As part of their efforts to build a positive business community, leaders of this small Campbell County community (population 3,035) offer infrastructure assistance and tax incentives to Wilder landowners who sell or lease to relocating businesses.
Long home to industrial, warehousing and wholesale operations, Wilder has diversified its tax base in recent years by adding companies like Castellini (produce distributor), Display Specialties (retail merchandising manufacturer) and Town and Country Sports Complex. Castellini and steel manufacturer IPSCO are the city's largest employers.
On the residential side of things, Wilder’s growing list of recreational options includes Frederick's Landing Park and Boat Launch, just three miles from the Ohio River; funky pizza chain Mellow Mushroom, with its signature VW bus protruding from the side of the building; and Great Escape Theater, showing the latest flicks without the mega-mall crowds.
