Impact's story began in 1980 with the acquisition of a small 34 unit independent Bambi Motel in Gainesville, Florida. Guided by a strong set of values and a drive to succeed, the Kanji family embarked upon a long prosperous journey in the hospitality industry.
Impact's humble beginnings continued with a focus in the 1980s on independent and limited service hotels in growing rural markets across the state of Florida. Since then Impact Properties has built an extensive track record spanning over 40 years in Florida, specializing in development of hotels, restaurants and medical offices and the company has invested over $300 million in its property acquisitions and development activity. Many of these projects have earned national recognition for their achievements in design, construction, and day-to-day operations.
Over the past 7 years Impact has embarked on a program to diversify its portfolio by making strategic investments in other industries. Impact's diversification program has resulted in significant investments in the auto collision industry, homes services, retail holdings and residential development.
