Today, OSI Group McDonalds has over 60 processing facilities to supply the chains of fast-food restaurant franchises worldwide. The history of McDonald’s restaurant goes back to 1940 when Founders Richard McDonald and Maurice McDonald opened their family-owned diner in California. It was 15 years later when Franchise Agent Ray Kroc used his expertise to expand McDonald’s restaurant in other parts of the United States. The relationship he built with Richard and Maurice resulted in him gaining ownership of the franchise and corporation. It was the beginning of forming a partnership with the OSI Group.

He ran the business for many years in Chicago, Illinois until he retired and his sons gained control of running the business. OSI had many names changes beginning in 1928 as Otto & Sons to OSI Industries in 1975, and last, to OSI Group in 2004. It was during the 1950s when OSI Group McDonalds business relationship formed into a long-term meat processing contract. To this date, the companies remain partners and work together for expansion in global markets.
