Jim Delligatti, inventor of the McDonald's Big Mac, dies at 98
Jim Delligatti, a McDonald's franchisee who in 1967 introduced the Big Mac sandwich that quickly spread throughout the world's biggest restaurant chain, has died. After Delligatti started selling the Big Mac in his Uniontown, Pennsylvania, franchise, McDonald's introduced it nationally in 1968. On the product's 40th anniversary, the company said it was selling 550 million Big Macs a year. McDonald's was initially reluctant to embrace the Big Mac, according to Delligatti.
