“Pink’s is the ultimate Mom and Pop hot dog stand. It’s a Hollywood love story, starting with Paul & Betty Pink selling hot dogs from a cart on a neighborhood street corner at La Brea & Melrose in 1939. “
“The Pink family is forever grateful to its loyal patrons, who have watched Paul & Betty’s hot dog cart, acquired with a $50 loan, turn into a Hollywood legend.”
