Bakkar Group began in the mid 1970s as a small investment for Wadie Bakkar, owner and founder. It has now grown into a multi-million dollar family business.
Wadie Bakkar moved to America in the late 1960's where he became a butcher for 16 years of his life. During those years, he worked tirelessly to make ends meet and provide for his family. Anytime there was an extra shift to be picked up, he seized that opportunity to work it. That determination and motivation put him in a situation where he was able to save enough money to purchase his first investment house. From there another to finally his first retail investment property and with hard work and a relentless spirit, he grew the company.
Currently, Mr. Bakkar runs the company with his two sons Ramzy Bakkar, president of Bakkar Group, who currently leads the company, and Tony Bakkar, who oversees the accounting of the business. Together, they have put together a team of knowledgeable and experienced professionals to help take the company to the next level of growth.
The company is comprised of several departments to include development, construction, leasing and sales, property management and real estate services.
