The story of OSI Industries date back to more than a century. In the company’s early days it was known as Otto’s Meat Market. Otto kolschowski and his sons provided the daily operations, and these hardworking individuals turned this tiny meat locker into a huge success. Otto’s Meat market would eventually expand into food wholesale. The Kolschowski’s had to relocate into a new facility to meet its growth. From Oak Park to Maywood, Illinois, was the trajectory. As of 2019, the company has been running a thriving food processing business from its headquarters in Aurora, Illinois.

In the United States alone, OSI conducts business out of five locations, including Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, California and Utah. McDonalds, the world’s most prominent hamburger chain, was one of OSI’s first big clients. Business was so good to where OSI Industries would build a plant that catered to the production of hamburger patties. This plant was only required to work exclusively with McDonald’s. In addition to that, OSI has worked with a number of high-profile companies such as Burger King, KFC, Subway, Starbucks and Pizza Hut. The company changed its name from Otto & Sons to 1928. In 1972, Otto & Sons would become OSI Industries.

With a continuous effort to evolve with the times, OSI Industries has been able to successfully maintain its top position. What are some of the company’s food products? OSI Industries can produce a wide variety of foods such as cucumbers, fruits, chicken fried steak, chicken wings, pot roast, ribettes, Tofu, pasta, chili, salsa, onions, turkey products, bacon bits, slices bacon, flatbread, pizza, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, beef patties, soups and many others.
