The tale of “The Golden Arches” begins hand in hand with OSI Industries; a world wide quality food provider of humble beginnings. The veritable “Tale of two cities” (not the Dickens classic novel), one city; Chicago, and the other; San Bernardino California. Richard and Maurice McDonald + Ray Kroc + Otto Kolschowsky + 100 years of hard work = Success!
Not just any ol’ success, but perhaps the greatest success story this world has ever seen. The great McDonald’s restaurant chain is, of course, known by everyone alive, and shows no signs of slowing down. Few are familiar with how McDonalds’s restaurants got all the beef for their now world famous hamburgers. Well, therein lies the tale of Chicago and an immigrant from Germany named Otto Kolschowsky.
From those days a mere 100 or so years ago, Otto began his small business providing meat products and butcher services to his fellow Americans. The partnership began with McDonald’s restaurants and Ottos little meat market has now become one of the largest food companies in the world and they are going strong.
OSI Industries (“O” for “Otto” and “S” for “Sons”) has enjoyed great success from those wonderful days in the early 1900’s, and today their reach is global and their services are many and their products are first rate. We probably all consume something from their company every day.
Food is nothing if not creative. The phrase ‘Culinary Arts’ is after all, an accurate description of what They are all about. With their expansion into Chicken and poultry, the creative teams at OSI Industries are not only providing the staples for the world, they are creating new ways to prepare and deliver quality dishes. Their wide range of products and services is meeting the world wide demand for DANG GOOD FOOD!
They may not sound like a fancy French culinary ristorante, but rest assured, they are on the cutting edge of feeding the world. With a new global trading platform based in Germany (wasn’t Otto from Germany?), OSI Industries has broadened their footprint and they continue to grow in amazing ways.
Their creative abilities, which come from the best employees there are, allow them to not only maintain industry standards, but raise the bar and set new standards for the world to emulate (and envy, to be sure.)
From the beginnings of a small meat market, to a world supplier of not only meat, but vegetable products as well, the future of OSI Industries is bright, and despite being well fed, their clients and customers are hungry for more.
A company does not reach world class levels by accident. The work is hard and the hours are long. However, each and every of the 20,000 plus employees around the world are dedicated to their efforts and the ends are always satisfying. Great products and services come from great people, there is no other way for such great success to happen.Hold the onions please.
