Domino's Pizza offering to fill in potholes nominated by customers

Domino's Pizza offering to fill in potholes nominated by customers”

Michigan's roads, not so much, as you've probably heard us complain about (it does allow us to give the suspensions of the cars we test a thorough shakedown, though). It's not just a MI problem, though. America's infrastructure needs all the help it can get.

"Potholes, cracks, and bumps in the road can cause irreversible damage to your pizza during the drive home from Domino's", Domino's website says.

Have you ever been driving your pizza home and you either get into an accident or hit a pothole, destroying your pizza?

The towns chosen will get money to fix their crumbling roads and ensure the integrity of pizza remains in tact, the company said. The animal-rights group told the local paper at the time, "We think people would be upset to learn road repairs were a direct result of cruelty to chickens", to which then-mayor Pamela Torliatt responded that she would not participate in a "game of chicken over our pothole paving". Fair warning: It's gruesome. Domino's Pizza is asking customers to nominate their town for pothole repairs.

Former Detroit Lion Nate Burleson can relate, but one popular pizza chain is geared up to fill in potholes to prevent your pizza from being ruined before you even walk through your door.

Domino's has already been working with four municipalities to help fix potholes on roads, including Bartonville, Texas, Milford, Delaware, Athens, Georgia, and Burbank, California.

It's also an opportunity for some marketing for Domino's. The company is going town to town, fixing potholes that can put your precious pies at risk.
