The Big Mac Hits the Big 4-0
JOHN YDSTIE, host:
Texas restaurants are known for their big portions, but the double-patty burger comes from Uniontown, Pennsylvania. And our last word in business today is the Big Mac.
This week, it celebrated its 40th birthday. Since its invention in 1967, the Big Mac has become an American icon. Americans eat 550 million Big Macs every year. The burger is so famous, it has its own museum featuring, of course, the world's biggest Big Mac. It's 14 feet high and 12 feet wide. Luckily, it's not edible.
