Domino’s promised to save carryout pizza, one pothole at a time, with its Paving for Pizza program announced in June. Domino’s asked customers for their nominations and they delivered, submitting more than 137,000 nominations from 15,275 different zip codes in all 50 states. Customers submitted so many nominations, in fact, that Domino’s decided to expand the program to pave one community in each state.
Paving began yesterday in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania—one of the recent paving grant recipients. The following 10 cities across the country have also recently accepted a paving grant:
- Fitchburg, Massachusetts
- Des Moines, Iowa
- New Orleans, Louisiana
- Kinston, North Carolina
- Milwaukee, Wisconsin
- Hamtramck, Michigan
- Jackson, Mississippi
- Marion, Texas
- Grand Forks, North Dakota
- Havre, Montana
“We knew that people were passionate about pizza, but we discovered that Americans are also very passionate about potholes,” says Ritch Allison, chief executive officer of Domino’s. “The overwhelming response that customers had to the program will mean more pizzas arriving safely in communities across all 50 states.”
Customers who haven’t submitted a nomination yet may still do so by visiting pavingforpizza.com. Domino’s will accept nominations through December 31.
“Potholes in Northeastern Pennsylvania are as prevalent as our region’s love for pizza,” says Mayor Tony George. “I am incredibly grateful to Domino’s assistance in repairing and patching our roads.”
