doing a start of recruiter girls for the first 2 turns. then once you have 3 you spend 3 turns only recruiting kitchen helpers. once you have all 12 you simply just advertise any pizza or hamburgers and start trying to control advertising by working towards a radio. I feel you could make it work if you scooped up 4 early on round 3 then picked to go last on turn 4 and first on turn 5.at this point if anyone has less then 2 they can't compete after you have advertising in place.

While you are doing this, someone else will have already started training--and be closer to getting to Radio before you.

But anyway--even if there are no Kitchen Trainees available to hire, someone could still get a Burger/Pizza Cook by doing the hire/train action in the same turn. So it's not like you will have cornered the market on being able to sell pizza/burgers.

It sounds like you might not understand how the recruit/train combo action works. You can't block access to pizza and burgers like you describe.

please explain. if I have all of 1 type of entry level position how does that not block it? I don't have a copy of the rules since my friend has the game.

This scenario is covered in the rules.

FCM rules page 7 wrote:
You may only hire people at entry positions (indicated by <arrow> in the top left corner of the card). Take the card(s) you want and add them to your pile of cards that are on the beach. If a certain deck runs out of cards, you may no longer hire that type of employee until cards become available again. However, you may hire such a card if you immediately train it to a higher level in the training sub-phase of this turn (so you don't actually have to take the card).

(Emphasis is mine)
