Here are the extreme lengths Domino's are going to to stop your pizza getting ruined
Domino's has become such a stalwart of western society that it's hard to imagine life without it. Whether it's the 'Two for Tuesdays' deal that got you through the dark depths of winter at college, the Jesus tears that are their delicious pots of garlic sauce, or that cardboard-y, greasy smell that you crave when hungover - Domino's serves a purpose that few places are able to cater for and we should be grateful that they're around. In this chopping and changing world we live in, Domino's have kept delivering the same pizzas to our door with little-to-no change.
However, it would be safe to say that, right now, nothing makes sense anymore. IHOP has changed its name to IHOB, Kim Jong-Un and Donald Trump are now BFF's and Domino's has decided to enter the world of pothole paving.
Yeah, you heard me right. Domino's is now a construction company alongside being an okay-ish pizza parlour.
The pizza place has decided to take it upon itself to mend a crumbling part of America's infrastructure and will now start to repair potholes. The company have branded this initiative 'Paving for Pizza' and they have so far managed to pave more than 200 potholes in the US.
But why are they rolling out this scheme? Well, they don't want their pizzas being unnecessarily jolted while on their journey to your door.
"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," Russell Weiner, president of Domino's USA, said in a statement. "We don't want to lose any great-tasting pizza to a pothole, ruining a wonderful meal. Domino's cares too much about its customers and pizza to let that happen."
I mean, it's hard to argue with the logic here. Even if you're not a fan of Domino's, it may be worth submitting a request for your local city so that you can get your Papa John's without the pepperoni all sliding to one side or the cheese sticking to the lid of the box.
You can a submit your city as the next project over at PavingForPizza.com and the company claim that they still have plans to fix additional potholes in additional cities.
The first cities to accept Domino’s repair work were Burbank, California; Milford, Delaware; Bartonville, Texas; and Athens, Georgia. According to the pizza company, they have spent 29 hours in total to repair a lot of roads.
"Facing an already harsher winter than usual for Delaware, this is an opportunity to get additional money to stretch our city’s limited resources," Eric Norenberg, Milford’s city manager said.
So, Americans, your roads are getting fixed by a pizza parlour and not your government. Sometimes you can't help but wonder where your taxes are going, can you?
