Domino’s, the pizza company that now moonlights as an unlikely hero of U.S. roadways, recently announced additional Infrastructure Weeks, extending its paving program to one community in each state.

To date, the company has received more than 137,000 nominations from 15,275 zip codes across the nation.

Paving with Pizza

In mid-June, Domino’s announced that it was offering governments help with fixing potholes, in an effort to save its precious pizzas from damage en route to their final destination. The company launched an interactive website, pavingforpizza.com, for fans to request help from the pizza purveyor.

Domino’s, the pizza company that now moonlights as an unlikely hero of U.S. roadways, recently announced additional Infrastructure Weeks, extending its paving program to one community in each state.

Most recently, paving began in Tuesday (Aug. 28) in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, with the help of one of the pothole grants. The amounts for pothole grants have not been disclosed, but communities are welcoming the relief.

“Potholes in Northeastern Pennsylvania are as prevalent as our region's love for pizza,” said Tony George, mayor of Wilkes-Barre. “I am incredibly grateful to Domino's assistance in repairing and patching our roads.”

New Orleans and Des Moines, Iowa, are among 10 cities to accept the company’s offer. Grants have already funded projects in Burbank, California; Athens, Georgia; and Bartonville, Texas.

"We knew that people were passionate about pizza, but we discovered that Americans are also very passionate about potholes," said 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 want to submit their own nomination can do so at pavingforpizza.com, until Dec. 31.
