Jim Delligatti, creator of McDonald's Big Mac, dies at 98
Michael James Jim Delligatti, the McDonald's franchisee who created the Big Mac nearly 50 years ago and saw it become perhaps the best-known fast-food sandwich in the world, died Monday at home in Pittsburgh. Delligatti, who according to his son ate at least one 540-calorie Big Mac a week for decades, was 98. He was often asked why he named it the Big Mac, and he said because Big Mc sounded too funny, his son Michael Delligatti said.
