Restaurant City, as one of the most popular Facebook games currently on the Internet, has become something of a lightning rod for those looking to master a game that takes a bit of skill and a whole lot of time. One of the fundamental aspects of playing the game well is to create and manage employees in such as way that they can handle all of the different layouts that would allow you restaurant to succeed. There are a lot of things to juggle – but if you can do it properly, you’ll be well on your way to having a high quality, well run restaurant.
How to Hire and Set Employees
You can hire employees at set intervals in the game. The first two employees are provided to you when you first start playing the game at level 1. You will be one of your own employees and then you can go and hire someone else from your friends list to be your first waiter and to start serving customers. After you have hired those first two, you will also be able to add employees at level 2, 5, 8, 11, 14, and 17. That will give you a total of 8 employees to run your restaurant – a generally good number that will allow you to handle just about anything that you set up in your layout.
Keeping the Employees Happy
The thing about employees is that they generally do everything on their own. You don’t need to cut or prepare food as in Cafe World and you don’t need to worry about things like rotation or positioning nearly as much. They will do their jobs without any prompting. However, you will need to go in and rest your employees or feed them regularly enough if you want them to be able to continue serving successfully.
There is a meter tied to your employees that ranges from 1 to 100%. Each increment of 25% will drop the happiness level of your employee and slow them down, resulting in worse performance and less income for you, as well as a dropped popularity score.
To keep this score high and to maintain a level that will keep those employees happy, you either need to rest them or you need to feed them. The best route is to feed them as it is much less expensive in the long run. That said, you will need to spend a bit of time maintaining them every time you logon – if you can do that, you’ll be okay with your employees and can change your focus to how they are positioned in your layout.
