OSI Group and McDonalds
OSI Group McDonalds Trust the Leadership of Nicole Johnson-Hoffman
Nicole Johnson-Hoffman serves as Chief Sustainable Officer as of July 11th, 2017 for OSI Group McDonalds Senior Vice President of the Business Unit. The international meat processing company and restaurant franchise has a historical relationship involving a supplier contract over 60 years ago. The companies entered an agreement before McDonald’s restaurant opened in Des Plaines, IL. During that time, OSI was Otto & Sons, a meat shop found by Otto Kolchowsky in the 1900s, in Chicago. In the mid-1970s, the family business changes its name to OSI Industry and multiple partnerships resulted in changing it again to OSI Group, LLC.
Food Business News announced Nicole Johnson-Hoffman has the responsibility of leading and continuing the company’s global sustainability strategy. Her leadership role includes collaboration with the suppliers, employees, stakeholders, and customers of OSI Group McDonalds. She is leading the team to achieve sustainable dimensions and improve the supply chain and business strategy for communities, consumers, and the environment. Nicole dedicates to serving both entities and building a lasting relationship working with her team to accomplish its goals of sustainability initiatives.
OSI Group McDonalds trust Johnson-Hoffman’s ability to lead after servicing the Business Unit of the fast food restaurant. Sheldon Lavin has a longer relationship with the franchise and owns an interest in OSI and all its subsidiaries and joint ventures. He was there in the beginning as a financial consultant and helped the business increase its revenue and expand in the US and to Europe. In the 1960s, the relationship between the meat supplier and franchise grew stronger after implementing a new technology machine. By the end of 1973, OSI had its first plant built in Chicago and provided job opportunities in the local area.
Since the agreement between OSI Group McDonalds, the largest global meat supplier gained other contracts with Yum, Papa John, Burger King, Starbucks, and Subway. McDonald’s founders Richard and Maurice McDonald sold the restaurant to Ray Kroc who acted as their franchise agent in 1955. Kroc trusted OSI and opened the doors for the meat supplier to experience international growth.
