once kids have been playing long enough to accumulate the necessary capital, skill attributes and level, they can start their own restaurant, and potentially make a lot of money. Here they have to hire other players for the roles below (depending how well the other players do, they profit -- so there's incentive for them to make sure the other players are doing their jobs well). They also need to order ingredients for their restaurant, using any available analyzable store data to help them coordinate ingredient supply versus food spoilage. You start out running a little fast food place, eventually you can run nice restaurants or whatever.
