One Source Retail (OSR) was started in 1998 as subsidiary of a St. Louis-based construction company. Originally created to build fixtures for one retail client, Lids, OSR successfully built a core competency in fixture manufacturing and project management.
After a successful management career in Fortune 500 Corporations (Quaker Oats, Frito-Lay, Dean Foods and Aurora Foods), Mike Hojnacki was eager to make the transition to small business ownership. In 2004, Mike purchased One Source Retail. At that same time, Mike became an Area Developer for a national franchise company.
Mike’s experience helping franchisees open new stores led him to change the focus of OSR. Instead of just providing fixtures to retailers, the focus shifted into being a strategic partner to Franchisors and the franchise industry. Since 2005 OSR has provided a Store-In-A-Box to national franchise companies, delivering everything that a new franchisee needs to open a store, all on one truck. OSR has shipped over 500 stores-in-a-box to nearly all 50 states, Puerto Rico and Japan.
