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. The American pizza chain announced on Monday that it will help "smooth the ride home" for deliveries by making pothole repairs in towns nominated by their customers. Images provided by Domino's show a pothole fix truck emblazoned with the chain's logo and the slogan, "Bad roads shouldn't happen to good pizza".

"Paving for Pizza" is determined to help cities across the country repave potholes. "We appreciated the extra Paving for Pizza funds to stretch our street fix budget as we addressed more potholes than usual", the city manager told Domino's.

Former Detroit Lion Nate Burleson can relate, but one popular pizza chain is geared up to fill in potholes to prevent your pizza from being ruined before you even walk through your door.

To show the damage crummy roads can do to your pie, the website shows in-box footage of pizza getting pretty messed up under a variety of road conditions. The trucks sent out to the jobs include a slogan that reads "bad roads shouldn't happen to good pizza".

More than 50 potholes have been fixed between the four towns.

The company said customers can nominate their town for pothole repairs at pavingforpizza.com.

A "third-party organization" will vet ZIP codes based on their popularity and the municipalities' receptiveness to the program, she said.
