Currently, OSI Group is an envied food provider across the world. It has employed approximately 15,000 workers to serve its clients. It has 65 production facilities across 17 countries. The rise of this organization, from its humble beginnings into becoming a primary corporate business is appended to the 20th-century economic history of immigration in America. The firm has since developed an astonishing growing presence in the evolving modern world of food production. During the 20th century still, a man named Otto Kolschowsky moved to Chicago. He worked hard to garner resources to start a small business that would supply meat products. He also moved part of the business to a suburb called Maywood. The city was a successful business center for many entrepreneurs. As Carl Sandburg would call it, it would be the hog butcher created for the consumer industry.
In 1909, Otto started to expand the business. He registered excellent performance within a decade. He involved his two sons in running the business. As such, OSI Group became the main food supplier of meat and related products to various businesses. In 1928, the small family business developed into a local supplier of food. The adoption of various technologies has since marked its success at the outset of the economic expansion. Modern cities started to increase their demand for meat based products. A successful business alliance was created when Ray Kroc established a McDonald’s restaurant. He still served as an employee at a couple in San Bernardino. The restaurant was one of the first franchises to be founded in Des Plains.
Prior to launching the company into the consumer industry, Kroc signed a contract with Otto and his sons. They became the sole suppliers of raw and ready made food to the organization. That was a constructive development. OSI Group became a regional supplier. In the search for finance to stabilize the company and its operations, OSI hired a financial guru named Sheldon Lavin to help in acquiring funds. He bought most of the firm’s shares and became the head cheerleader. Until now, OSI Group has been expanding its horizons. The firm has developed an appropriate business model to help it in functioning effectively.
