Paving for pizza: Domino's wants to fill your town's potholes

And no, they're not kidding, they really are filling in potholes, although not at random, as towns need to be nominated on the Paving For Pizza website.

Through the program, Domino's has already helped improve roads in Bartonville, Texas; Milford, Del.; Athens, Ga., and Burbank, Calif. "Facing an already harsher winter than usual for DE, this is an opportunity to get additional money to stretch our city's limited resources", said Eric Norenberg, city manager of Milford, where Paving for Pizza filled 40 potholes over 10 hours.

Domino's Pizza (now just Domino's) started here in MI in the 1960s, when the state was the center of the automotive universe.

The pizza maker says that cracks, bumps, potholes and other road conditions can put good pizzas at risk after they leave the store, so Domino's is hoping to help smooth the ride home for its pizzas.

The initiative is cleverly titled "Paving for pizza".

The pizza chain has already started the road repairs, working with four municipalities including Bartonville, Texas, Milford, Del., Athens, Ga., and Burbank, Calif.

"We don't want to lose any great-tasting pizza in a pothole, running a wonderful meal". Starting today, Domino's is asking customers to nominate their town for pothole repairs at the Paving for Pizza website.

"Paving for Pizza" is a new initiative run by the chain to help cities and local government fix aging and deteriorated roads. "I was ecstatic, I didn't think it was possible but Domino's delivered on their promise to fix potholes in Bartonville", Montgomery said.
