Bacterial cells do not have mitochondria. Mitochondria means ‘Structures in a cell’s cytoplasm that play a major role in the breakdown of food molecules to release energy’.
Bacteria are prokaryotes, which, by definition, are cells that don’t possess membrane-bound organelles.  ‘Mitochondria are membrane-bound organelles.’
Cellular respiration, in prokaryotes, occurs within the cytoplasm or inner surfaces of the cell.
