Being committed to a cause shows that you have integrity. Every industry on earth has committed individuals as well as committed companies. When it comes to the food service industry, no other company is as committed as OSI Group. This particular food service giant has offices all around the world, and it uses some of the most high-tech equipment for reaching its goals. OSI Group is basically the exception to the rule and no other food provider is more efficient than this. The Aurora-based company came into fruition around the start of the 20th century. During this particular time, the company was just known as a small meat locker, but it has bigger and better plans on the horizon.
America was growing by leaps and bounds thanks to its growing economy. On the other hand, America owes a lot of its success to the immigrants that were coming here by the thousands. Chicago, Illinois, was ground zero for German-immigrants. The city’s population dramatically increased in a rather short period of time. Otto Kolschowski was one of those immigrants, and he became the founder of OSI Group. The small meat locker was doing very well for itself as word began to spread about its fresh meat products. Before too long, this meat locker had transformed into a wholesaler of foods and this is when things really began to take off. Otto & Sons was its name as Otto worked exclusively with his two sons Arthur and Harry. During this time, the family-owned business started to supply an up-and-coming hamburger chain with fresh beef. This up-and-coming company just so happened to be McDonald’s. To this very day, McDonald’s and OSI has a strong bond, and that strong bond actually means something.
As the years past, Otto & Sons had transformed into OSI Group, and it provided a wide array of foods, including beef patties, hotdogs, chicken fried steak, pot roast, chili, soups, Tofu, cooked sausage links, fritters, pizza, onion, cucumbers, fruits, cheese, pasta, meatballs and many more items. As of today, OSI Group has grown into a worldwide powerhouse, and it’s one of the largest privately held companies in the United States.
