Chef For Hire (C4H, CFH) is a major game mode in Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!!.
In this mode, the player gets to work shifts at other restaurants. Each restaurant has a certain amount of shifts, each increasing in difficulty.
Each shift in the C4H restaurants has a preset menu, buzz, and prep and holding station amount. These cannot be changed by the player and are separate from those unlocked in the Cook, Serve, Delicious! restaurant.
Completing a shift can reward the player with Bronze, Silver, or Gold medals.
- Bronze medal is rewarded for completing the day with fewer than 8 bad orders.
- Silver medal is rewarded for completing the day with fewer than 5 average or bad orders.
- Gold medal is rewarded for completing the day perfectly.
If the player earns a Silver medal, they get Bronze as well. If the player completes a perfect shift, they get all three medals.
The Barista Update introduced Zen Shifts as an option for every C4H shift. This mode gives customers infinite patience, allowing the player to take as long as they want on orders. However, only Bronze medals can be earned in this mode. The "Tower of Zen" achievement is earned for completing one Zen Shift in C4H.
