Co-owner Christian Mikkelsen poses for a portrait in front of Mission Burgers and Chicken off South Wenatchee Avenue Oct. 8, 2022. Christian loves cooking, and after going to culinary school he decided he wanted to open a local hamburger place in Wenatchee.

Christian Mikkelsen returned to his hometown of Wenatchee with a vision: a classic local burger joint with a modern twist.

His drive-thru offers smashed burgers, chicken and a standard array of sides. What sets Mission Burger & Chicken apart from your typical burger joint or eatery is the ingredients they use.
