Big Mac was invented in the US city of Pittsburgh
In the aftermath of 1967, the owner of a small franchise named Jim "MJ" Delligatti created a cheeseburger consisting of two platter of ground beef, lettuce, sour cucumbers, American cheese, chopped onion, special "Mac Sauce" sauce and double-cut sesame biscuits . This burger was first available in just three locations in Pittsburgh, but thanks to the enthusiasm of the owners the following year expanded throughout the United States.
Medium cakes have a purely functional role
According to the original Delligatti design, the middle cakes are used exclusively to make the sauce, and the sandwich would not become a big mess.
Big Mac is used as a measurement unit for the world economy
The well-known newspaper The Economist formulated in 1986 an indicator called "Big Mac Index" as an easy way to track international currency exchange by comparing the prices of Big Macs in each country. An appreciated magazine for this tool says it is probably the most accurate financial indicator based on some foods.
Big Mac did not always call it that
When this hamburger became available to customers for the first time, his name was "Big Attraction", which was very similar to a competing hamburger who was then called Big Boy Burger. After the unsuccessful nicknames "Aristocrat" and "Blue Ribbon Burger", the young 21-year-old secretary at McDonald's's headquarters, Esther Glickstein Rose, came up with the name Big Mac, which was finally accepted.
In the United States there is a museum devoted exclusively to Big Mac
The truth is! In the Pennsylvania state of Pennsylvania, there is a museum dedicated to this beloved hamburger, and hamburger lovers can visit him since 2007. The museum also has a restaurant function, and it was opened by Mike Delligatti, son of inventor Big Mac. Also, it has the biggest Big Mac in the world, which is a huge incredible 4.3 x 3.7 meters!
