Pink’s hot dog outlets are targetting casinos as future expansion sites.



Southern California icon is targeting gaming operations for future expansion

From a humble beachhead established in Hollywood more than seven decades ago, the storied hot-dog institution Pink’s is slating a national expansion, with a special emphasis on casinos.

“We are getting inquiries from licensees nationally. Typically, from operators in airports, amusement parks, casinos, cruise ships, or stadiums, but due to our success in Las Vegas and Southern California gaming houses, we are especially interested in casinos,” said Gloria Pink, co-owner of the Las Angeles-based chain.

Pink’s had great luck with a recent staged seven-location expansion, including forays next to the Planet Hollywood casino in Las Vegas, the Harrah’s Rincon Hotel & Casino in San Diego and the Hollywood Park Casino near Los Angeles.
