PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) -- Pizza lovers have spoken, Domino’s Paving for Pizza program is coming to Parkersburg. You may have seen the commercials, where Domino's promises to save carryout pizza, one pothole at a time.
The company is giving a grant to one city per state, and Parkersburg won for the state of West Virginia. It will give a check to the city of Parkersburg to pay for repairs of cracks, bumps and potholes around town.
Domino's chooses the city based on the most online requests from customers.
Director of Operations, David Dennewitz, says, “You know every city has their potholes so every city needs it. But the Parkersburg area, I want to thank our customers because they're the ones that really poured on the outcry for it. And that's why we ended up getting it, so if it wasn't for the customers submitting us online, we wouldn't have ever received it.”
Parkersburg mayor, Tom Joyce, says the city can receive up to $10,000 for road repairs through the program. He says the city has been committed to street rehabilitation, spending over $4 million toward it in the last two years. Joyce says the city looks forward to participating with Domino’s.
