Domino's is helping to repair potholes so your pizza stays perfect

Customers can nominate their local highways online

Potholed roads are a big problem. They can dent your car, burst your tires, cause serious injuries to cyclists--and (heaven forbid) cause irreparable damage to your pizza, says Domino's.

The brand's latest marketing ruse is to ally itself to the cause of the many people who fume about unrepaired roads in the U.S.: it's asking customers to nominate their local roads for repair at a website, If their town is selected, the customer will be notified and the city will receive funds to help repair roads. 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. Altogether, there are 20 grants to be handed out.

The campaign, by CP&B, is a follow up to last year's launch of "carryout insurance" for pizzas by Domino's, with a promise to replace your pie if anything untoward befalls it. While, like that campaign, it's mainly fun PR, the road paving promise adds an element of giving back to the community as well.

While Domino's says it's not planning to expand the scehme internationally at present, we think it has global potential: the U.K. in particular is suffering from an unprecedented number of potholed roads.
