Made in Sheboygan: A century later, Schwarz still about family
Family bonds have kept Schwarz Fish Co. steadfast through a century and four generations, said Elizabeth Visser, one of the fourth generation Schwarzes now running the family business.
"I think my dad it's really neat for him to see when we sit around and talk about this and that and he can probably picture him talking to his father and his mother about those things,” Visser said. “He's seeing the next generation ‘talking shop.’"
Those family and business discussions that often blend together after working 12-hour days with her brother, Brett Schwarz, and sister, Leslie Winter, were missed during Visser’s years of absence from the family business after graduating from college where she earned a degree in accounting.
