We're proud to have our story highlighted in an article in MinnPost titled "Immigration has become a 'driving force' in Minnesota's eonomy."
Abdirahman Kahin, owner and operator of Afro Deli and Catering in Minneapolis, applauded the study for highlighting the contributions his immigrant community is making.
"It’s important that Minnesotans learn about the success stories of immigrants and their economic contributions, Kahin said Sunday. “We’re not only here [to make a living] — We’re here to contribute.”
His Afro Deli’s new twin restaurant will open January in St. Paul. “Minnesota is one of the best places to start a business and to thrive,” he said. “When it comes to a space, when it comes to customers, Minnesota is a good place for immigrants.”
