Photo Gallery | PHOTOS: President Obama Visits Local Hoagie Shop

What a way to spend your birthday for Casey Patten, Founder and Co-Owner of Taylor Gourmet.

Earlier today, President Obama visited the popular Italian hoagie shop for a small business roundtable discussion on 14th Street in the U Street corridor.

The DCist reports that Founders and Co-Owners of Taylor Gourmet, Casey Patten & David Mazza, were joined by other area small business owners including Kathy Rachels, President of Yes! Organic Markets and Brian J. Smith, Founding Principal of a local general contracting firm. 

The President reportedly ordered a Spruce Street to go, which features roasted turkey, prosciutto, roasted red peppers, and provolone as well as six additonal hoagies to bring to Congress members.

 Taylor Gourmet has four locations in the D.C. area and plan to open a fifth location this summer.
