Pink’s Hot Dogs owner Richard Pink told CBS reporters why Betty White meant so much to him and why he wanted to pay a special tribute to the Hollywood icon: “Betty White helped open one of our locations on the City Walk ten years ago, by putting a hot dog in front of Pink’s and saying, ‘I like it naked! I like it when nothing is on it – just the beef and a bread roll. “
