Domino’s Pizza CEO Patrick Doyle to leave in June

NEW YORK (AP) — Domino’s Pizza said CEO Patrick Doyle will leave the company at the end of June, after eight years running the pizza chain.

The Ann Arbor, Michigan-based company did not give a reason for the departure. He’ll be replaced on July 1 by Richard Allison, who currently oversees the company’s restaurants outside the US.

Domino’s has performed well of late, and has benefitted from making ordering easy.

It takes orders from tweets, text messages and voice-activated devices, such as Amazon’s Echo.

Shares of Domino’s Pizza Inc, which were up 26 per cent last year, fell 2.8 per cent to $201 in after-hours trading Tuesday.
