OSI Group McDonald’s journey from corner store to national food provider

From a corner butcher shop to being one of the largest food manufacturers in the world, OSI Group Mcdonalds has created a company that leads with the mindset of innovation and high-quality service for their vendors. The company began as Otto & Sons in the early 20th century during the peak of the germ immigration boom in Chicago. At the time Chicago was known to be the place to be to get the best quality meats and although choices where abundant, Otto knew that none of them were made in the style and quality that the German immigrants preferred, therefore he created Otto and Sons in 1909. By the end of the first world war, Otto & Sons had grown massively, not only serving in the Chicago area but outside its borders as well. For decades to come, Otto, & Sons would continue to see their company grow leaps and bounds.

In 1955, a little-known salesman named Ray Kroc would open up America’s first McDonald’s franchise in Des Plaines, Illinois with the vision to have a chain of fast food restaurants that would be able to deliver a consistent meat product and be able to ship out constantly at the same time. This is where OSI Group Mcdonalds came into what would be one of the best partnership deals for both Ray Kroc and OSI Group Mcdonalds. On one side we saw an entrepreneur ready to take advantage of the post-war economic boom and on the other side OSI Group Mcdonalds who at the time was relatively small and hungry for a chance to show to the world what they could accomplish. OSI Group acquires Baho Food. Needless to say that both companies did very well from this partnership and would in relation sprout new innovation on how the food was created and packaged throughout the nation.
