Sandra Loya, left, and employee Erika Reyes stand beneath the mural on the north wall of Loya’s Mexican restaurant, Casa Loya, on its final day of business Thursday. Loya, who has owned and operated the establishment since 2001, is shutting down the eatery to focus on her family.

Family is a priority for Sandra Loya, whether she’s at home or work. Throughout the years, the local business owner and her family have been able to serve the community and remain close while doing so. However, the desire to separate the two environments is something that has weighed heavily on her mind lately, leading her to make a change. After 11 years as part of the Craig food scene, Casa Loya, 351 S. Ranney St., closed its doors Thursday.
