amenities. Sons Josh and Kyle
Schmidt, third generation carnival owners, have begun to take over the daily operations of
the show. Together with their parents they have the company poised for continued growth
and expansion well into the future.
