    On Monday the pizza chain said it was partnering with towns and cities in the U.S. to fix potholes, with the goal of providing smoother rides for Domino's delivery drivers.

    Hundreds of recently repaved potholes in four towns in Texas, Delaware, Georgia and California feature the company's marketing slogan, "Oh yes we did." And the company isn't stopping there. Domino's will provide grants to up to 20 towns, according to Jenny Fouracre, a spokeswoman for the brand. Each town will receive the same amount of money, but Fouracre declined to specify how much.

    "We care about our customers and how we can make their experience better, we often try to focus on existing tensions that could impact their interaction with our brand," she told CNBC via email. "Clearly we hit on a big one — potholes — and what they can do to your pizza."

    The campaign struck a nerve with social media users who questioned why a restaurant company was fixing roads in the U.S. and not the government. Many were also quick to start petitions to nominate their local towns for the funding. As for the cities that have already been helped by Domino's, it is "a unique way" for a private business to help tackle an on-going problem, said Mark Whitfield, the public works director for the city of Milford, Delware.

    "It has enabled us to stretch our pothole dollars and do 'more with less,'" Whitfield said.

    At the end of the day, connecting with consumers is what Domino's plan is all about.

    I won't eat at dominos. I called to order a pizza a few yrs ago and when I said anchovies they said they don't have them. I said you mean you are out and they said no we don't carry them at all. I said you must be kidding, a pizza place that doesn't have anchovies? I don't trust a pizza place that doesn't have anchovies.

    LoL - Reminds me of an old Green Acres episode when Oliver used one of Lisa's hotcakes as a sink plug ...

    Or the one where Fred Ziffle was using them to re-shingle

    In all my borned days - I've yet to see anyone order anchovies on their pizza.

    On the other hand - certain seafoods are pretty tasty on pizza. I once ordered (I think in Portland) a gourmet thin crust pizza (garlic parmesan sauce on crust) with fresh Oregon bay shrimp.

    The key is that you cook the pizza 3/4 of the way through and THEN top with the tiny little bay shrimp (already cooked) and a bit of cilantro.

    DELICIOUS!

    I used to think pineapple on a pizza sounded gross.

    Finally tried it, and it's not bad.

    Not my fave, but OK.

    I have a pizza comment.

    Dominos and Pizza Hutt are in every corner of every town I’ve ever been to. They are everywhere. This has been the case since the day I was born.

    I was about 14 when I realized that they cost about 5 dollars more to order from than a comparable company, and tasted like puke. Total garbage. Fucking gross.

    Last month my kids’ school sold some Dominos coupon books as a fundraiser so I bought one and we ordered from Dominos. Thee were 3 Dominos within 12 minutes drive from me.

    It came and it was so bad no one wanted to eat it. It was like wet cardboard. With the coupon it was the same price as ten other places we could have ordered from.



    These companies are massively successful. They make enough that they can fill in potholes. They are everywhere and always super busy.

    My question:

    What the fuck??????


    *Note. I’m not writing this from downtown Chicago, or New York. I’m not some pizza snob. Im not surrounded by some sort of pizza Mecca. No one says “when I think great pizza I think of suburban Vancouver”

    I actually like Pizza Hut. Not as much as a good Mom & Pop place, but equally as much as Papa John's. Actually more - their thin crust is just right.

    Domino's is meh at best. However, when I was in college, they were the only (delivering) game in town. 875-3030 and a $6 check got you dinner and the next day's lunch!
