It all began humbly but today it is a well trusted and established brand in the world. OSI Group was initially founded by a German Immigrant into the United States of America called Otto Kolschowsky. He established a meat shop in Illinois, Chicago serving the immediate community before the 20th Century although the business gained much geographical recognition much later. Two years after inception the demand for meat was almost not possible from one store, he opened another subsidiary operation in Oak Park, Chicago.
Business remains stable and profitable all through an expansion inevitably was bound. The Ottos & Sons as it has already been renamed opened another shop in Maywood and this was closely followed by the launch of other operations under this parent company. In the same vein, the food products’ variety similarly diversified to include various value-added foods.
In 1955, OSI Industries began a franchise business with the McDonalds restaurant based in Des Plaines: it has since become it primary food products supplier. It was named after the OSI Group founders, Maurice and Richard McDonald who had a pact in this family-owned business. It became the first successful Franchising model in the United States. However, McDonalds has since then been sold off to Kroc who is the CEO serving a diverse population with food substances. Today Ottos & Sons company has been rebranded to OSI Group and has gone international.
