SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Oh yes, they did.

The city of South Bend has been selected as one of Domino’s ‘Paving for Pizza’ grant recipients. The $5,000 grant will be spent on filling some of the city’s potholes. 

The pizza chain says they received an “overwhelming” number of nominations the from residents of South Bend.

“Cracks, bumps, and potholes can easily ruin a good carryout pizza, and nobody wants that,” said Glenn Mueller, South Bend Domino’s franchise owner, in a press release. “We’re thrilled that South Bend was selected as a grant recipient to help smooth the ride home for our carryout customers.”

Dominos launched its Paving for Pizza campaign in June 2018. The pizza chain received so many nominations that it decided to pave one deserving city in each state.
