The famous inventor of the hamburger “big Mac” at McDonald’s restaurants Jim Delligatti died in the US at the age of 98 years. It was his idea about creating meals with two meatballs, which were approved by the management of the network of fast food without enthusiasm, and later became one of the symbols of the restaurant, reports The Wall Street Journal.
A Burger with two patties on a sesame seed bun was first introduced in the menu of McDonald’s in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania), which he directed, Delligatti. After the success at the local level leaders of the chain restaurants have adopted the idea of the big Burger and in 1968 introduced the “big Mac” throughout the United States.
Earlier, Delligatti told me that McDonald’s initially did not accept his idea because its simple lineup of burgers and so sold well. However, the inventor wanted to offer a bigger Burger. Later his idea was to the taste not only Americans, but fans of McDonald’s around the world.
“Big Mac” is a Burger consisting of two patties, slightly hot sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions between the three rolls. The original “big Mac” was worth 45 cents.
