Restaurant closure takes customers by surprise

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- A popular Yakima restaurant suddenly closed their doors and now some people are asking what happened?

We looked into it and found Villasenor's Mexican Restaurant closed on the 15th of last month.

People who live in the area say it was always very busy and found the closed doors surprising.

"It was a busy place. Usually comes like lunch time and dinner time, I mean you could see the parking lot is full most of the time. I mean, it's kind of bad that they closed it off," said Jose Najera of Yakima.

So why did they close?

The previous manager tells us she just had a baby and didn't have time for the restaurant anymore. She says the owners weren't able to find another family member to take over and they had to close.
As a result ten people lost their jobs.
But if you have a gift certificate you can still use it at their Toppenish location.
