OSI company started when Otto Kolschowsky came to the United States from Germany and after being in this country two years, he opened up a family-owned and operated meat market in 1909.

Otto’s family business was thriving, so he expanded it in 1917 and changed the name to Otto & Sons.

As time past, Otto & Sons became renowned for selling quality meats. In fact, in 1955 they were one of the suppliers of ground beef patties for a new eatery called McDonalds.

Ray Croc the founder and CEO of McDonalds soon desired the two Kolschowsky’s brothers as the only supplier of beef for his flourishing restaurant chain.

Otto’s sons used the latest technology in processing plant, to keep up with McDonald’s demand for more beef, as both businesses rapidly increased.

To keep their operation running, they needed financial assistance.

They were introduced to Sheldon Lavin, a consultant in the field of finance, as well as the owner of a financial firm. He gave them the assistance they needed and they changed the name of the business to OSI Group, in 1975.
