Luzerne County residents react to Domino's 'Paving for Pizza' campaign

(WOLF) -- There are pot holes nearly everywhere you look, plaguing drivers on their daily commute.

But Domino’s is stepping in to save the day, and its all for the sake of saving your pizza pie on the way to its destination.

The new campaign is called Paving for Pizza.

You can just go online, nominate your city, and Domino’s might just step in to fix some of those craters.

If there’s one thing most people can agree on, its complaining about road conditions no matter where they’re from.

“That street – I don’t know what street that is right there, but that is the most terrible street and I’m pretty sure its like a main entrance into the square,” Danielle Wilson, of Plymouth, said.

“Nanticoke has some of the worst roads in the valley. Main Street is bad. But I’ve got to give credit to our road crew down there, they are doing the best that they can,” Kevin Jones, of Nanticoke, said.

Local road crews could soon get some help with patching up those pesky pot holes, and its all thanks to Domino’s.

The pizza chain launched its Paving for Pizza campaign today – all for the sake of making sure your pizza stays in one piece on the drive home.

“Makes sense! If pizza gets there in one piece then we’re all happy,” Donald Clymer, of Wilkes-Barre, said.

This is how it works.

For the next twelve weeks, people can go online and nominate their municipality for road repairs.

Then, Domino’s will choose which lucky ones will get a grant towards those projects.

“Its pretty awesome that a corporation will send money to towns and fix the roads for you because municipalities and cities in this area won’t do it,” Michael Flaherty, of Wilkes-Barre, said.

Some people we spoke to say they would definitely nominate their hometown.

“Yeah, why not? I figure if there’s any way to make a change that I can do something about it, let me do something about it,” Clymer said.

While others aren’t so sure.

“Probably not, but I can see other people doing it because people talk about it and joke about it all the time,” Wilson said.

Domino’s has already helped four towns repair their roads, like Milford, Delaware and Burbank, California.
