Two all beef patties please, and hold the pickle. Actually, make that a Quarter Pounder with cheese, and add bacon to that. Seriously, you thought you were at McDonald’s? Not necessarily, because McDonald’s wouldn’t be what it is today without good ol’ OSI Industries. That’s right, OSI Industries began its world wide quest in humblest way, well over a century ago in the great city of Chicago.
Next time you’re in a McDonald’s, make sure you remember the name “Otto”. Mr. Otto Kolschowsky is the main man in the history of the great McDonald’s restaurant story. Otto began his small meat market in the early 1900’s and served his fellow Americans faithfully. It wasn’t long before he met Ray Kroc, the man who launched McDonald’s into world fame. Otto supplied all of the beef. History is indeed delicious.
Since those days long ago, OSI Industries has become a world leader in producing food. It is a success story worthy of the silver screen. Not only does OSI Industries still produce the finest beef, but the pork and poultry markets have been added to their menu. With the rest of the food pyramid mixed in, OSI Industries has become a complete and balanced meal provider to the world.
A creative staff of over 20,000 people all around the world work in harmony to create and provide a myriad of different food products for the rest of the world. Whether it is premium ingredients for fine restaurants and/or delis and grocery stores, OSI has the power, people and prowess to provide. There really is no limit to what can be created with food these days, and the talented people at OSI are ever creating new tastes and new ways to deliver to the masses all around the globe. They’re taking orders now for whatever you have a hankerin’ for.
Headquartered in Aurora IL., not far from Otto’s original meat market, OSI continues to grow and expand their product list. The culinary arts have met and merged with a world wide company, and the flavors are flying off of the shelf.

Most people know that companies backed by the Better Business Bureau are reliable, but there are some companies who deserve recognition above and beyond the BBB’s basic approval rating. To fully recognize those businesses that exhibit an outstanding sense of ethical practice, the BBB presents their Torch Award. In 2017 a locally-based Illnois company known as Aloha Construction won this prestigious award. Based in Lake Zurich, Illinois, this family owned company has been servicing the counties in Illinois and Southern Wisconsin since 2008.
The fact that Aloha Construction received the BBB’s Torch Award is no small feat since this agency uses an independent panel of judges who assess companies on six different aspects of service and performance. As a construction company that specializes in repairing damage caused by hail, high winds and storms, the team at Aloha offers their customers payment plans designed to fit their budgets. This is in keeping with the criteria of maintaining organizational procedures that unifies the company’s mission and provides clarity of purpose. This is just one of the aspects Aloha Construction met when reviewed for the BBB’s Torch Award.
The first two key aspects considered by the BBB for this award pertain to ethical practices as they relate to a company’s personnel. Leaders are expected to uphold high levels of ethical practices in both their business and personal lives as examples for their employees. Founded by Dave Farbaky, Aloha Construction has always employed contractors who are insured and licensed within their chosen fields. They also have their siding contractors go through a specialized training program before welcoming them as part of their team and business family.
The prestigious Torch Award is also given to a company based on their efforts to give back to their community. In order to better facilitate the needs of the communities they serve, Aloha Construction has a branch known as the Dave Farbaky Foundation, through which they partner with area programs to help provide hope to needy families. Through this foundation, they were able to bring joy to a single mother and her daughters by giving them the chance to go on a shopping spree for toys.
