The inventor of Big Mac passes away at 98

Michael “Jim” Delligatti, who invented the Big Mac, has passed away at an age of 98.

Delligatti was the first one to introduce the Big Mac when he came up with the item back in 1967. It was served in his Uniontown, Pennsylvania franchise.

It soon went on to become one of the most recognized items in the McDonald’s menu in no time. Delligatti had earlier revealed that McDonald’s were hesitant to have it on the menu initially. The menu item consists of two beef patties on a sesame-seed bun with a special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions.

Big Mac has a museum

The item even has a museum dedicated to it in Pennsylvania and it holds the World’s Biggest Big Mac replica. The Museum was opened by Delligatti and his family back in 2007.
