Mega Shot

In 2008 TJ Schmidt & Company unched 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 Terry’s 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. Son’s 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.
