Walid Hammami moved to America in 1996 from Tunisia with the goal of feeding New Yorkers great food. For the past twenty years, he has been the proud owner of ten notable restaurants that included the new New York staples like Teany, Raffaela’s, Atlas and Absinthe among others. Teany and Atlas were both vegan restaurants.
Eventually, he sold all of his establishments to partner with Miki, the founder of Wild Restaurant. Their complimentary skill sets have been the perfect restaurant marriage between the two. With his operational experience coupled with Miki’s vision and their shared love of good, fresh, healthy gluten-free food, there is nothing they want more than to feed the world the best gluten-free pizza in the world and help create new shared memories with loved ones while doing so. They are well on their way to doing just that by expanding their growing empire with franchise opportunities on the way. Walid currently resides with his wife and new baby and looks forward to what the future of Wild will bring.
