Burger Boss is a semi-idle simulation game that explores what it's like to own and manage a busy restaurant. As a restaurant owner, the player must handle a near-constant influx of foot traffic from hungry locals and visitors who want delicious, mouthwatering hamburgers, french fries, pizza slices, ice cream and other tasty meals and desserts.
The player starts as a cashier, chef and waiter. They quickly earn enough money to hire and unlock workers to fill these roles. They then use their revenues to upgrade the carrying capacity of their avatar, improve the capacity and speed of their employees, and hire the maximum number of employees possible. Over time, they expand the restaurant to offer additional four-person indoor tables, two-person booths, a VIP section, a drive-thru, three delivery drivers on scooters, an area for drinks and ice cream, and even outdoor dining at picnic tables.
Burger Boss provides the player with plenty of ways to receive free funds and other benefits to expand their business. Large piles of money randomly appear around the restaurant. Additionally, the game randomly prompts the player with an offer of free employees and upgrades. A spin wheel with prizes appears near the drink unloading area. The player only needs to watch advertisements to enjoy these benefits.
