Creating your own restaurant can be a rewarding experience, but it requires an investment of a significant amount of time and money. If you want to get some experience brainstorming ideas before jumping into anything too serious (or you just want to have some fun with a hypothetical game), try building your own restaurant via a mobile app. When you do, here are some foods to consider selling.
Perhaps you want to sell unusual or historical menu items such as World War 2 food, but even so, you should also consider offering popular classics like tacos. Many restaurants do well with a variety of menu items, and the same is true when it comes to mobile game-simulated ones. It will not take too long for your guests to express their opinions.
2. Ice Cream
Speaking of classics, another must-have on any restaurant menu is ice cream. No matter what kind of food you serve as the main entree, ice cream almost always works well as a simple dessert that many people love. Of course, another option is to turn your mobile app restaurant into an ice cream parlor and just forget about the other meals of the day.
3. Comfort Food
When you are looking at restaurant simulator menu options, something else to consider is comfort food. As another large category of food options, some popular items include:
- Mashed potatoes
- Fried chicken
- Chicken soup
- Chicken parmesan
These types of dishes are popular with a wide variety of people and they work well with numerous entree types.
When it comes to food business ideas, coffee is another solid menu choice. Depending on the time of day that your most popular menu offerings target, coffee might not only be a good idea but even expected. For example, if you sell breakfast items, many customers will want coffee with their meal. As with ice cream, you could also choose to entirely focus on coffee by opening a cafe instead of a full-menu restaurant.
5. Baked Goods
If you have a sweet tooth, you might prefer to turn your mobile-simulated restaurant into a bakery that offers a wide selection of various baked goods. For example, you might want to sell muffins, cookies, brownies, cakes and pies. On the other hand, you could also just choose to sell cakes or cookies if you want to create an even narrower focus. In a way, baking is like art.
For something a little more unique, you could also try offering sauces on your restaurant’s menu. At first, this might seem like a bizarre suggestion but think about all of your favorite sauces. If you had to put them into a category of the top five, would you be willing to purchase them from your favorite restaurant? Many customers would. Look for different ways that you can set up sauces on your restaurant’s menu.
7. Pre-Packaged Snacks
Sometimes, people who go to restaurants are not hungry for an entire meal. This can be because they are with other people who are more hungry, they are in a hurry or for several other reasons. Regardless, offering pre-packaged snacks can be a great way to serve these customers, too.
8. Baby Food
Another unique menu item to offer at your restaurant is baby food. Depending on the mobile game you play to create your restaurant, your options may be limited, but you should look for the capability if it exists. After all, young people have to eat, too. Many parents bring their own food for babies, but offering baby food offers them a convenient alternative.
9. Homemade Jams and Jellies
Even in the world of mobile gaming, jams and jellies have the potential to be a big hit. As a quick and easy addition to numerous types of foods, jams and jellies are a tasty favorite for any time of day. However, if you open a breakfast diner, this is even more so the case.
10. Organic Foods
As for popular menu items, organic foods are top of the list both online and offline in the restaurant world. One major reason for this is that many people are concerned about their health. By adding organic food to your mobile-simulated restaurant’s menu, you can make many of your customers happy.
