One food retailer that OSI Group has maintained a long-lasting relationship with is McDonalds. The first McDonalds joint was started by Roy Kroc in 1995. He was just an entrepreneur at the time and had talked with OSI to be his main suppliers of meat products. The partnership was at the time not official as McDonalds was just starting out.
Later on, Roy Kroc was able to make the partnership between OSI Group and McDonalds official when he purchased McDonalds from its owner. This way OSI Group McDonalds became a partnership. OSI Group McDonalds was responsible with transportation of food products to the different chains in the different parts of the country. McDonalds was quickly gaining recognition in the US, and it was opening up joints in various parts. OSI Group McDonalds had to deliver products to all these parts while at the same time maintain consistency and deliver sufficient items that can satisfy their clients.
