Key Hotel and Property Management was founded in 1982 when Steve Roumaya and Jim Yousif moved from Michigan to Toledo, Ohio along with their wive’s and purchased a little mini-mart. They worked seven days a week 14 hours a day to achieve their goals. Together over the course of 10 years they grew their grocery store business and at one time owned 12 mini-marts. As time went on they began to start purchasing the real estate that their grocery stores were in and that was the beginning of how they started into retail shopping centers. A few years after, they started inquiring about the hospitality industry and soon bought their first hotel, the Days Inn, in Bowling Green, Ohio in 1996. This is when Martin Yousif started his career with the company.

Fresh out of high school Martin started in 1996 at the Day's Inn, in Bowling Green, Ohio. He started as front desk agent but quickly moved up the ladder. It wasn't long before Martin was the general manager of the property living on site working seven days a week. It was at that time we decided we wanted to grow in the hospitality industry. In 1999, we bought Comfort Inn on Alexis Rd. in Toledo Ohio. This is when Jon Roumaya started his career with the company.

In 1999, Jon Roumaya started working at that front desk of Comfort Inn on Alexis Rd, Toledo, Ohio. Mr. Roumaya was still in High school at the time but worked all the departments over the course of three years and by the time he graduated High School in 2003 he became the general manager of the Comfort Inn on Alexis Rd.

Since the early 2000's, Key Hotel & Property Management has developed and grown both their retail business and their hospitality business constructing over eight new hotels including all of your major brands like Marriott, Hilton, and IHG. Also constructing and purchasing many retail shopping centers with national tenants. We had to expand our corporate office three times in the past six years because we simply kept outgrowing our offices.

Today Key Hotel & Property Management owns over 40 commercial properties with over 300 employees and still growing. We also have our own property management division that runs all of the shopping centers and we also have our own hospitality management division that runs all the upper management for all the hotel's including all revenue management, district management and district sales. At the end of the day we are still a family owned and operated business. All of the people in our company are family that have been here with us since the beginning and we are very proud of where we are at today.
