The company said customers can nominate their town for pothole repairs at pavingforpizza.com. They filled in eight holes, and at the end of a hard day's work they shared a couple of pizzas.

"Have you ever hit a pothole and instantly cringed?" said Russell Weiner, president of Domino's USA. And instead of lobbying cities to fix the streets, the company is taking matters into its own hands.

The company says it's sick and exhausted of its pizzas being thoroughly beaten around by America's poor roads during delivery, so has chose to do something about it.

You can even get interactive on the site by seeing what happens when a driver goes over a bumpy road.

"Potholes, cracks, and bumps in the road can cause irreversible damage to your pizza during the drive home from Domino's", it says on the new website it has set up for its "Paving for Pizza" campaign.

Bartonville is one of four towns where the fast-food company has partnered with local administrations in order to help fix their broken roads.

The 40 potholes that were repaired stretched across 10 different roads.

Domino's said it has previously helped towns in Texas, California, Georgia and DE fix their roads. The pizza chain has more than 14,800 stores in more than 85 markets.

Officials in the cities Domino's worked with so far said they were happy to get the help, Domino's website said.

What's your take on Domino's commitment?

America's infrastructure needs all the help it can get.
