Following the nationwide introduction of the Mac Jr. and Grand Mac burgers, McDonald’s USA will be giving away 10,000 limited edition bottles of beloved Big Mac Special Sauce on January 26 at participating restaurants nationwide. Customers can find Big Mac Special Sauce bottles in their market by downloading the Big Mac Special Sauce Finder iMessage app that highlights the nearest restaurant where the limited edition bottles will be available.*
When in restaurant, customers must share the secret code “There’s a Big Mac for that” to a crew member or designated representative for a chance to get their hands on one of the exclusive bottles that will be handed out on a first come, first serve basis.** Those who aren’t in a location where the bottles are being given away will have a chance to win a bottle on January 26 by following and participating in McDonald’s live giveaway on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. For the first time ever, McDonald’s will be hosting a live giveaway across each of these channels.
The first bottle of Big Mac Special Sauce given away in the U.S. was gifted to the Delligatti family in memory of Michael “Jim” Delligatti. Jim shared McDonald’s commitment to listening to customers and changing expectations by doing something never done before – creating a bigger burger and introducing the Big Mac in his Uniontown, Penn. restaurant. As a sign of that commitment, McDonald’s gifted bottle #1 of 10,000 to the Delligatti family – four generations of family members who run restaurants in Pennsylvania and North Carolina. The bottle will join the permanent collection at the Big Mac museum Jim Delligatti founded in North Huntingdon, PA.
“Speaking on behalf of the entire Delligatti family, we’re pleased to accept this first bottle of limited edition Big Mac Special Sauce in honor of my father Jim Delligatti. Though he’s no longer with us, we know his legacy will live on with the Big Mac sandwich. He knew customers wanted a bigger burger, so he spent weeks developing the new burger, experimenting with different buns and creating the Special Sauce,” said Michael Delligatti. “He was all about giving the customer what they wanted, so we were glad to hear McDonald’s is continuing that tradition by giving away bottles of the iconic Big Mac Special Sauce. It’s definitely one of the ingredients that sets the burger apart from others and I know how excited some McDonald’s customers will be when they receive their own bottle.”
