Michael “Jim” Delligatti was a legendary franchisee within McDonald’s System who made a lasting impression on our Brand. In 1967, Jim introduced the Big Mac in his Uniontown, Penn. restaurant that has become an iconic sandwich enjoyed by many around the world. He is an exemplary individual who embraced the community and championed many causes and organizations that benefitted children. We will remember Jim as an insightful franchisee, a knowledgeable businessman, and an honorable gentleman who left a legacy of four generations of family members running great restaurants in Pennsylvania and North Carolina. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Delligatti family during this time.
