MILFORD, Del. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The saying goes that the road to hell is paved with good intentions, but what if the road was paved with pizza?

National delivery-based pizza chain Domino’s is aiming to make commutes around the country a little less hellish, by helping to repair potholes.

The company’s “Paving for Pizza” program has launched in four test cities including one in North Texas: Bartonville in Denton County.

It’s also happening in Athens, Georgia; Burbank, California and Milford, Delaware.

Milford’s public works director, Mark Whitfield, says an abnormally harsh winter left the city with more potholes than usual. Milford received a $5,000 grant, which covered the repair of 40 potholes.

The city used their own crews, who stenciled Domino’s logo and “Oh, yes we did” on the first few repairs.

Domino’s is soliciting nominations for more cities.
