McDonald’s Is Testing Different Big Mac Sizes In Select Markets
Big changes for the iconic Big Mac

Big Mac 4

McDonald’s is testing bigger and smaller versions of their “classic” Big Mac in select markets in their continued effort to revive their business. For as much flak as I’ve given McDonald’s in the past, I actually think that this is a good idea on their part. The company says it’s testing a “Grand Mac” and “Mac Jr.” in the Central Ohio and the Dallas areas, and will see how they perform before deciding on a national roll-out.

“We carefully created the Grand Mac and Mac Jr. to pay homage to the original Big Mac. Our goal is always to prepare the best-tasting burgers to meet our customers’ expectations.” Chad Schafer, senior director of culinary innovation for McDonald's USA

The Grand Mac comes on a bigger bun and features two 2.7 ounce patties, which makes it a one-third-pound sandwich. The Mac Jr. however is basically a Big Mac with one beef pattie and the middle bun removed. The former is selling for $4.89, and the latter is priced between $2.39 and $2.59, depending on the location.

Testing is currently taking place in about 130 restaurants across Central Ohio and in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, for a total of nearly 500 restaurants. The limited-time offer lasts through June 6 in Central Ohio. Hopefully these “Macs” will make it to McDonald’s restaurants nationwide. What do you think of McDonald’s possibly adding newer Big Mac sizes to their current menu? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.
