Food is an essential commodity. As such, many people have tried to come up with companies dealing in the provision of food. Among the various companies dealing with food provision services are such as OSI Industries. OSI has been in the game for long, and they are not backing out soon. As a company that has been in existence for over a century, OSI has been able to carve a reputation for themselves in the food sector. Moreover, over the years, they have been able to overcome various challenges thereby resulting in OSI Industries becoming a more reputable organization.
As much as OSI Industries has been able to spread its wings and set up various branches on a global scale, the company’s journey has been quite interesting. Initially, OSI Industries was a butcher shop that was being operated by Otto Kolschowsky. Otto Kolschowsky was passionate about the butcher shop, and he dedicated a lot of time and effort to see it prosper. With time, his efforts paid off, and he even set up another branch in a region known as Maywood, still in Chicago. Setting up a branch to his main butcher shop was a sign that the business was growing and there was a lot of potential to be tapped into. Otto’s sons were also growing, and they had to understand the basics of the business so that they may run it on their own in the future. Well, Otto included his sons in the business, and they even renamed the company to Otto & Sons since it was a family entity.
Otto & Sons also prospered under the management of the Arthur & Henry; the sons of Otto Kolschowsky. There even came a period whereby the company was contracted by McDonald’s to act as the primary supplier of freshly ground meat. The McDonald’s restaurant was growing first, and they even set up other branches internationally. Otto & Sons also took toll and went global. However, by the time they were going global, they had already rebranded to OSI Industries. Since the rebranding of the company in 1975, the company has been under the leadership of a renowned leader known as Sheldon Lavin.
