OSI Group is also one of the biggest employers boasting of a workforce of more than 20,000 employees working in their different facilities.

Transforming retail brands and restaurant chains

When Otto Kolchowsky opened the first butcher shop in Chicago, he aimed to supply the residents with high-quality meat. But his business expanded exponentially, and he began selling meat in wholesale to restaurants and supermarkets. In the 1950s, his company entered into an exclusive agreement with the McDonald’s chain of restaurants to become the sole supplier of hamburgers.

When Sheldon joined the food company in the early 1970s, he helped them to expand to overseas markets. Their target was to supply value-added products to markets outside the U.S. Today, OSI serves a broad customer base including restaurants and supermarkets where they supply their products.

Most of the retail brands and restaurants and leveraging on OSI’s capabilities and their global presence to provide quality food products to their customers.

GreenSky Credit grows by focusing on doing what works better than anyone else

GreenSky Credit has emerged as one of the top-growing companies in the fintech industry. And this has happened amid a collapsing landscape for many of the players within the sector. While OnDeck and Lending Club have crashed and burned in a heap of toxic ashes, GreenSky has soared, reaching a valuation of more than $5 billion and doing about that number of new loans every year.

Making it work by doing what works

The problem with so many of the Pollyannas of the fintech sector was their starry-eyed adherence to business models that had virtually no chance of ever working. While going after social-justice oriented goals may seem appealing for those who would like to change the world, such philosophies rarely turn out well in the ruthless global marketplace.

OnDeck and Lending Club thought that they could change the world too, that they would be the ones who would finally impose rigorous equality among all of the lending industry’s clients. Why couldn’t homeless transients who had never held a job own a 5,000-square-foot mini mansion? And for that matter, why couldn’t people with felony records and no income be extended small business loans on the same terms as prime borrowers? These were the questions that perplexed the founders and executives of many of GreenSky Credit’s wayward competitors. And these riddles would ultimately be answered by the age-old ruthless and decisive method, testing them in the free market. The resulting short-bus cliff dive is a matter of record now.

But David Zalik and GreenSky Credit had a far more sober and clear-sighted view. Zalik decided that GreenSky would concentrate only on proven lending strategies. Rather than trying to reshape the industry to some twisted Marxian image, Zalik would use technology to do more of what was proven to work. By following this strategy, GreenSky Credit was able to quickly impress lenders across the nation, easily convincing them to partner with the company in extending loans to borrowers who, on average, had FICO scores in the 760-plus range.

The result has been a company that gets a 6 percent fee from retailers while receiving a 1 percent annual carrying fee from lenders. The firm’s success continues unabated.

Matt Badiali and investment in Freedom Checks

Americans are always looking for good investment opportunities. The opportunities are so many judging by what is always on the adverts. However, the biggest challenge is about having investment opportunities that are meant to help the investor. Most investment opportunities we see on the adverts are not genuine. Some will only take you money, and you will never get any return. There are other good investment opportunities that we can benefit from if we are keen on making the right investment choices. One thing we need to note as investors are that we should not judge an idea by looking at the face of it only. Investors should be diligent people who will bring the surface and verify the authenticity of a program.

One of the ideas that have been very lucrative in 2018, but many people did not benefit from it due to fear of losing the money is the Freedom Checks. This idea is one of those that have the potential to generate huge amounts of money in a short time.

Matt Badiali introduced the Freedom Checks idea in a viral video which was very controversial. Some people thought that idea was meant to too good to be true. Matt Badiali went ahead to prove that he was right about the idea. People who invested in the strategy he was advocating for have made huge returns.

The Freedom Checks is a concept that is based on investors making huge returns by investing in businesses known as Master Limited partnerships (MLPS). MLPs are mainly companies that deal with oil and gas production. By law, they are exempted from taxation under statute 26-F of the internal revenue. These businesses are required to engage in the exploration and production of natural resources found in the United States. According to Matt Badiali of Freedom Checks, these companies will be giving out huge payout to their investors because of the huge revenue they will create in coming days. Due to the low production of oil products in the Middle East, United States is going to concentrate on the internal production of oil and gas instead of waiting for the foreign companies to export theirs.

TeenSafe: Defensive Driving Techniques

TeenSafe is an application that allows parents to monitor and discover what their teens driving habits are like. Statistics show that teens are the largest group to experience a fatal crash when it comes to distractions while driving. It’s no secret that parents worried about their teen drivers and especially their use of their smartphone when behind the wheel. It’s very important to teach your child defensive driving techniques. There are a list of driving education courses teens can access online, however, they may not provide defense and self-awareness techniques need when they get on the road. It’s much more than just passing a test and understanding the rules.


Now several organizations have begun to offer driving instructions that also involve defensive techniques. It’s been found that driver’s ed is not teaching drivers how to maneuver on water nor are they showing teens how to safely drive in dangerous conditions. This also includes dealing with and negotiating dilemmas that can arise when it comes to traffic. Throughout all of these situations, young drivers must understand how to react when confronted with these issues while on the road. A panicky driver can create a dangerous situation and possibly a fatal crash. When a teen has proper knowledge and the know how to handle these experiences they will become a better driver.


Often times parents do not have access to the driving courses to show teens how to navigate through these problems. What they can do is take their teen to an open parking lot after bad weather and teach them how to handle their car during this kind of weather. They can also help them with decision-making regarding sliding or emergency skidding. A defensive driving checklist looks like this:


Abs braking

Keeping a safe distance

Handling a vehicle and bad weather


Passing and changing lanes

Vehicle emergencies


The TeenSafe application is designed to give parents peace of mind. They get to know that their child is obeying the rules while they are driving. It is an efficient monitoring service that keeps parents up-to-date on how and when your child accesses their smartphone and they are on the road.
