At first, running a restaurant in The Sims 4 Dine Out is really hard. Clumsy and unskilled staff, low number of customers, cheap orders and unpatient customers are just one of the problems you’ll encounter in the beginning. Luckily, Restaurant Perks can solve all of that!
The Restaurant Perks help you unlock new Staff Slots, improve your Staff’s abilities, unlock new interactions and so much more!
You can find the Restaurant Perks in the bottom right corner of the Retail menu.
There are dozen of Restaurant Perks that you can buy. Some are permanent and some last only 24 hours!
To buy Restaurant Perks, you need Perk Points. Perk Points can be earned by socializing with the Customers, your Staff, leveling up your Restaurant and simply by earning money after your customers leave!
