During his tenure, OSI Group McDonalds has transformed the company from a local food retailer to a global enterprise. It operates in over 65 plants which are spread out in various parts of the globe. The number of workers at all its facilities currently stands at 20,000. Forbes has listed OSI Group as one of the top 100 private firms in the United States and its assets have an estimated value of about $6.1 billion.
OSI Groups started as a butchery shop which was based in Illinois, Chicago and was operated as a family business. The retail store was later branded as Otto and Sons. The management of the firm decided to expand the business to other parts of the world. There existed a good relationship between the management team at OSI Group and McDonald’s and the two organizations partnered where the former would be a core supplier of meat products to the latter. OSI would also benefit from the vast networks of McDonald’s at the time as it would distribute the products through its branches.
