When it comes to comparing all of the food service providers/suppliers, there is one company that comes out on top. This company is known as OSI Industries, and it has been able to evolve into a juggernaut. OSI Industries’ strength is located in its capability. This Illinois-based company is one of America’s largest private companies, and it brings in billion per year. It has also worked with some of the most prominent brands in modern-day society, including KFC, Subway, Starbucks, Papa John’s Pizza and Burger King. Back in the 1950s, it secured a deal to work with one of industry’s most up-and-coming hamburger chains. By working exclusively with McDonald’s, it had to match McDonald’s growth because the hamburger giant was growing at an alarming rate.
As McDonald’s continued to grow, OSI had to open a facility that provided all of the necessary goods to supply this hamburger giant. In 1973, OSI Industries opened its first plant in West Chicago, a suburban neighborhood, which catered to McDonald’s needs. At this point in time, the company had manifested into a food wholesaler, and it’s popularity began to soar. OSI would go on to open facilities all across the US in numerous regions, including:
• Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin
• West Jordan, Utah
• Oakland, Iowa
• And more
The cryogenic revolution has also played big role in company’s success as its meats could travel to much farther distances without spoiling. Out goes the old guard and in comes the new guard. OSI Industries was now a global company and Sheldon Lavin took over as the new CEO. This man is well-educated in finance, and he has a B.S. in Business from Roosevelt University. Sheldon Lavin and David McDonald, the president of OSI, went on an acquisition blitz. As of today, OSI Industries has acquired stake in prominent businesses like BAHO Food and Flagship Europe.
