Schmitty & Sons is proud to be employee owned! In 2016, Schmitty & Sons became an ESOP (employee stock ownership plan). The ESOP is a benefit to our employees by giving workers ownership interest in the company. Our employees determine our success and growth as a company, so it is only natural that our employees get to reap the benefits of that success!
“I used Schmitty & Sons for my wedding. They did a fantastic job. I had an issue with another transportation company and I reached out to Schmitty & Sons and they saved the day. They were so helpful and accommodating. They responded to emails quickly and efficiently. They did a great job on the day of and showed up when and where they needed to be. The guests had no issues with any of the transportation. I appreciated not having to worry at anytime about the transportation because they did such a great job!”
“We booked the trolley for our wedding and everyone complimented us on how cool it was. Our driver was very professional and respectful and was there to assist us in any way he could. Thank you!”
“We've worked with Schmitty & Sons for a few years now for annual large events. Their drivers are punctual, friendly, and super communicative. The lead-up and planning is also made easy with their friendly staff. We really enjoy working with them.”
“Efficient, friendly and clean service for our wedding day!! Thank you!!”
“We loved our experience from ease of booking to kind drivers who weren't on time- they were early!! Made our wedding day so seamless! Our bridal party loved the trolley and our guest had so much fun playing their own music on the school buses. You must book them!”
“Our very large group from Orlando, FL - that included over 40 kids had the best experience with Schmitty & Son's. We repeatedly changed our times, locations, etc over our 4 day stay and we were accommodated every time without problem. Our drivers were some of the nicest people we met here in MN, as well as the ladies answering our calls at all hours. We highly recommend and will continue booking with you during our annual visit. It was so nice to have stress free travel. Thank you so much!!”
