The proposed 4,100-square-foot restaurant will be built on the former site of a Fazoli’s restaurant, which was razed in 2016.
Mission BBQ was founded on Sept. 11, 2011, to commemorate the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, according to the company’s website.
“We believe there is nothing more American than BBQ,” the website states. “And nobody more American than the brave men and women who have sworn to protect and serve our communities and our country.”
The barbecue served at the restaurant includes Texas, Kansas City and Carolina style.
The Mission BBQ is currently located in 13 states including one planned in Downers Grove, Illinois.
The Kenosha plan commission will review Mission’s proposal Jan. 4.
