OSI Group’s Journey to Success

The success story of the OSI Group began a century ago. Otto Kolschowsky saw a business opportunity and took advantage of it. He founded a butcher shop and a meat market in the year 1909 and named it Otto and Sons. It was located in Chicago, USA. The current growth that is exhibited in OSI Group started in the year 1955 when Otto and Sons was chosen as the first supplier of Hamburger to McDonald’s. Over time, the company opened a branch that served McDonald’s only. During the 70’s, Sheldon Lavin came on board. It did not take long for him to be a third partner to the then Otto and Son. His contributions to this company cannot be understated. He aided the company to get to global heights.

In the year 1975, Otto and Sons changed its name to IOS Group. When one of the Otto brothers sold his shares, Sheldon became a half partner. Upon the retirement of the other Otto brother, Sheldon earned 100 percent of the voting rights. In the 1980s, OSI group started to expand. It opened branches in Germany, Austria, Spain as well as Brazil. At this moment also, the management saw it fit to open two more plants in the USA. The expansion did not stop there. In the 1990s, OSI Group opened branches in Poland, Mexico, Philippines, and China. The poultry operations to several continents began when we ushered the new millennium. A lot of acquisitions came with the Millennium among them in Australia where a beef company was bought.

The Bank of the Left – George Soros

The Bible alludes to the fact that God gave poor people to the rich and the rich people to the poor as a gift. It was God’s design that the poor would be helped by the rich and that by giving to the poor, the rich would never become greedy. The life of George Soros perfectly illustrates the wonderful things that can happen in this world when somebody blessed by riches finds the generosity to give wealth to those who do not have.George Soros has, according to Forbes.com, over $25 billion accumulated for his net worth. Most people may think Soros just keeps that money and hoards it away for his own personal use, but that is not the truth. Soros is a philanthropists who finds delight in giving his money away to worthy causes.One passion of Soros is aiding countries who have been destroyed by the economy of Communism. His plan is to aid them in transitioning from a broken people to a people who enjoy the wealth and prosperity that only capitalism can give.

According to Politico.com, in order to make that happen, George Soros founded the great non-profit known as the “Open Society Foundation”. Through this foundation, and remember this is not all of his giving, Soros has donated over $13 billion to countries who desperately need economic growth. Because of his help, again according to Politico.com, many of these countries have been able to reduce unemployment and create prosperity for more of its citizens.Soros not only seeks to better the employment of these countries but also their quality of living. Soros has donated to healthcare and economy and training and education and LGBTQ rights and woman’s rights and anything he deems makes a people a better people, and thus, a society a better society.

Soros has continued his own giving here in his home country of the United States. Soros is an entrenched liberal who is not afraid to speak his mind. His has been a hot and open critic of Donald Trump, whom he sees as evil embodied, according to Politico.Soros did everything in his power, and that allowed by law, to prevent Trump from making it to the White House. Soros backed Donald Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton, one hundred percent. To show his support, he gave the Democratic Party over $25 million to make her president. He even was going to go so far as to attend his first ever Democratic Convention to congratulate her on her nomination.Although her bid for president failed, Soros did not let that stop his liberal agenda. He continued backing leftist organizations such as Planned Parenthood Votes and Black Lives Matter.

Nathaniel Ru Targets the Youth

Nathaniel Ru is definitely an innovator that has proven that eating healthy can be fun. Sweetgreen is the restaurant that he has created, and he has become well known in schools. He has also been able to build an audience of consumers that are interested in music as well. He has been able to do this with the Sweetgreen Music Festival. It appears that Nathaniel Ru has targeted the youth because this is the generation that is most in need of a healthy alternative to fast food.

 

In America there are a lot of reports about obesity with young kids because many younger children are not very active. They have become a videogame and smartphone nation of children that spend a lot of time seated. When this is coupled with a bad diet of double cheeseburgers, pizzas and carbonated sodas it becomes obvious that this is a roadmap to obesity and a plethora of health problems.

Nathaniel Ru obviously isn’t going to save the world with Sweetgreen, but the fact that he wants to get farmers involved is a great first step towards a better menu for young adults. There is also a great marketing campaign that’s going on through technology that makes this company even more attractive.

It would be difficult for Nathaniel Ru to promote Sweetgreen if he wasn’t connecting to the youth through the technology that they have become accustomed to. He’s doing this and that is why he made sure that Sweetgreen would have an app that would make ordering much easier. This is definitely a vital part of the success of this franchise because many young adults are impatient. The lines are getting long at the Sweetgreen restaurants because this is one of the few healthy alternatives. People that get the chance to order online through their app will have access to a better pick up experience because they don’t have to wait in the long lines.

 

Nathaniel Ru has also captivated the youth by staying on top of innovations. He came up with the concept of a cashless restaurant for one of the Sweetgreen spots, and many of the young adults that are only carrying plastic in the form of credit or debit cards are pleased with this. Many of them will embrace this because it makes their eating environment safer. No one is looking to rob a cashless restaurant so safety is increased.
