Domino's Pizza fixing potholes

Domino's Pizza (now just Domino's) started here in MI in the 1960s, when the state was the center of the automotive universe. The company says it's already repaired roads in Bartonville, Texas; Milford, Delaware; Athens, Georgia; and Burbank, California, and the campaign will continue for three months throughout the summer.

When a town is selected, the customer is notified and the city receives funds to help with the repairs. Domino's says they'll come to their town and fix their potholes to "smooth the ride home" for their pizzas.

The towns chosen will get money to fix their crumbling roads and ensure the integrity of pizza remains in tact, the company said.

To show the damage crummy roads can do to your pie, the website shows in-box footage of pizza getting pretty messed up under a variety of road conditions.

The fixed pot holes are then stamped with a Domino's logo and the motivational slogan "Oh yes we did".

Customers have the ability to nominate their city on the Domino's website.

The good publicity will be a welcome change for Domino's following an incident last month in Tennessee.

The inspection report stated that officials inspected a dough delivery truck and found no traces of contamination before it dropped off the product at the restaurant. She said Domino's wasn't disclosing how much it was spending on the grants.
