After operating for more than four decades, Otto & Sons was approached by Ray Kroc who had recently opened the first McDonald’s restaurant in Illinois.

Otto & Sons started expanding its business in 1973 when it launched its first meat plant that produced high- volume of meat in Chicago. Since its primary client was McDonald at the time, it also opened another unit that was meant to supply all other clients with fresh and quality beef known as Glenmark.
