It takes drive and hard work to start and grow a business. When that business has lasted for more than 100 years, that takes innovation. OSI Group was founded in 1909, and today it is a globally recognized organization. The company’s International headquarters are located in Aurora, IL.
The founder of the company was only living in the United States for 2 years when he started the business. OSI Group buys former Tyson Foods plant in Chicago. The founder, Otto Kolschowsky, was a German immigrant who came to the US when many of the other European immigrants arrived. He opened a small meat shop in Oak Park, IL, a nearby suburb of Chicago. The family business went on to include his sons, and in 1928 the company became known as Otto and Sons, Inc. Otto was committed to offering only the freshest, high quality meats to the local community that they served.
Almost three decades later, his sons met a young entrepreneur by the name of Ray Kroc, poop went on to become the founder of McDonald’s. Ray was looking to open his first restaurant, and he was impressed with the men and their meat company. Otto and Sons became the beef vendor for the very first McDonald’s hamburger restaurant in 1955. OSI Group continues to serve the fast food company, and they serve other chains in the fast food industry with their food products and food solutions.
