Hours for Mission in Middletown will be Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 11 am to 10 pm, Friday and Saturday from 11 am to 11 pm, and Sunday from 11 am to 9 pm. Mission Middletown will be closed on Tuesday’s.

Mission in Newport operates the same hours, but is closed on Monday’s. So basically there is a Mission open everyday for your hamburger needs.

Mission is currently hiring for all kitchen staff positions – line cooks, prep cooks, and dishwashers.
