He Prides to have a "Global Feel With Kenyan Soul" in every PrideInn Hotel.

Hasnain is always up to the challenge of identifying and fulfilling gaps in the market. It is due to his entrepreneurial spirit that in just over a period of 8 years, he also managed to establish various other individually run profitable companies to include PrideInn Hotels and Resorts, PrideDRIVE, PrideFUELS, Cake City Kenya, Pride Conference Centre (Nairobi), Drinks Factory, Shawarma Express, Paradise Convention Centre (Mombasa), Muthaiga Business Centre, Buffets of PrideInn, Royal Kitchen Multi Cuisine Restaurants, Glory Safaris & Glory Expeditions in Tanzania.
