Domino’s Pizza is paving potholes; which ones do you want fixed?


Domino’s, a company that depends on road delivery and carryout for its pizzas, is taking matters in its own hands to ensure the safe arrival of your large pepperoni-mushroom.

It’s patching potholes.

Yep, the Paving for Pizza program has already repaired roads in four U.S. cities — Southern California’s Burbank, plus Bartonville, Texas; Milford, Delaware; and Athens, Georgia — and is looking for nominations for more.

“Have you ever hit a pothole and instantly cringed? We don’t want to lose any great-tasting pizza to a pothole, ruining a wonderful meal,” Russell Weiner, president of Domino’s USA, said in a statement.

But is Domino’s prepared for an influx of nominations from the Bay Area, where the street repair backlog is a zillion miles long?

Customers can enter their ZIP code at PavingforPizza.com and if their city is selected for a grant, Domino’s will send money to the municipality for repairs. (We would suggest the ghastly Bird Avenue in 95125, but San Jose crews finally did a quick patch job on that teeth-shattering mess a couple of weeks ago.)

In the meantime, if you’d like to support road repairs by doing something other than shelling out more in taxes, Domino’s is offering a smooth road carryout special, with three pizzas for $7.99 each.
