Hollywood’s Historic Pink’s Hot Dogs Begins Months-Long Closure Due to COVID-19

Owners hope to protect the health of Pink’s staff and customers with a closure that will last at least two months


Pink’s closed at the start of the pandemic from March until August, only to reopen with a new set of protocols in place that included a “front door ambassador” and “full-time sanitizer monitor” to clean and ensure the use of face masks, even adding delivery options and phone orders for the first time. And while the pandemic and rolling lockdown orders have kept many of the tourists away, Pink’s loyalists have continued to stand in line to order food for the past many months. Now, the time has come for a small hiatus in order to protect staff, ownership said on social media over the weekend. Owner Richard Pink will continue paying furloughed employees until unemployment insurance benefits kick in, according to CBS-2.
