Sales and Advertisement
The player has the option to advertise in Lemonade Tycoon. Every day, the player can pay an advertising fee with different choices in advertising being available. Advertising increases the number of potential customers.
The game features have many upgrades that are available at different prices. Some reduce wait times, some improve visibility, some make ice, etc. Stand upgrades allow more storage and customer capacity. There are also employees, a cashier, and a clown, which charge daily for reducing wait times and increasing patience, respectively.
There are five different locations where one can move your stand. Some places are more popular than others. Each location has a different rent. Each location has satisfaction and popularity. Popularity changes as the player’s stand get more popular. Good satisfaction and advertising bring more customers. Satisfaction ensures that customers will come back to the stand. If there are short lines, there are good prices, the player serves all customers rather than them leaving, and the player has a good recipe, the player’s customer satisfaction will go up. With the increase in satisfaction, customers will come back to a player’s stand. Satisfaction and popularity are location-based. They do not travel with you as you move from location to location.
There are many News Headlines that affect the success of lemonade sales. Some headlines improve the player’s business and some hurt it. Headlines change every game day and sometimes only affect a single location. Weather also affects sales – warm and hot days bring more customers than cold, rainy days. The weather changes each day and does not seem to follow predictable patterns.
