For more than 80 years Schmidt’s has been on the go providing Real German Food at fairs and festivals all over the Buckeye State and beyond. Did you know that Schmidt’s is the oldest and, may we say, best food kiosks (yes, we have two!) at the Ohio State Fair?

When you are out and about, look for our black and white striped tents and our yellow Schmidt’s balloon at most all the local festivals. Also for the smaller, one-day events watch for our new Schmidt’s Sausage Truck roaming around the city!


Summer Gigs

You can find Schmidt’s all summer long at our kiosks at Raymond Memorial Golf Course and Berliner Sports Park.
