The chain is filling potholes and bellies.
Pizza is already an internet sensation. The culinary icon that is revered as godly, based on the reveling of its ever-growing fandom, has received a big boost from one of its most notorious pushers. Domino's Pizza is bringing new meaning to the term "street cred". The corporate chain is healing the streets, literally. Construction workers have been deployed to fill the potholes in Milford, Delaware. Yes, this is for real. No, they do not use their product as the filling. This effort is said to be inspired by the chain's desire to protect your pies from the violence of pothole-riddled roads. The dangers of such a trek include, but are not limited to, untopped toppings, flipped pies and lopsided filling.
ABC reports the company's statement: "Potholes, cracks, and bumps in the road can cause irreversible damage to your pizza during the drive home from Domino's. We can't stand by and let your cheese slide to one side, your toppings get un-topped, or your boxes get flipped. So we're helping to pave in towns across the country to save your good pizza from these bad roads."
The city's manager, Eric Norenberg, has officially expressed gratitude for the company. He publicly acknowledges the city budget's lack of funds for the issue and his appreciation for the restaurant's initiative.
If you're thinking, "Wait, I love pizza and my city's roads are also shite," reach out to get the hookup. Any American city can be nominated for this street healing by entering its postal code on pavingforpizza.com. The selected cities will receive funding for repairs.
Extending this to Canada would be blessed. Have you ever been to Montreal?
