BELLEVUE, Neb. (WOWT) - Domino's is coming to Bellevue, and not to deliver pizza. They'll be fixing potholes.

The "Paving for Pizza" grant has been advertised by Domino's since June of 2018. They say that bumpy roads can ruin a good pizza, and that they're willing to help.

The grant has fixed potholes in 15 states, with roads in at least nine more states on the list to be fixed. The pizza company will fix potholes in one community in each of the 50 states by the end of the program.

The Paving for Pizza website shows projects that have been completed in other communities, with the number of potholes being fixed ranging from a handful to 200 in Des Moines.

Though there are complaints about roads all through the metro and the state, Bellevue was chosen due to the volume of nominations from residents.

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

There is no word yet on when the company will begin work in Bellevue.
