Sims 3: Business As Usual Bistro problem

I bought the Business as Usual Bistro with sim points, but i'm not sure how to place the lot so it's useable. I don't see restaurant on the list when I make something a community lot. Anyone know how to fix this? Thank you!!

Re: Sims 3: Business As Usual Bistro problem

go to edit town change the lot type to hangout ( the default lot type is visitors allowed) then back to yourgame then your sims if they have enough money can buy the venue you set the hours and menu by clicking on the new oven in the venue

Re: Sims 3: Business As Usual Bistro problem

once you place the venue in game with it's default setting of visitors allowed you can hire chefs and set the menu but as you do not own the lot i.e. purchased it by the real estate option you will not get profits, once you go to edit town change the lot type to hangout then buy it via the real estate option , again you hire or fire the chef set the menu to whatever you want to sell for example mac and cheese  your chefs turn up for work sims come to buy and eat the way ( watch the household money say your sims has 2000 in the household fund when another sim buys the food once the chef places the food in front of the sim that bought you will see that for example 15 simoloens  was added to the household fund 2015 ) thats how your household gains the profit
