I am looking to purchase and open a diner with 42 seats. Can you wonderful professionals tell me how many cooks I would need? I will be there to throw the grub around as well! The diner hours will be Tues-Sunday and we will be open a total of 43 hrs. I am going to staff 2 full time wait staff Tues-Sun and then 1 part time wait staff all day Sat & Sun. I am just not sure how many cooks I might need since I will be there to help with that area of the kitchen. I am being told I would need 2 cooks, but that just seems like a lot for 42 seats since I see Waffle House running one cook and they usually are running about 50-60 seats I believe.
