OSI Group McDonalds was formed in the mid-twentieth century originally under the name Otto and Sons, by some German immigrants in the Chicago area. Fortunately for the group and for the Chief Operating Officer David McDonald, the meat-packing company was formed almost at the same time as the world-famous McDonalds restaurant. So as McDonalds grew across the country and eventually the world, so did the OSI Group McDonalds. On top of this, the OSI Group leadership such as David had the credentials to back a world-famous group like McDonalds. David McDonald grew up in a farm in Northern Iowa and attended Iowa State University to get his bachelor’s degree in Animal Sciences. So David has become a very valuable asset to the OSI group McDonalds and their growth up until this point. View David McDonalds profile at Linkedin
Speaking of growth, OSI Group has expanded into Asia by forming the OSI Asia group in Taiwan, and by acquiring the Creative Foods Europe and Baho Group companies in their European expansion eastward. OSI group McDonalds changed their name from Otto and Sons in 1975 in order to become more professional appearing, and this has assisted their growth as well over the years.
The chief features of OSI Group business model that has made them so successful over the years is their focus on the approach to business and relationships. McDonald explains to us that “It is important to note that, within OSI, we value family. Our people and our customers are viewed as family. The products that we make should be good enough to serve to our respective families proudly.”
Another facet of the growth of OSI Group McDonalds is that they positioned themselves within the Chinese culture prior to its massive expansion over the past 30 years, so that they have been able to reap the rewards of the growth of the Chinese markets along with the Chinese.
