Domino’s Pizza, Inc. (NYSE: DPZ), the largest pizza company in the world based on global retail sales, has offered to fix roads of American towns and cities that have Domino’s locations to ensure a smoother ride for takeaway pizzas. The global pizza chain claimed that cracks, bumps, potholes and other road conditions can put good pizzas at risk after they leave the store.
"Have you ever hit a pothole and instantly cringed? We know that feeling is heightened when you're bringing home a carryout order from your local Domino's store. 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. "Domino's cares too much about its customers and pizza to let that happen."
People can nominate their towns and cities for a paving grant from Domino’s by entering their zip code at pavingforpizza.com. Customers will be notified if the city is selected and Domino’s will direct funds towards repairing roads.
Currently, Domino’s has reached a deal with four municipalities to help repair roads that directly affect their customers. The four towns are Bartonville, Texas; Milford, Delaware; Athens, Georgia, and Burbank, California. Potholes that have been paved by the pizza chain will be adorned with a Domino’s logo and the company’s slogan, “Oh yes we did.”
In celebration of this road pavement program, Domino’s has featured large three topping pizzas for $7.99 per pizza which can be ordered over the phone, in store, or on their website.
