Domino's Pizza helps with road repair in McPherson

Domino's Pizza last week announced its "promise to save carryout pizza, one pothole at a time."

The company says McPherson was selected as a "Paving for Pizza" grant recipient. This announcement followed "an overwhelming number of nominations from its residents."

“Cracks, bumps and potholes can easily ruin a good carryout pizza, and nobody wants that,” said Grant Claassen, McPherson Domino’s franchise owner. “We’re thrilled that McPherson was selected as a grant recipient to help smooth the ride home for our carryout customers, as well as everyone in the community who uses the roads.”

In June, Domino's launched its "Paving for Pizza" program. With the program, the company asks customers to nominate their town for a grant to repair potholes.

"Since the program launched, Domino's received more than 137,000 nominations from 15,275 zip codes in all 50 states," the company says. "Customers submitted so many nominations that Domino's decided to expand the program to pave one community in each state."
