Former Detroit Lion Nate Burleson can relate, but one popular pizza chain is geared up to fill in potholes to prevent your pizza from being ruined before you even walk through your door. So far the company has partnered with four towns: Bartonville, Texas; Milford, Del.; Athens, Ga.; and Burbank, Calif.

That's right - Domino's Pizza is in the pothole-patching business, teaming with cities around the country to fill rutted roads with its "Paving for Pizza" promotion.

And no, they're not kidding, they really are filling in potholes, although not at random, as towns need to be nominated on the Paving For Pizza website.

Kim, believed to be 34, is the third leader in a family dynasty that has ruled the communist state since it was founded in 1948. Asked whether he would invite Kim to the White House , Trump said: "Absolutely, I will".

Domino's customers can nominate their town for pothole repairs on the Paving for Pizza website, and if selected, their city will "receive funds to help fix roads so pizzas make it home safely". If selected, "the city will receive funds to help fix roads so pizzas make it home safely", the press release stated. The accompanying website also has, aside from a nomination form and carryout special, a "pothole impact meter" with video to show what happens to a pizza from an in-box camera on varying road conditions.

The fixed pot holes are then stamped with a Domino's logo and the motivational slogan "Oh yes we did". The company is going town to town, fixing potholes that can put your precious pies at risk. You will be notified personally if your town is nominated.
