KAVLINGE, Sweden, Dec. 9 (UPI) -- The proprietors of the Obamas food cart in Sweden said they gave their business the name because they "really like" U.S. President Barack Obama.

Amro Hawary, who is from Egypt, and his wife, Soumia, who is from Morocco, said they started selling their falafel, kebab and sausages under the Obamas name at their Kavlinge food cart behind a shopping center, nearly three years ago, The Local reported Thursday.

"I named it Obamas because I really like the American President Obama," Amro Harway said.

Harway said he has been following U.S. politics since spending some time in the country during the 1960s.

"My husband loves him," Soumia Hawary said. "If we had children he would name our son Obama, and our daughter, she would be Michelle."
