Domino’s Pizza wants to repave your city’s potholes

"We can't let your cheese slide to one side, your toppings get untopped, or your boxes get flipped".

Russell Weiner, president of Domino's U.S., weighed in in a Monday news release: "Have you ever hit a pothole and instantly cringed?" Domino's will work with selected municipalities to fix roads that affect customers and their prized pizza. For its latest move to get your pizza dollar, however, Dominos has something slightly more ambitious in mind, namely public infrastructure projects.

The company launched "Paving for Pizza" on Monday and it's asking people to nominate their town for road repairs. If their town is selected, the customer will be notified and the city will receive funds to help fix roads so pizzas make it home safely.

IHOP changes name to IHOb (for now)
Speaking with CNN , President of IHOP Darren Rebelez stated, "We are definitely going to be IHOP ". If you guessed that the "b" stood for burgers, you would have been correct.

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. The trucks sent out to the jobs include a slogan that reads "bad roads shouldn't happen to good pizza". Their fixed potholes also carried a KFC logo in chalk that washed away after the first rainfall.

The company helped fill five potholes in Burbank, eight in Bartonville, 40 in Milford, and 150 square yards of roads in Athens.

No, they are not building the pizza highway (yet) but they are going around filling in potholes that their customers nominate as especially obnoxious, according to Yahoo! At a restaurant in Johnson City, health inspectors discovered rodent droppings on 14 trays of pizza dough. On May 3, a Domino's spokesperson said the discovery was "an extremely isolated incident, confined to a single store".
