OSI Industries opened its doors as a meat market in the early 1900s. It was founded by an immigrant named Otto Kolschowsky. Otto had a specific vision for his company. He named it Otto and Sons and proceeded to establish himself in the Chicago area. Over the years Otto adjusted his business model by providing service to food industries. This service included restaurants and supermarkets. Eventually Otto turned the business over to his sons and they continued the companies reputation of excellence.
As the 1950s approached, the McDonald’s Organization was expanding across the country. They were looking to establish themselves in Illinois and needed a meat supplier that they can trust. Otto and Sons was called upon to handle the task. Their relationship with the McDonald’s Organization blossomed over the years due to the many innovations that Otto and Sons brought to the meat manufacturing industry. They introduced cryogenic freezing chambers. This was a method of supplying large amounts of inventory without damaging it and delivering the product to McDonald’s in a workable fashion. Otto and Sons also introduced meat patty cutting machine, which catered to their most important client at the time.
Otto and Sons changed its name to OSI Industries and became the primary meat supplier to the McDonald’s Organization. OSI Industries expanded over the years to accommodate several other restaurant chains. Pizza Hut, Papa John’s Pizza, Starbucks and Subway are all clients of OSI Industries. The company has factories all over the world and operates with several different other food manufacturing companies. It allows OSI Industries to keep a diverse interest in food manufacturing, which helps them remain on cutting edge of industry.
OSI Industries acquired other companies such as Tyson Foods, Baho Foods and Flagship Food Group in order to expand its influence in a market that continues to grow.
