Bruno Cardinali is leaving his role as Popeyes CMO after nearly three years in the job.

In a conversation with Adweek, Cardinali said he’s not leaving for another post. Instead, he simply wants to take a break.

“I’ve gone from job to job over the years, and I’ve always promised myself that if the opportunity came up, I would take some time off,” Cardinali told Adweek. “This the right time to do it for me, and for the brand.”

A rep for Popeyes parent company Restaurant Brands International confirmed Cardinali’s move.
