The pizza company is now doing its part to ensure tasty pies don't get ruined as they travel from Domino's restaurants nationwide to their final destination.

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 Pizza (now just Domino's) started here in MI in the 1960s, when the state was the center of the automotive universe.

Domino's customers can nominate their town for pothole repairs on the Paving for Pizza website, and if selected, their city will "receive funds to help fix roads so pizzas make it home safely". Russell Weiner, president of Domino's U.S. explains, stated in a press release.

Domino's has even included a road condition meter on its website to show how pizzas are affected by mild, moderate, critical and catastrophic road conditions.

"Have you ever hit a pothole and instantly cringed?"

So far the pizza chain has helped four different municipalities all over the nation.

"Facing an already harsher winter than usual for DE, this is an opportunity to get additional money to stretch our city's limited resources", said Eric Norenberg, city manager of the town, on the website, Yahoo reported. Fouracre encourages Michiganders to enter the fray by nominating their communities with pizza-ruining potholes.

Fouracre declined to disclose specific grant details, but said they're "smaller", "not multi-million dollar" awards created to add on to pothole-fixing budgets. Towns that are selected by the company will receive funds to help fix roads "so pizzas make it home safely".

The fast food chain has already repaired roads in Burbank, California, Athens, Georgia, Milford, Delaware and Bartonville, Texas.
