Of course, Dominos isn't putting your hard-earned pizza dollars to work entirely out of generosity: They spray-paint their logo and slogan on the newly filled pothole.

The company says it has already worked with four municipalities to help fix roads: Bartonville, Texas; Milford, Delaware; Athens, Georgia and Burbank, California.

It also shows how Domino's has worked in the past to help towns fix their roads.

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.

"Potholes, cracks, and bumps in the road can cause irreversible damage to your pizza during the drive home from Domino's", the Paving for Pizza website reads.

Domino's Pizza ($DPZ) is filling in potholes in towns across the USA with a new '"Paving for Pizza" initiative.

"This unique, innovative partnership allowed the town of Bartonville to accomplish more potholes repairs", Bartonville Mayor Bill Scherer said on the Paving for Pizza website.

Fouracre declined to disclose specific grant details, but said they're "smaller", "not multi-million dollar" awards created to add on to pothole-fixing budgets.

More than 50 potholes have been fixed between the four towns.

The pizza chain announced on Monday that it will save pizzas "one pothole at a time" by filling potholes in towns nominated by customers.

The good publicity will be a welcome change for Domino's following an incident last month in Tennessee. She said Domino's wasn't disclosing how much it was spending on the grants.
