NOW: Domino’s gives South Bend a grant to fix potholes

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – South Bend was chosen as a recipient for the Domino's Paving for Pizza Grant.

Domino's is giving the City of South Bend $5000 to help repair potholes.

Domino's launched their Paving for Pizza program in June 2018 in an effort to improve the state in which a pizza arrives.

Potholes can be huge obstacles for pizza getting to its final destination in good condition and Domino's set out to fix that them in across the country.

“Actually quite a bit of drivers that talk about it a lot and that’s the cool thing about the program is hopefully it will make the roads better for the residents and our drivers. That’s kind of the key to what Domino's is trying to do,” said Ryan Sims, a Domino's District Manager.

Pizza lovers can nominate their cities on the Domino's website.

Once Domino's has given the grants to selected cities, the city then chooses their own pavement company to carry out the deed.

“People are really passionate about their pizza and obviously Americans are very passionate about their potholes. Obviously, we need it and I think it’s going to be a big benefit to the town and our delivery area,” said Sims.

Pavement in South Bend will start in Spring 2019.
