Patrick Doyle, who succeeded Brandon as Domino’s CEO, hasn’t been surprised that Brandon has stuck with his plan.

“I have met few people in my life in business or personally who are more consistent between words and actions than Dave,” Doyle said. “When Dave says he’s going to do something a certain way, that’s how he does it. He’s incredibly consistent and that’s one of the reasons he became CEO of two very different companies over 20 years — Domino’s and Valassis — and why the University of Michigan wanted him to make the big decisions for its athletic department.”
