Denny’s is the latest restaurant chain searching for its next CEO. The breakfast brand says in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission today that CEO John Miller plans to retire from his position later this year.

Miller has been CEO since joining Denny’s in 2011. Prior to his time with the brand, he served as CEO of Taco Bueno and spent 17 years with Brinker Int’l., holding positions such as president of Romano’s Macaroni Grill and president of Brinker’s Mexican Concepts where he was responsible for overseeing On the Border and Cozymel’s.

The news of Miller’s resignation adds to the list of brands whose CEOs are stepping down. Earlier this week, Red Lobster announced CEO Kelli Valade, who joined the brand in August, will resign on April 15. Last month, Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson stepped down after five years with the coffee chain, and Wingstop replaced CEO Charlie Morrison in March after he left to helm the fast-casual chain Salad and Go.

Darden Restaurants CEO Gene Lee is retiring on May 29, and Domino’s Pizza CEO Ritch Allison is stepping down on May 1. On April 1, Carrols Restaurant Group named a new CEO after then-CEO Daniel Accordino announced last fall he would retire after a 50-year career with the company.
