MAKE ONLY HIGHER COINS DISHES


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
The quantity of plates you can sell per day is limited to max 24'000.
So try to avoid this number to include 1 to 4 coins income per plate:
Understood that 1'000 plates x8coins per hour will give you much more than 1'000 plates x1coin.


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
If you have 1 to 4 coins dishes on your counters, use Quick Serves to clean the counter (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?86232-Bakery-2-Game-Guide&p=1214285&viewfull=1#post1214285) instantly OR sell the whole counter with food (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?88615-BAKERY-STORY-2-Planning-amp-Strategies-to-EARN-COINS&p=1242685&viewfull=1#post1242685 ). It is up to you to calculate whether it would be appropriate to delete lower cost food or to keep it.

PLAN YOUR EXPENSES WISELY


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
It is not necessary to do all the things in order provided by leveling up.
Sometimes there is a sense to do "last things first".
The most common example is "To open Exotic Bazaar (level 22) or to collect coins for Cake Maker (level 23)".
Cake Maker provides 8coins food. So it will help you to generate larger "capital" at this stage, than the Bazaar.


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
To help your planning, we put all expenses waiting for your progress, into Levelling-Up Guide (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?90277-BAKERY-STORY-2-Levelling-Up-(XP-Unlocked-Items-amp-Expenses)&p=1269877&viewfull=1#post1269877). You can always check there and decide how you would like to move through.

SAVE GEMS TO BUY APPLIANCES FOR HOME-MADE INGREDIENTS


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
If you're not in the position to buy Gems for real money, save them and use wisely.
If you want to make good progress, do not spend Gems for decor, for usual cooking appliances, and tap carefully to avoid gem traps.


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
Buying Mixer will help you to move through the Monthly Goals easier, since they require hellion of home-mixed ingredients.


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
Buying Blender and Melting Pot will help you to double the output of longer made ingredients involved into higher coins dishes production.



So it's up to you to decide which one you want to have first.


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
If you have enough gems and bought Designer Mixer, Blender and Pot, spend your Gems for Appliances giving max coins dishes (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?88615-BAKERY-STORY-2-Planning-amp-Strategies-to-EARN-COINS&p=1242685&viewfull=1#post1242685).

https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20expansion.png
DO NOT FOCUS ON EXPANSIONS


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
At this stage of game development, we do not have key elements locked by Expansions (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?90273-BAKERY-STORY-2-Game-Guide&p=1269848&viewfull=1#post1269848).
So do the Expansion only if you see that you really need more space.


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
Check what you can do in space matter without expanding. Use optimal quantity of sits (see "Efficient Layout" below), store all decorations, use free space only for Functional Elements (see Elements of the Game (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?90273-BAKERY-STORY-2-Game-Guide&p=1269847&viewfull=1#post1269847)).

TO-GO ORDERS (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?90273-BAKERY-STORY-2-Game-Guide&p=1269853&viewfull=1#post1269853) TIPS


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
You can participate being Level 7 or higher.


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
Take a habit to make 1 to 4 coins dishes only for To-Go Orders (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?90273-BAKERY-STORY-2-Game-Guide&p=1269853&viewfull=1#post1269853), Secret Specials (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?89202-BAKERY-STORY-2-Secret-Club) and Goals (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?87196-BAKERY-STORY-2-Goals-Guide).
You cannot avoid it, since you absolutely need it for your progress in game.


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
Remember that if you cannot complete To-Go Order, you can always press the Replace button and get new one in 10 minutes. Unlike Secret Specials, for which there is no such a feature.


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
Remember that each To-Go Order takes only 15 to 35% of what you served, and the rest is going to your counter. And that Secret Specials don't take any food, they require you only to serve it, which means everything is going to your counters.


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
One feature helping me to decrease lower cost food production & sales, is to Sync the Deliveries.
Even if I have one order ready, I wait for other two - and deliver them in one go.
This can help you to get next orders in one time, so if two of them need same lower coins dish, you can bake it only once, cover the orders, and get less plates onto your counters.


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
Don't forget that Quick Serves is a great help to deliver To-Go Orders faster (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?88615-BAKERY-STORY-2-Planning-amp-Strategies-to-EARN-COINS&p=1242709&viewfull=1#post1242709).

https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
You can participate being Level 12 or higher and having Home & Fancy Ovens, Stove, Barista Machine, Mixer, and Dry Goods opened. Some of them require you to be minimum Level 14 and have Secret Baker's Club (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?89202-BAKERY-STORY-2-Secret-Club) opened.
Try to get there as fast as you can.



https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
Even higher level players not always have time and/or patience to complete the Goals.
Do not focus on final reward. It's not always worth it. "Not to win but to take part".
(Except events giving you possibility to win as the reward the highest coin dishes like in Spring Oven (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?90274-BAKERY-STORY-2-CookBook&p=1269873&viewfull=1#post1269873))


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
The main point of Goals is that they provide limited recipes with highest coins yelds like 6/8/10 per plate. So, during Goals, the money raising is much-much faster.

Try to deliver as much Specials as you can, because Secret Club (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?89202-BAKERY-STORY-2-Secret-Club) gives you an access to 10coin dishes which is extremely helpful especially at lower levels.


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
If you have a possibility, try to Sync the Deliveries of To-Go Orders and Secret Specials.
This can help to decrease the output of lower coins dishes.

EFFICIENT LAYOUT


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
Place the Cash Register (Cooper's Host Table) right next to your door OR Put him in the place inaccessible for your visitors (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?88615-BAKERY-STORY-2-Planning-amp-Strategies-to-EARN-COINS&p=1242497&viewfull=1#post1242497).


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
Do not put anything on the way "Door - (Register) - Sits", and do not put sits too far from exit: your little customers must enter fast, do what they came for, and leave you Bakery clearing a space for next visitors.


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
Customers are entering your Bakery at rate 16/17 per 1 minute (with about 3.5 seconds interval).
It takes 1m15s for each of them to eat. *
It means, in perfect case you can have max 22 customers eating in one go in your bakery, But!
Some seconds they need to get to the sit.
With efficient layout, it would be enough for you to have 24 sits max.

It's normal for customers to sit longer in higher level Bakeries. As you level up in-game and add new recipes and decorations to your Bakery, your customers may want to sit and eat longer and enjoy the ambience of your space. :)


https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/0bt/20rights8.png
Here are the samples of smallest layout based on shortest way from the Door to the Sits:
A) 11x7 squares (Cooper's Host Table in this case have to be locked from Customers' access)
https://vanacatu.000webhostapp.com/games/bs2/shop/layout24.png

B) 11x9 squares (Cooper's Host Table is accessible)

Great post, VanaCatu! Lots of good tips there.

The idea I had RE "Efficient Layout" :
I put a counter right in front of Cooper's Host Stand, so the customers cannot walk up to it. (doesn't have to be a counter, for a while I had the coffee cart there)

What happens then is that the customers step in, reach out and collect their food and then continue to their seats. That way they don't have to spend time turning toward his stand or walking to/from it, they just grab and go. It doesn't seem to delay new customers coming in; they seem to come at the same rate. So you don't get more customers, just that the ones you get can move in and out as quickly as possible.

As a bonus, then you can put Cooper anywhere, because the customers follow the same pattern of "grab and go" whether he's close to the door or far away among the appliances.

I just did a count of customers, and they seem to come in at an average of 15 per minute. Sometimes they come at a steady pace, other times they stop and start. The most I saw come in without a pause is 25. So at about 15/minute, that would be 900/hour and 21,600 per day.

I don't know what drives the rate of customers - if it's always around 15/minute, or if it depends on level, # of seats, # of plates available. For reference, I'm at level 30, with 30 seats, and there's always at least a couple that are empty. I do have Liam taking up permanent residence in one, though, because I have quite enough thank you notes already LOL!

Great thread!!

Thanks @LHbaker8, I didn't realize you could put something in front of Cooper. I think this will be really helpful for those who are tight on space.

Some quick tips that I can think of off the top of my head:

1. Like previously posted, only make high return recipes. Like @CammoAmmo, when I need to make a lower coin plate for a goal or a to-go order, I make sure that I put it on the cheapest counter (25 coins) and then sell the counter (you get 13 coins back) immediately after it's served. In my honest opinion, it's not worth it to use gems or oven mitts to clear the low return plates.

2. If you're going to pay for gems, the best investment are appliances, but not all appliances are created equal.. Like Vana mentioned, the mixer and blender are bottlenecks, so if you have gems, I would buy those first. Next, I would buy a second cake maker, since it creates the highest return dishes. I would not buy an extra fancy oven or basic oven. I bought both in the beginning, and now they just take up space in my bakery since (as of now) you can't store appliances.

3. Don't be afraid to delete thank you notes and expansion supplies. I only expand when I need to.. and I truly have not seen any difference in earning from the last expansion. I have 42 tables and I'm experiencing the same customer flow as LHbaker8 described. My bakery is never maxed out. Since, I don't plan on expanding any time remotely soon, I delete maps and bricks all the time. I have also deleted thank you notes in the past to help free up storage space when my thank you note to other materials (storage jars, shelves, coupons, etc.) gets out of hand.

4. A few of us have signed up on FB for neighbors. If you search bakery story 2 neighbors on FB, you'll find the group. It's nice to have all of the extra oven mitts each day. I use oven mitts to fill orders quickly, crank out custard and caramel immediately, and clear counters that hold high return plates that I don't make often (ie. rocky road pie, raspberry gallette, etc.).

5. Figure out a strategy that will allow you to enjoy the game.. I know others only make plates with 5 or 6 coin returns, but I like leveling up and gaining XP, so I also make "easy" recipes like scones and and coconut vanilla lattes, since I always have those ingredients on hand and they give me a lot of extra XP.

Hope this helps!

I was just thinking about this this morning! Good thing you did it first because if I made a thread it would definetely not be as detailed and wonderful as this one.

I think everyone has covered pretty much every tip possible, the only one I have to offer is that quickserves are best used to quickly finish to-go orders. Like Vana said, you want to maximize to-go order efficiency by getting the orders finished as quickly as possible, so you want to get them all at once, cook the food, and deliver in maybe 30 mins max. This is impossible without quickserves, but if you use them you will be able to maximize to-go order efficiency and get parts much faster. Without quickserves, you may be waiting up to 7 hours (4 hours + 3 to cook) just to get the next batch of orders.

FB friends are a resource that are extremely useful. Make a secondary account with no personal info and join FB groups like "Bakery Story Neighbors." Instead of one quick serve per day from a to-go order, you can get enough to easily serve all your to go order recipes and more. Don't waste such a good resource!

we have such a proverb here, cd sound like "live and learn hundred years - doesn't matter: anyhow u'll die being a fool".

playing 3 months, reading almost everything in the forum - but still so many news! lol ))))

- i totally forgot about facebook (btw still need to do it myself).
- and i forgot about cooper's host table. btw, not only putting smth in front of him gives this effect: you can just put him in the place where your customes cannot reach him.
- and i didn't even know that we now can sell the counters with food!


thank you guys! i have amended the main post respectively.

Hello all. Can folks please share the estimated average coins per day they are reaching, along with what level they are on and if they are following the strategies outlined here : http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?88615-BAKERY-STORY-2-Planning-amp-Strategies-to-EARN-COINS

I keep reading that once you master higher value plates, the coins roll in quicker, but I am making only 5 coin or higher plates, using quick serves to get rid of lower value orders, and deleting (selling) 1 coin countertops-- and I am not earning very many coins. I am on level 33, about halfway between 33-34 on experience points, and I still haven't unlocked the apple pie or even the melting pot (from level 31) . I unlocked the apple cider Monday, which used all of my coins. Now it's Thursday, I've competed some of the goals with a $17-20k reward, I do To-go orders at least twice a day, and making a few 10 coin gourmet items, and yet I have only 300000 coins. I think it will take me 2 more weeks to get the melting pot, then another 3 weeks to unlock the pie. But I'm on level 33 now, so they're expecting me to unlock dark chocolate, the fryer, and donuts on this level. I just don't know what I'm doing wrong in terms of earning coins. I would think if you followed the game goals and didn't buy too much decor, etc, you would earn coins inproportion to the level you are on. That's just not the case for me.

it is just not so easy and not fast at all...
especially on higher levels, like 30th and up - you always have a goals that you got many levels before, just because you do not have enough coins to unlock things here and there...
of course it can irritate, but it's the game! not so much levels we have so far (only 40, thanks to developers!) - so wht wd you do when you easy get to 40th?
same discussions about secret club... wht wd you do if you got all your silver and golden keys in a few days, and only easy recipes to get them?
no more news, nothing interesting. u'll just drop it and will hardly visit when monthly goals/events appear...

this thread doesn't teach how to get to lvl40 during 2 weeks starting from zero.
we rather meant it to show what you do not have to do if you don't wanna stuck :)

Thanks. so is my estimate of less than 100k per day pretty consistent with your experience? That's what I'm asking, in a long winded sort of way I suppose. How many coins per day are people averaging, what levels they are on, and if they are following these strategies.

I am about the same level as you, I'm level 34 with donuts unlocked but have not learned apple cider. After level 30 I ditched all recipes under 6 coins. 5 coin recipes I now sell with quickserves or delete. You should be able to make enough food to keep 6+ stocked if you have pb balls, cake, and lemon meringue pie. It's not much of an increase, but I make around 160k a day now.

Thanks. so is my estimate of less than 100k per day pretty consistent with your experience? That's what I'm asking, in a long winded sort of way I suppose. How many coins per day are people averaging, what levels they are on, and if they are following these strategies.
well, here i'm not sure i can assist properly...
i've learnt meringue pie abt 4 days ago, and i was left with abt 15k coins after this.
then i levelled up to 30th, and made 4 goals rewarded me with 20k each...
now i have 350k.

it cd mean i'm having way less that 100k per day, but the point is that i'm simply forgetting to enter the game, while making pics and charts, lol )))
collecting ingredients, deleting low coins food, performing orders / goals - all these things can be done much much faster than i do.
so i can only collect other players' experience and put it in kinda guides, but... "shoemaker's wife is the worst shod" lol )))))

wht i also think is that we not always can stick to income per day depending on level.
we know now that we can level up but still cannot get enough money to unlock the recipes we had several levels ago.

so it's not always about the level.
as cammo said (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?88615-BAKERY-STORY-2-Planning-amp-Strategies-to-EARN-COINS&p=1255665&viewfull=1#post1255665), it's about coins per plate,
AND

if, for example, we can sell only around 20k plates per day, there is no sence to bake anything but cakes, pies, and pb balls...
but we have to! to do goals, to-go orders, and secret specials.
so we just need to calculate for ourselves wht can we throw away when served for those special reasons, and wht can stay in our counters.

nothing to talk about lower levels, i guess:
i remember when we started all together in one moment, we agreed that 1 and 2 coins plates must die! :)
then we all levelled up and talked that even 3 coins dishes are not so good...
then we got pb balls and were only agree for minimum 5 coins!
and now, when we know all investments we have to place upto lvl 40, - even 7-8coins don't seem enough! :)

HOW do I bring myself to sell this counter??

http://i63.tinypic.com/9hm845.jpg

This gives 1 coin per plate and I don't want this.. I have enough other foods.. I still have 15000 hot white chocolates from the last goals!! I don't know how I have so many lemon mousse.. I only prepare it for orders..but now I can't bring myself to delete it..

if this is usual "counter with shelf" (that costs $25) - u can just sell the whole counter, as ms. lainey said (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?88615-BAKERY-STORY-2-Planning-amp-Strategies-to-EARN-COINS&p=1242685&viewfull=1#post1242685).
i mean tap market, tap this counter, and sell it. it will give you $13 for counter. but nothing for food.
of course if you don't need yr $19'000 for this mousse )))))

That's the point.. I need money and letting go of 19000 coins is very very hard.. but this is a one coin per plate dish which means to earn the whole amount it is going to take days and days.. plus it is blocking other coin earner dish sales in a way.. I always sell of counters with low earning food.. I can sell this particular counter.. it is the usual 25 coins counter.. but to let go of 19000 coins?? Very hard..

here i cannot help, unfortunately.
i've put some observation results into block "efficient layout", but i still cannot catch the system of selling out the food from counters.

i had 19 counters with food.
- after 24 hrs only 7 of them was still occupied.
-- and these 7 sold out abt 7% of daily volume each (7% ~= 1600..1700 plates).
- 11 counters just had less than 7%, so they sold out totally.
- and only one counter was completely crazy:
-- it had abot 5'000 plates of expresso cheesecake - and sold out whole 5k during 24 hrs! (means over 20% of daily volume).

this counter actually break any system... i cannot tell if the counters selling out evenly or not, and depending on what...

so i cannot tell you how many days wd you need to sell out your mousse...
the only thing is maybe... to stop baking for couple of days? then the sales will go faster for sure.
and when your counter is finally empty, you can start over...

I couldn't bear to toss out mine either. I stop making the lower coins recipes once mastered and let them sell out. These are good suggestions by members. It's good that we can learn from each other and sometimes adopt the suggestions if they work for your play style. :)

I can understand the impulse to not want to waste those coins.
If you are having trouble keeping food on your counters, it makes sense to keep them. A customer coming in and paying 1 coin for a dish gets you more than if they left empty handed.

But if you've got plenty of food on your counters, if it were me, I'd sell the counter. Here's why:

Say you get on average 900 customers a hour. (That seems to be what people are typically seeing)
That's 21,600 customers/day and a total of 21,600 potential plates to make money every day. If your other counters have on average 8 coin dishes, every time a customer gets a 1 coin dish instead of an 8 coin dish, you're missing out on 7 coins potential earnings for that day.

If just 10% of your customers get a 1 coin dish instead of an 8 coin dish, that's 7 x 10% x 21,600, or 15,120 coins you missed out earning for that day. And you still have around 17,000 1 coin dishes on your counter, so you're going to miss out earning that potential 15,000 coins the next day, and the next, and the next, etc etc.

Over a week, you will have earned about 100,000 fewer coins by holding on to that lemon mousse counter.
So if you really are in need of coins quickly, it makes more sense to sell the counter than to keep it.

Your exact results may be different, depending on the exact mix of food on your counters, size of your bakery, volume of customers.
I totally get that it's hard to consider just tossing out that hard earned food and the 19,000 coins, but if you do the math you'll probably find out you'll wind up ahead in a day or so by selling that mousse counter.

made some observations and found that we sell upto 1000 plates per hour
(i've edited main post and put it into "efficient layout" box).
there were couple of days i stopped baking at all, and was just looking after customers, counting food, checking time etc...
so, it's upto 24k plates per day.

however it doesn't make wrong the low rated food calculations.
i agree that such a qtty of mousse can seriously slow down generating coins...

ps: i was looking after customers with locked cooper.
didn't checked yet if they come in slower with accessible cooper...

@LHbaker8

I knew it was a faster way to earn coins. Haha believe me, it is so tempting to toss them out! :p I may do that when I am desperate for coins. I'm playing at a more leisurely pace for now instead of rushing through it. Anyways it's great to see everyone sharing great tips on the forum. I'm learning as I go. :)

great that we have gourmet recipes now, i have to say ))) 10 coins dish is a good excuse for home oven being not used before...

so, actually, i use home oven now for:
- goals
- to-go orders
- secret specials
- cooking cheesecake.
