He held contracts with the United States military and several other companies, but Hussain wanted to make billions and knew that catering would only draw in millions. Sajwani didn’t completely stray away from from food, however, the catering division of DAMAC manages more than 200 projects and serves over 150,00 meals in a broad variety of markets, such as, the Middle East, Africa, and the CIS.

In the 1990’s Hussain built a number of hotels, meeting the demands from a flood of people going to the United Arab Emirates to do business and trading. The success of the hotels lead to the opening of DAMAC in 2002. DAMAC is now the largest property management group in the Middle East.

DAMAC Properties launched its hospitality division, DAMAC Maison, in 2011 which will provide services to their guests in more than 15,000 luxury hotel rooms and apartments. This makes DAMAC one of the country’s largest hotel apartment developers.
