Inventor of Big Mac Dies

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh-area McDonald’s franchisee who created the Big Mac nearly 50 years ago has died. Michael “Jim” Delligatti was 98.

Delligatti’s franchise was based in Uniontown when he invented the chain’s signature burger with two all-beef patties, “special sauce,” lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions on a sesame seed bun.

He lived to be 98, so McDonalds food did not send him to an early grave – assuming he ate it and not just sold it.
