PITTSBURGH (AP) –  The Pittsburgh-area McDonald’s franchisee who created
the Big Mac nearly 50 years ago has died.

McDonald’s spokeswoman Kerry Ford confirmed that Michael "Jim" Delligatti  
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. He also created the Egg McMuffin
breakfast sandwich in 1970.
