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. (And no, not with mozzarella.)
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 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.)
