Local businesses are the heartbeat of the Wenatchee community, and the valley has recently welcomed three new establishments that not only add to the city's charm but also exemplify the unique and diverse offerings that local entrepreneurs bring to the table. From dragon-inspired pizza to an ice cream “taco”, there's a lot to explore.

Let's celebrate these new additions, savor the local flavors, and continue to champion the spirit of community by supporting our neighborhood businesses.

The menu features creative pizzas like the "Dragonarchy"– a delightful mix of pepperoni, sausage, fresh garlic, jalapeno, oregano, and red sauce. Another standout is the "Pear Force" with prosciutto, pear, gorgonzola, fresh basil, and an olive oil base.
