News or Noise: Is Domino's paving for pizza?

July 25, 2018 11:35 PM

You've probably seen social media posts like this tweet from Trey saying, "Domino's is paying their own money to pave over potholes in cities because cities aren't taking responsibility."

He goes on to say, "so sad that a pizza chain is doing the government's job."


It sounds too good to be true so, News10NBC did some digging.  

According to the Domino's website, "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." 

Domino's website also claims they've fixed five potholes in Burbank, California; eight potholes in Bartonville, Texas; 40 potholes in Milford, Delaware; and fixed 150 square yards of road in Athens, Georgia.  

News10NBC contacted the company to see if any roads in the Rochester area were on their list.

Here's what we were told.

"We have not announced any winners of the paving grants yet and we are still taking nominations at"

We followed up with a few more questions and were told they will take nominations for another four weeks.

Domino's has 17 more grants to give out. They have not given a date as to when finalists will be announced but this story is news!
