OSI Group Grows With Mcdonalds  0

The roots of the OSI Group start back over a century with Otto Kolschowsky and his small butcher shop in Chicago, Illinois. The was a German immigrant and started his company just 2 years after immigrating to the United States in 1907. By the end of the world war, the business was booming and he began the expansion into the wholesale meat industry. It was eventually rebranded to Otto & Sons in 1928 and his sons became much more involved in the business operations of the company.

The end of World War II saw a lot of changes in the United States and around the world. Suburbs became more popular and a business agreement with the future Chief Executive Officer of Mcdonald’s, Ray Kroc. When Ray Kroc and the sons of Koschowsky, Harry and Arthur, made the deal to supply Ray Kroc with meat for his franchise, he only had one store in Des Plaines, Illinois. When he went on to purchase the entirety of Mcdonalds to become the CEO, it marked a big day in the development of OSI Group. Ray Kroc honored the agreement he had made with the Koshowsky brothers previously and suddenly they were the first choice of meat supplier for all of Mcdonald’s. As their demand grew, they needed to figure out ways to produce a high-quality product at a competitive price in quantities large enough to meet their demands. This is what made the OSI Group what it is today. Through methods like flash freezing, they are able to provide a product that is consistent in every market. OSI Food Solutions UK awarded 2016 Globe of Honour by the British Safety Council.

The OSI Group has grown to have facilities in 17 countries. There are 20,000 employees at their 65 facilities around the world. They began to expand products to products like hot dogs, sausages, and bacon. In 1975, they became the OSI Group as it is known today. This same year, Sheldon Lavin came onto the company as a partner. Over the years, as Mcdonald’s grew, they grew along with it to be their first choice of supplier to this day. They are one of the largest private companies with a worth of $6.1 billion. Not only do they supply Mcdonalds with their meat, they have also branched off to other areas of the market with their expanded product lines.

Mr Nick Vertucci, the Real Estate Entrepreneur’s Book  0

Mr. Nick Vertucci is the founder and president of the Nick Vertucci Real Estate Academy (NVREA). NVREA has risen to be one of the most prestigious learning institution availing the students from all parts of the continent with the knowledge and skills necessary to flourish in the real estate industry. He is also an expert and investor in real estate. He is the founder of several real estate companies and acting CEO. The celebrated entrepreneur hailed from a very humble background and made his entire fortune on hard work. His first successful venture was in tech business before the financial bubble of 2004 wrecked it all.


Mr. Vertucci has launched his very first book titled Seven Figure Decisions. The book is a blend of personal memoir and guide outlines on the pillars of winning in business. In the book, Nick Vertucci shares his own story of loss and come-back attitude that has helped him succeed. The book itself is a five star rated business memoir in Amazon with over a thousand copies sold already. The book is available on Amazon Kindle and paperback on Amazon.


Nick comments that the loss of all he had invested in the computer business led to his venture into Real Estates. He relates that while in the real estate venture, he made a lot of mistakes and got quite depressed before joining a training circuit for real estate investors and acquired a mentor. Afterward, he had to change his thinking and coupled it with the appropriate actions before his financial troubles got eliminated and instead of surviving he thrived.


Lioncrest Publishing Company published the three hundred and fifty-page business memoir. The book outlines in detail the significant steps that informed his life-changing philosophy and enabled the establishment of sustainable business and granted him financial freedom. In an endorsement by Kevin Harrington, the original shark from shark tank commented that the book is better than the usual rags to riches story. He said that Seven Figure Decision is a rags-to-riches, back to rags again, then back to riches.


This is true because Nick Vertucci built a tech empire without any money or education. When things seemed to be going okay for the entrepreneur who was almost attaining economic liberty, everything crumbled. He lost all his fortunes and was stuck deep in debts. He finally ventured into real estates and learned the ropes of the industry well enough. Real estate gave him a second chance to start over and fight his way back to the top. If ever you dream of being a millionaire, the first step would be to listen to the man who did it twice.

Over the last 22 months, the price of Palladium has grown 109%, and it does not seem to be showing any signs of decreasing in the near future.

Platinum is still used as the primary metal in catalytic converters for diesel-powered engines however Palladium has taken the place of platinum and gasoline engines. In fact, over 80% of the world’s Palladium supply is used in catalytic converters for gasoline powered engines. Today the price for one out the Palladium has actually grown to be higher than 1 ounce of platinum. While in the future as electric vehicles grow in market share the overall demand for palladium and platinum both will more than likely decrease there are no signs of this changing in the near future.
