The video, released by the White House, showed Biden speaking to Neal and Samir Idnani, the owners of NaanStop that serves Indian food.
During the conversation, Biden asked the owners, “And if I get to Atlanta, can I come by?”
“Absolutely,” the Idnani brothers responded.
Watch the video:
“Samir and Neal own NaanStop in Atlanta, Georgia — and like many small businesses around the country, they’ve been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. I gave them a call to hear their story and talk about how the American Rescue Plan will help businesses like theirs,” the official Instagram account of POTUS stated.
The owners of NaanStop, which was started about 10 years back, revealed their business had dropped by almost 75 per cent since the pandemic, resulting in their staff being reduced from 20-25 to 10-15 people.
“I put together a rescue plan that provides tens of billions of dollars in grants to small businesses,” Biden said during the interview.
Here’s how netizens responded:

I’ve eaten at the Buckhead location several times when I worked around there. Didn’t know they were a local business! The food was amazing! And love the name 🙂 Good work Samir and Neal!
