Michael “Jim” Delligatti is the man who created the burger known as the BIG MAC nearly 50 years ago has died. He was 98 years old! 

The Pittsburgh-area McDonald’s franchisee died at home surrounded by his family on Monday night.

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.

Delligatti told The Associated Press in 2006 that Oak Brook, Illinois-based McDonald’s resisted the idea at first because its simple lineup of hamburgers, cheeseburgers, fries and shakes was selling well.

But Delligatti wanted to offer a bigger burger and it went over so well it spread to the rest of Delligatti’s 47 stores, then went national in 1968.

I can personally tell you that back in 1968, the Big Mac was delicious. Today? Not so much.

Our hearts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
