It’s Business Time Industrial Oven

It’s Business Time Industrial Oven allows you to create a Restaurant by simply placing the Oven on the Community Lot. You don’t need to own a public lot to run your restaurant, unless you want to get money from it. After you purchase the venue that includes this Oven, you will receive money. All you have to do is place the ”Business as Usual Bistro” in your world or add the ”It’s Business Time Industrial Oven” to an existing ”Visitors Allowed” lot.

NOTE: After placing the Oven, you’ll also need to place Menu’s on dining tables so that Sims can take orders.

To hire a new Chef, click on the Oven and select ”Hire Chef”. The game will randomly select a Townie from your Town and teleport it to the oven, where he/she will start working. If you’re not satisfied with your current Chef, you can fire it and Hire a new one.

There’s an option which allows you to make Chefs better, which means they will unlock and make better meals, but that will also cost you more Simoleons since they are not working for free!

You can customize your Menu with all recipes there are from all Expansion Packs and Store Sets that include new recipes. Other Sims can order food strictly from the Menu.

The quality of food also matters. Smaller quality will make food taste bad, and the higher quality will make food expensive. Sims who have ”Frugal” trait won’t tolerate high prices in your Bistro.

Your Bistro can work at Day, Night or inbetween. It’s your choice!

The Menu comes with this Oven, it’s just not listed as an official item since one without other can’t work.

The Venue
