Fish and Chip Catering in Reno

Top Fish and Chip Caterers in Reno

Codfather

Carlo Schmitt was born into a Swiss family and is a first generation American. He was raised in his father’s bakery business and at an early age learned everything about the bakery industry. As a young adult, he went to work in a fish & chips restaurant at which time he mastered the skills he is now sharing through Codfather. It was while he managed the fish & chips restaurant that he met and married his co-worker, Kerri, in 1983. They loved working together and say it was the most fun job they ever had. As time when on, they navigated the twists and turns of life, he working as a bread man and she as a bookkeeper. They raised one daughter, Chelsea, who graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno and became an economist with the State of Nevada. Over the years, Carlo continued to prepare his favorite recipes from the fish & chips restaurant, to the delight of his friends and family. When he made his clam chowder, he stuck to the original restaurant- sized recipe, enough to feed an army! None ever went to waste and he continues to receive frequent requests to make his “famous clam chowder”. The Schmitt family settled in Reno in 2001 and soon created “Lights of Tanea”, decorating their house with Christmas lights synchronized to music. It became an annual tradition for families near and far to visit Lights of Tanea for some Christmas spirit and to give food, clothing and monetary donations for charity. It was during these years the Schmitts learned how to entertain and please a crowd. Fast forward to 2014. Carlo and Kerri were on a long car ride in April, pondering how he could make his “famous clam chowder” and share it with their community. But just the clam chowder wasn’t enough. He wanted to share everything he knew – the fish & chips, the corn fritters, the coleslaw, all of it! It was on that ride that the concept of “Codfather” was born. The name, the menu, the truck, everything – it was their “aha” moment! They would once again get to work together selling fish & chips – the thought of that thrilled them! So for the next year they plotted and planned, and even got help from their nephew, Jeremy Dyer (a creative genius!), with the design and wrap of the truck as well as the promotional materials. In 2015, they introduced “Codfather” to the streets of Reno. It’s their baby, and they look forward to the next chapter of their lives, bringing the recipes Carlo has held all these years to the streets of Reno and its surrounding areas. He hopes you find as much pleasure in visiting their food truck and tasting his recipes, as he finds in preparing them for you. Carlo and Kerri love Reno and want to do their part to make their little corner of the world extra special and fun. Come share the joy and reel yourself in some delicious street food!
