Look around most cities in America today, and you will see dozens of restaurants within a few square miles serving high-quality food to its hungry customers. In one part of town, you may find a Burger King, Jack-In-The-Box, Del Taco, Wendy’s, Denny’s, Applebee’s, Roberto’s #5, Round Table Pizza and many restaurants.
And if you do drive to the other side of town, you’ll likely see the same restaurants on the way and when you arrive. What most people may not appreciate is the sourcing and logistics that make up the food chain that supplies each restaurant with the items it needs to serve them.
What most people don’t know or not appreciate is that this is a real miracle of innovation that can be traced all the way back to 1955 when the first McDonald’s opened for business and began its astronomical growth across the land. The only way McDonald’s growth could have happened and sustained is if the companies supplying the beef and other items didn’t innovate to keep up and that is what Otto & Sons did.
Otto & Sons, eventually becoming the OSI Group, developed the technologies, infrastructure as well as the quality and control that allowed McDonald’s to go from hundreds of suppliers to only four. It was this collaborative teamwork and devotion to innovation that drove McDonald’s and OSI Group growth and success, but it also pushed the rest of the restaurant industry to keep up.
You could say that on every corner where you see a restaurant serving high-quality food at a reasonable price, you have McDonald’s and the OSI Group and their dedication to innovation to thank. And even now the OSI Group is leading the way into the future with innovating new technologies and management techniques like the MPO (Meat, Poultry & Other) Global Trade platform that coordinates OSI’s production schedule with its customers so it can continue to grow and expand into new and changing markets. Like McDonald’s, the OSI Group is a true American business success story that has profoundly changed our world.
