Purchasing a Restaurant
Your Restaurant experience begins by purchasing a Restaurant from the Retail Menu on the bottom right corner. Click on the ‘Select an Option’ > ‘Buy a Restaurant’.
You’ll be taken to the World Menu where you get to pick which Restaurant you’d like to purchase. You can own more than one Restaurant, but for the sake of this article, I’m only going to focus on one Restaurant called L’Attente Bistro which is a pre-made Restaurant found in The Library under the Maxis content tag.
After you purchase your desired Restaurant, you’ll immediately be taken to the Restaurant lot where you’ll have to transfer some of your Household Funds to Restaurant Funds. This means that whenever you earn money or lose money from your Restaurant Business, your Household Funds will remain untouched.
You can transfer Funds back and forth whenever you want by pressing the button indicated below.
If you want to build a Restaurant from scratch, here are the following items you’ll need in order for your Restaurant to function properly:
- Chef Station
- At least 4 Dining Spots (Tables with at least 1 Chair)
- Waiter Station
- Host Station
