Big Macs


The Grand Mac and Mac Jr. are being tested in Central Ohio and Dallas/Fort Worth through June 6.

McDonald’s is testing smaller and larger versions of the iconic Big Mac, which are currently being tested in two markets, Central Ohio and Dallas/Fort Worth, through June 6.

The Grand Mac is a super-sized version of a Big Mac. It has the same base ingredients as a traditional Big Mac (two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun), but with a larger bun and a third pound of beef, while the original has one-fifth pound of beef. The Mac Jr. is a single-layer Big Mac, for easier eating on-the-go, reports Columbus Business First.

Scott Nickell, president of the McDonald’s Central Ohio co-op, said in a press release that customers have requested “different ways to enjoy their Big Macs.” Columbus is also a noted test market for McDonald’s.
