Wild Creative Bar & Eatery
We left our Parisian lives back in 2017 to find more passion and purpose in what we do. Wild was born from a simple idea: doing something we love, providing a nice experience to our guests, and the most important of all, having a positive impact on our community.To reach this goal, we focus on 4 main commitments:
We have always loved cooking and eating good things. So when we decided to create Wild, it was obvious we had to work on the recipes until we were proud to serve them.
It took us about 1 year to come up with the 12 first recipes of Fresh and fried Spring Rolls. And since then, every new recipe is tested tens of times, it can take us several months to come up with a new spring roll we consider worth serving. And once on the menu, we always value feedbacks. It helped us so much in the past, and we are sure it will also in the future.
Our cocktails and dishes are only made from quality produce, fresh fruits and vegetables (organic ones when available), as much as possible locally produced, and at least purchased from local and responsible providers we carefully selected.
Our team members are the keystone of our project since the very beginning. We always wanted to be able to support the local people, starting with our future employees.
We take good care of our amazing team members. For instance, we offer salaries above Cambodian standards, with bonuses when we can, and obviously, all the tips (cash or digital) are shared between our local employees only.
We adapt working hours in order to facilitate their family life or to enable them to attend university classes. We also provide them a health insurance and now, a retirement plan.
We are really proud that during Covid, we have kept all of our employees. We extended the opening hours to have them working as much as possible, and even during the period we were had to close, we kept on paying them so they could live decently, regardless the financial cost.
As you may have witnessed, and despite enormous and encouraging progress those last years, Cambodia has a long way to go in terms of environmental awareness. We consider it is our duty to do what we can to protect the environment in our every day operations, as well as teaching our team to do so too. So here is a non exhaustive list of things we pay attention to:
Health and education, among other things, are, in our opinion top priorities in Cambodia. Back in the 70s “intellectuals”, such as teachers and doctors were chased and murdered, or forced to leave the country, leading to a critical situations since then. If focus mainly on helping NGOs working on those topics, we also love to help on other subject, such as animal welfare, environmental actions, LGBT integration and safety, and many more.
Our action takes place at different levels :1. We raise money through our “social shop”, and special sales/actions/events all along the year.2. We donate time to help NGOs in our areas of expertise, by auditing or training them on different fields, or offering produces to charity events.3. We love talking about and highlighting great organisations, social events, and of course we always donate prizes for charity raffles etc.
