Perks are skills your sims earn by upgrading their talents for the job they are doing. Each profession has its own perks, and so do restaurants. When you decide to try some of the restaurant perks, activate one of the cheats listed above. Nevertheless, the pre-condition for this is to own an establishment and have cheats activated.

You should also meet the requirements of the restaurant, including Waiter Stations, Dining Spots, and bathrooms. Once that’s done, you can watch your cheats in action once the establishment opens. However, players may not notice a change straight away since it doesn’t outrightly show you the alterations it has made.

One way to tell if it’s working or not is through the additional waiters or chef cheat. Using this method, you’ll see an option to hire more workers, indicating its success. Nonetheless, there’s still a limited amount of staff you can place, and you won’t be able to over exceed them with cheats.
