One of the most interesting things about business is that there are some organizations that make it their sole purpose to promote themselves. You will see their advertisements on TV, Internet, billboards and everywhere else. Then there are companies who slowly and gradually make their way to the hearts of customers, for a long time. Customer satisfaction is their only goal and they do everything in their power to do so. OSI Group McDonalds happens to be one of the latter. In fact, it doesn’t just happen to be one of the latter, it happens to be the most well established organization in the industry.
Most people do not even notice that the finest quality of the foods and ingredients that they’ve been consuming since years, is produced by OSI Group. With 20,000 employees at 65 facilities in 17 countries, OSI Group McDonalds continues to rise. Although the company’s headquarters is located in Aurora, Illinois, but the company has an impressive, and a far more global reach in 17 countries all over the world. That means OSI Group McDonalds provides food and ingredients of the finest quality, along with jobs, to 17 countries in the world and it doesn’t just end here. Under the guidance of the CEO of OSI Group, Sheldon Lavin and President David McDonald, the company is always looking at opportunities to expand its business. Just recently, after purchasing a controlling stake of Baho Food, a Dutch company that has subsidiaries throughout Germany and the Netherlands, OSI Group has proved that global domination is now within its grasp.
If you are thinking that the global domination is the only achievement of OSI Group McDonalds, you are wrong. OSI continues to prove itself domestically as well. In June 2016, OSI purchased a food plant in Chicago that was about to shut down. Tyson Foods owned the plant and shutting it down would have cost the local community almost 500 jobs. But with a staggering amount of $7.4 million, OSI Group McDonalds purchased it and not just that, they also asked the previous workers if they still wanted to continue working there. Impressive, indeed!
