In 1909, German immigrant Otto Kolscholsky opened a meat market and butcher shop in the city of Chicago. His business slowly expanded over the next five decades. Expansion included wholesale, location change, family and product line.
In the late 1920s, family role became vital. His business became known as Otto and Sons, and would bear that name until the mid 1970s. Today, the acronym OSI – somewhat reflects the original name of Otto and Sons, though OSI Industries is the official name. A turning point was gradual but steady for Otto Industries when they formed an alliance with the CEO of McDonald’s as it became a corporation. Otto and Sons was the first supplier of fresh ground beef to the McDonald’s chain in the mid 1950s, and this escalated as the franchise experienced exponential growth over the years to come.
One of the reported challenges facing suppliers to McDonald chains near and far involved delivering a similar product that was fresh and affordable regardless of distance. This challenge was aided with the development of cryogenic food processing in the early 1960s. This process involves the use of liquid nitrogen to quickly freeze food.
In the 1970s, Otto and Sons transitioned from a company that solely provided ground beef to the McDonald’s chain, to a company that provided ground beef to the McDonald’s chain and also established another brand providing food to the food industry at large. As a result of this, Otto and Sons took on the name, OSI Industries. It has always remained based in Chicago. In 2016 the company purchased the former Tyson Chicken Food Plant, which would be used to accommodate anticipated expansion for OSI Industries.
At present, OSI Industries has an estimated 20,000 employees. There are over 60 facilities in 17 countries besides the USA. It is in the top 100 companies for continued business growth according to a recent estimate by business industry insider, Forbes.

Whitney Wolfe Herd, founder of Bumble dating app is a rare executive in the industry of technology as most, if not all other dating apps are owned by men. Previously, she was a co-founder and vice president of marketing at Tinder. Her goals and visions have been to promote female empowerment in both the workplace and in the world of dating. Therefore, the creation of Bumble, a female-first dating application has facilitated the accomplishment of Whitney’s goals. On Bumble, when a match is struck, it is up to the woman to initiate the conversation, unlike other dating apps which require the man to make the first move. As a result of female-centric approach, it has grown to become one of the most used dating apps with around 30 million users.
As Whitney’s vision goes a long way, she has designed Bumble to be more than a dating app. With the introduction of Bumble Bizz and Bumble BFF on Bumble app, users can be able to also acquire business contacts and friends, alongside finding romantic partners.

She partnered with Patrick Aufdenkamp, a celebrity stylist, to design the Help Us Project totes for the non-profit business foray.
While Whitney Wolfe still attended Southern Methodist University, she designed a clothing line called Tender Heart, again in partnership with Mr. Aufdenkamp. This company’s objective was to create awareness on fair trading practices and fight against human trafficking. This clothing line was promoted by various buyers such as Intermix and Kitson who are retailers in the Los Angeles market.
As Whitney Wolfe still focused on progressing Bumble, she made time to meet a lover of her own. The two met through a mutual friend who introduced them to each other while they were on different ski trips. Now her husband, Michael Herd is a restaurateur and oil & gas investor. After the ski trip, they kept in touch and started dating. After two years, Michael proposed to her on his family’s ranch after a horse ride.
