A man immigrated to the United States in 1909 from Germany. This man, Otto Kolschowsky had only been in the states for 2 years when he opened his first family meat market. By the year 1917, Otto had expanded to the wholesale end of the market. He then relocated into the Maywood, Chicago suburb changed names to Otto & Sons.
Over the course of several decades, Otto and Sons was the place to go to when you wanted quality meats. Their reputation was recognized further than just the Chicago region.
By the year 1955, a startup business who had high hopes had decided that they would bring the offer to Otto & Sons to supply fresh, beef patties to the business that would go on to be called, McDonalds. The actual deal that was made between Ray Kroc and Otto’s sons had occurred by handshake.
Opening a large volume meat facility in West Chicago, Otto & Sons had come up with a specially designed patty that would undergo liquid nitrogen which would help the meat stay fresher, longer when being frozen. Soon after this moment, Otto and Sons would then form another unit which would handle the businesses that were not connected to McDonalds. By the year 1975, OSI Industries is what the name would be changed to. In 1999, OSI would enter into an agreement with licensing by Best Chicago Meat Co. By the year 2011, the unit that was started to handle the non-McDonalds business would be acquired completely by the Best Chicago Meat brand.
Since this time period, OSI has become a well known, established privately held company that has an annual revenue of over $3 billion dollars.
OSI has made massive progress from the days of an immigrant entering into the United States and then opening his first family meat market. What started out as a small business grew into a larger business worth over $6.1 billion dollars in 2016. They started out with fresh, quality meats and have turned the food market around with now supplying quality meat which includes hamburger patties, hot dogs, fish, bacon and more. OSI is also a supplier for most of the other large chain restaurants in China. Many restaurants like Papa John’s Pizza, Subway and even Starbucks all use OSI for their meat providers as well as other items. Throughout the years, OSI has been awarded a number of awards for management of health and for their safety.
