OSI Food Solutions: America’s Top Food Processor

As of 2019, OSI Food Solutions has solidified its place as the top food processor in America. On the other hand, this Illinois-based food giant may be the top food processor in the world. You are looking at over 100 years of foodservice excellence. From Oak Park to Aurora is the company’s track.

An ambitious German-immigrant founded the company over 10 decades ago. This man was just one of thousands who migrated to the Chicagoland area around the turn of the 20th century. Life in those days were much simpler, and OSI offered some of the best tasting meat products in the region. As word began to spread, this tiny butcher shop began to make a name for itself, and the rest was history.

OSI Food Solutions’ success really took off when it graduated from meat butchering to food wholesale. This change occurred when the company relocated to Maywood, Illinois. The business had built a solid brand at this point in time, but commerce would get even better. Arthur and Harry Kolschowski, the two sons of OSI’s owner, made a deal with the CEO of an up-and-coming hamburger chain. This deal would help OSI Food Solutions reach its pinnacle. Ray Kroc, the CEO of McDonald’s at the time, offered OSI the deal of a century. Of course, the food wholesaler agreed to this deal as it became one of McDonald’s main suppliers of beef. Business was so good to where OSI Food Solutions would eventually build a plant that specialized in beef patty production.

As of 2019, OSI Food Solutions has worked with a number of prominent businesses, including Saizeriya, Yum, Papa John’s Pizza, Starbucks, Subway and Burger King. Of course, this short list only scratches the surface, but you should have a much better idea of how popular OSI truly is.
