Punch Pizza has gotten another shout-out from the President of the United States on Saturday.

In his weekly address, President Barack Obama mentioned the Minneapolis-based restaurant while talking about raising the minimum wage.

Punch has been getting recognized for raising its minimum wage to $10 per hour for entry-level workers despite the state minimum wage mandate being lower.

This is after the chain was recognized during Obama's 2014 State of the Union Address.

Punch Pizza co-owner John Sorrano and worker Nick Chute sat in the first lady's box during the speech.
