    I started a vending machine business in 2015 with only 2 machines, this is the fourth year in business and the network size has reached to 80 machines. I am located in Karachi – Pakistan, here we did not have vending machines earlier. Basically there was no competition but there were few initial challenges 1) Finding the right equipment
    2) Getting the currency bill acceptor developed
    3) Market was not aware of what vending machines are
    4) How to run this business as there was no example in the country

    Plan is to have a1000 machines network in the next 5 years.
