Patrick Doyle, Domino's chief executive officer will step down this June, the fast-food giant announced Tuesday.

Doyle will be replaced by Domino's current chief of international business, Richard Allison.

Doyle was named as Domino's CEO in the year 2010. 

"One of the great honors and opportunities of my professional life was being named CEO of this incredible brand in early 2010," Doyle said. "At that time, I set three goals for myself: I wanted us to become the #1 pizza company in the world; I wanted Domino's to provide our franchisees with the best possible return on their investment by creating a dramatically better experience for our customers; and I wanted to have a Leadership Team in place that would be ready to create even better results into the future. I'm proud to say that we've accomplished all of those goals, and I will leave Domino's knowing that it is in great hands," Doyle was quoted on Domino's US website. 

Domino's president for the United States, Russell Weiner, shall step up as the company's chief operating officer in a newly created role. 

Both Weiner and Allison will assume their new roles from July 1, 2018.
