Half the enjoyment of online games such as Cafe World, is that you get to design and customize your cafe your way. Its up to you to select the type of tables and chairs that will adorn your cafe, as well as selecting just the right windows, doors, and decorations to create the perfect atmosphere for your establishment. On top of all that, you can play stylist and decide how your character will look and what outfit she/he will wear!
The layout and decor of your cafe will affect not only the atmosphere you build for your customers, but will also play an important role in your success or failure in the game. As a seasoned player, I have a few Cafe World tips to share with you on how the layout of your cafe can help your business grow.
Access to Tables
Your primary concern should be making sure the layout of your cafe allows customers easy access to eating and seating. Make sure your customers can actually get to all of the tables and chair, or else they are just wasted space. For example, if there are three chairs in a row up against a wall, the middle chair is inaccessible since customers can’t walk past the outer chairs to get to the middle one. If customers walk in and cannot easily find a place to sit, you are likely to lose them.
As a rule of business, you never want to see a customer leave unsatisfied, and therefore you want to make sure that you have enough seating. It is easy to neglect this aspect of your cafe when you are focused on preparing and serving food. However, all the planning and preparation will be in vain if your customers cannot find a place to sit and eat.
Easy Navigation for your Server
Customers want quick service, and won’t wait forever for their meal to arrive. In light of that fact, you must ensure that your table arrangement leaves a clear and easy path for your serving staff to navigate around. The faster they can move between the serving counters and the tables, the more likely it is that each customer will get his or her food in a timely manner.
Another Cafe World tip that will allow your waiters and waitresses more time to serve is to create a layout where customers have a longer walk to their tables. If you arrange it so that there are several twists and turns from the door to the tables, the extra walking time awards your wait staff bonus time to stay on top of their serving cycles. Your customers are generally easy going, and won’t mind the little stroll to their table.
Keeping these little Cafe World tips in mind as you add tables and chairs, will have you well on your way to success!
