Foodservice Excellence & OSI Group

OSI Group is one of the leaders in custom-food solutions. This company was started by OttoKolschowski back in 1909. Yes, the company has been around for more than a century, but that says a lot about its character. At the time, this family-owned and operated business produced some of the best tasting beef in the region. The Midwest was its home, but its headquarters were constantly moved about through the years. Maywood, Illinois, and Oak Park, Illinois, were its first locations, but it’s now headquartered in Aurora, Illinois. This is a multi-billion dollar company. Forbes has ranked OSI Group many times on its prestigious lists for the most successful companies in America.
