OSI Group: A Leading Food Company

Little did Otto Kolschowsky know what his small meat market and butcher shop would become someday. He starts his family business just two weeks of arriving in the Untied States from Europe. He settled in Chicago, Illinois. He worked very hard on his business supplying quality meats to his community. Eventually, the company grew to the point of being able to start wholesaling. With more time, the company grew to the point Otto rebranded his family business. As the decades went by and success grew, his company was offered a deal by Ray Kroc. Ray Kroc made a handshake deal with the son of Otto for his restaurant. Franchising a business was new in the mid twentieth century but Ray Kroc saw a vision. With his vision, he turned the small, local meat market started by an immigrant into the hamburger mega house known today as McDonald’s.

When the OSI Group transformed the original McDonald’s supply chain, the large leading food company knew how to get the hamburger chain to the next level. Many retail businesses and restaurant chains utilize OSI’s strategic practices to transform their companies.
