The story of OSI Group started back in the early 1900s. The company was founded by a guy named Otto Kolschowski. This German immigrant named the business Otto & Sons, and it was one of the best sellers of meat in the Midwest. Since the company was family-owned, it was rather small, but oh how times have changed. Thanks to selling some of the freshest meats, Otto & Sons’ name began to flow for miles and miles. It was growing at an alarming rate, which forced the company to move away from its Oak Park location of Illinois. The hamburger chain, McDonald’s, became the company’s first high-profile client. This dynamic duo’s relationship remained strong right through the cryogenics boom of the 1960s. To this very day, the two companies has retained a strong business bond.
