"We know that feeling is heightened when you're bringing home a carryout order from your local Domino's store", Russell Weiner, president of Domino's U.S., said in a statement. "So we're helping to pave in towns across the country to save your good pizza from these bad roads".

"We don't want to lose any great-tasting pizza in a pothole, running a wonderful meal". For its latest move to get your pizza dollar, however, Dominos has something slightly more ambitious in mind, namely public infrastructure projects.

Domino's says it's "is saving pizza, one pothole at a time", with an effort aimed at fixing potholes nominated by customers. If selected, "the city will receive funds to help fix roads so pizzas make it home safely", the press release stated.

The fixed pot holes are then stamped with a Domino's logo and the motivational slogan "Oh yes we did". "I was ecstatic, I didn't think it was possible but Domino's delivered on their promise to fix potholes in Bartonville", Montgomery said. The accompanying website also has, aside from a nomination form and carryout special, a "pothole impact meter" with video to show what happens to a pizza from an in-box camera on varying road conditions.

Domino's has kicked off the campaign by repairing roads in Bartonville, Texas; Milford, Delaware; Athens, Georgia; and Burbank, California.

You can nominate your town here. On May 3, a Domino's spokesperson said the discovery was "an extremely isolated incident, confined to a single store".
