According to a spokeswoman for his family, Michael James "Jim" Delligatti, the McDonald's franchise owner who created the Big Mac nearly 50 years ago, died on Monday at the age of 98. According to his son, until his health worsened the last couple of years, Delligatti ate at least one Big Mac a week. Delligatti invented McDonald's signature burger back in 1967 at his franchise in Uniontown, Pennsylvania to satisfy customers who wanted a bigger sandwich. The burger chain has gone on to sell billions of Big Macs around the world since then, in more than 100 countries.
