Domino's transitions to new CEO
The guard officially changed at Domino's this past Sunday, when 8-year CEO J. Patrick Doyle stepped down, as announced in January. Domino's International President Richard (Ritch) Allison has taken over the role.
The Ann Arbor, Michigan-based pizza giant experienced a huge turnaround in its success under Doyle's leadership, moving from the "cardboard crust" days of TV ad fame to what is — as of February — the world's largest pizza chain, based on retail sales.
In January, Allison said the company is focused on growing even more rapidly in the future. In fact, as he put it at that time, "We want to become the dominant player in pizza everywhere in the world. I can't wait to get started."
