The owner of Afro Deli & Catering restaurants in Minneapolis and St. Paul plans to attend President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address next week.

Abdirahman Kahin was invited to the event by Sen. Al Franken.

Franken says Kahin is a Somali-American who shows how important people of diverse faiths and backgrounds are to Minnesota’s prosperity.

The 38-year-old Kahin says he’s honored to attend the address, and he’s eager to hear Obama speak about ways the U.S. can support immigrants and people of all faiths.

Kahin opened the first Afro Deli near the University of Minnesota’s West Bank campus in Minneapolis about five years ago. In February, he opened a second branch in downtown St. Paul.
