Domino's tackling potholes for the sake of pizza

Help save more pizzas! The chain says the "Paving for Pizza" program has already resulted in repairs in Burbank and three other communities nationwide.

"We don't want to lose any great-tasting pizza to a pothole, ruining a wonderful meal", said Russell Weiner, president of Domino's USA. "So we're helping to pave in towns across the country to save your good pizza from these bad roads".

The company is even showing customers what happens to pizzas during a delivery on rough roads, with the help of a camera set up inside a pizza box.

Dominos is no stranger to unusual publicity stunts, but those are usually tied to its vast ecommerce back-end, like its pizza robots or instant order pizza button.

Missing Air Force officer found 35 years later
He was last seen in Albuquerque , New Mexico, withdrawing US$28,500 (S$38,000) from his bank account at 19 different locations. Hughes told authorities he was depressed about being in the Air Force and made a decision to leave, creating a false identity.

The website for the effort includes video that allows users to see what four different road conditions can do to a pizza traveling to a customer. Their fixed potholes also carried a KFC logo in chalk that washed away after the first rainfall.

Bartonville town administrator Michael Montgomery praised the company's input.

Customers interested in nominating their town for a paving grant from Domino's can enter the zip code at pavingforpizza.com. At a restaurant in Johnson City, health inspectors discovered rodent droppings on 14 trays of pizza dough.

Fouracre declined to disclose specific grant details, but said they're "smaller", "not multi-million dollar" awards created to add on to pothole-fixing budgets.
