Pakistan Services Ltd. is one of the companies of Hashoo Group that owns five hotels and was incorporated in 1958 and is quoted on the Karachi Stock Exchange.
The first hotel pearl continental (PC) was built in 1964 in Karachi. In 1967-68 PC Lahore and Rawalpindi came in to existence respectively and in 1975 another PC hotel emerged in Peshawar.

In 1990 PC Bhurban came into operation, in 1995 the expansion of Lahore was in operation.
