In 1927, the brother of E. Otto Schmidt accepted a train-car load of gingerbread as payment from a customer and sent them to his brother for sale. Faced with the challenge of selling an entire wagon full of gingerbread, E. Otto Schmidt thought up an idea that was revolutionary and unique for his time:
He sorted the gingerbread into a variety of attractive packages and sold them directly to individuals by means of regional and national advertising. This was the beginning of Schmidt's gingerbread mail order business. Encouraged by success, E. Otto Schmidt opened his own small bakery in Nuremberg to produce gingerbread to sell to the public.
