Richton Park Receives Domino's "Paving for Pizza" Grant

Domino’s has created, initiated, and implemented a nationwide program called “Paving for Pizza” advertising a campaign that is based on their promise to “save carryout pizza, one pothole at a time.”

Domino’s launched its “Paving for Pizza” program in June 2018, asking customers to nominate their town for a grant to repair potholes within blocks of a Dominos restaurant. Since the program launched, Domino’s received more than 137,000 nominations from 15,275 different zip codes, in all 50 states. Customers submitted so many nominations that Domino’s decided to expand the program to pave one community in each state.

Upon learning of this campaign, Village staff worked diligently to get the word out to residents of the opportunity to better our neighborhood roads. Fortunately, there was a great       response village-wide. Thanks to an overwhelming number of nominations from Richton Park residents, the Village was selected as a “Paving for Pizza” grant recipient!

“Cracks, bumps and potholes can easily ruin a good carryout pizza, and nobody wants that,” said Saad Khan, Richton Park Domino’s franchise owner (4767 Sauk Trail.) “We’re thrilled that Richton Park was selected as a grant recipient to help smooth the ride home for our carryout customers.”

The Dominos inspired paving was implemented at the corner of Greenbrier Ave. & Kostner Ave., just northeast of the Village Hall. Last month, Khan met with Village Staff, Village President Reinbold, and Trustees Valerie Babka and Joe Canady to unveil the completed project.

President Reinbold stated “The Village is excited to have been rewarded such a grant. Like in all communities, there are some roads that need a bit more attention than others. We are proud that our residents saw a need, came together, and voted.”
