SAY HELLO TO HIS LITTLE FRIEND: TONY BOSELLI'S GOOD BURGER
Published August 19, 1998
The 93 McDonald's restaurants in Northeast FL and Southeast GA have begun selling the "Boselli Burger," named after Jaguars OL Tony Boselli, according to Earl Daniels of the FLORIDA TIMES-UNION. The burger, which is the company's "largest sandwich" and sells for $1.99, marks the first food item named for a professional athlete in Jacksonville. Local McDonald's franchise Owner Gary Grimes: "The burgers are already generating excitement in the stores. We have hit a triple, if not a home run." The "Boselli Burger" is made of three hamburger patties on "a big bun with American and Monterrey jack cheeses, mayonnaise, lettuce, tomatoes and onions." Daniels reports that the burger will be sold through at least December. If the team makes the playoffs, sales could extend into January (FL TIMES-UNION, 8/18). In Chicago, Steve Rosenbloom writes that the burger also comes with a "defibrillator" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 8/19).
