Someone order pizzas: Patrick Doyle is going out with a bang.

Domino’s Pizza Inc. reported first-quarter sales that were well above estimates -- by about $100 million -- in Chief Executive Officer Doyle’s second-to-last quarter at the helm. Comparable-store sales in the U.S. rose 8.3 percent, outpacing the 4.7 percent rate the market expected. The shares closed at a record high Thursday following the news.
