COEUR D'ALENE,Idaho--One Northern Idaho man is proving you can never be too old to keep doing what you love.

72 year-old Orlando Duran is the owner and operator of Orlando’s Mexican Restaurant at the corner of Dalton and Highway 95 in Athol.

He opened the restaurant earlier this fall, but for years he operated a similar food stop in Hayden. 

He closed that shop in 2007, but quickly realized he missed working for himself. 

Loyal customers call him an inspiration and are glad he’s back in business.

Duran’s career has spanned four decades and he says he is in it for the long haul.
