Private sector, for the win!
Fast food chain Domino’s Pizza is doing the job most local government’s serially neglect — filling in potholes.
Under a new initiative, Paving for Pizza, Domino’s is soliciting nominations for towns in desperate need of deliverance from rough roads, for the pizza’s sake, naturally.
“Have you ever hit a pothole and instantly cringed? We know that feeling is heightened when you’re bringing home a carryout order from your local Domino’s store. We don’t want to lose any great-tasting pizza to a pothole, ruining a wonderful meal,” said Russell Weiner, president of Domino’s USA. “Domino’s cares too much about its customers and pizza to let that happen.”
“Domino’s has already worked alongside four municipalities to help repair roads that directly affect their customers, including Bartonville, Texas; Milford, Delaware; Athens, Georgia and Burbank, California,” says the pizza chain.
Bartonville’s mayor is a fan of the program.
Anyone can nominate their town at pavingforpizza.com.
The best part of this whole promotion though? It challenges the age-old argument of government necessity in the most basic functions of infrastructure maintenance.
