The first McDonalds was established in 1955 by Ray Kroc in Des Plaines, Illinois. Back then, Kroc was still a franchise agent for a couple, Richard and Maurice McDonald, from San Bernardino, California. The franchise was founded as a family restaurant in 1940. A franchise as a method of business was just taking hols in the country and the Des Plaines restaurant was amongst the first business to expand through franchising. The relationship between the franchise and OSI industries was established a few years before Kroc opened the first original McDonalds through a handshake agreement with the sons of Otto Kolschowsky, the founder of the OSI group, creating the OSI group McDonald’s symbiosis. Back then the OSI industry was just a family run meat market in Chicago. It had just started expanding and had moved its operations from Oak Park to Maywood another suburb still in Chicago.

The OSI food processing industry was established in 1909 by Otto Kolschowsky as a butchery and a retail meat market. By the end of the first world war, the business had expanded its services from the local community to include other parts of Chicago. A decade after the move to Maywood, the franchise was re-branded as Otto and Sons. Its services went from small family run business to a wholesaler. OSI started providing other food processing industries with meat products one of them being McDonald. The OSI group McDonald’s franchise has produced and branded meat products together.

The McDonalds franchise is built on consistency of its products and services in each of its restaurants. This is easily achieved through the OSI group McDonald’s network. The OSI group has over the years maintained the consistency in quality of its products and services. That is why they OSI Group McDonalds have maintained their relationship. It is also why the OSI Group McDonalds franchise has been able to stay afloat for over a century. In 1973, the OSI Group McDonalds dedicated the first high technology production plant for the production of McDanolds products. The OSI group McDonald’s relation has strengthened over the years and to date, it’s still one of the most envied business bonds.
