The foundations of this company were laid a century ago by a German immigrant. At that time, America was the place that gave people living in other countries a sense of hope and reason to dream of a better future. People traveled from far over to this country. In particular there was one immigrant that made it to American and began a family business. This Chicago family business sold meat to the local residents living in the city. It was a place of unity that stood as a place where the community could come together and get good food.
The food at this meat market became so beloved people from other parts of Chicago and the suburbs on the outskirt of the city came to buy meat. The founder passed the company down to his sons. His sons were able to establish the meat market into business franchises all over the United States. These franchises eventually became McDonalds. OSI Group is more than just a major food company.
