Initially, the name of the current huge company was Otto &Sons started by Otto Kolschowsky. It began as a small meat shop that expanded to different areas to be referred to as Otto & Sons in 1928. Otto& Sons gained an impressive reputation for providing high-quality meats in the local area. Some decades after, McDonald’s chose Otto & Sons to supply them with fresh beef for their hamburgers. The business grew and opened a new branch which was dedicated to serving McDonald’s. In 1970, Sheldon came into the picture as the company’s financial consultant.
Otto & Sons was doing okay after the deal they made with McDonald’s, but they had insufficient capital to keep up with the supplying. Sheldon rejected the offer made by the bank of owning Otto & Sons. He concluded that it was best to become the firm’s financial consultant than a business partner. In 1975, Otto Kolschowsky decided to retire, and he left Sheldon as one of the co-partners of the business. Otto’s two sons were the other co-partners of Otto & Sons. After awhile Otto & Sons became the current OSI Group. The organization has since then grown continuously to great extents.
