for a good laugh
If you look at every post about new breweries, new businesses, brewery expansion, you will see one theme: double the time, double the cost.
So I suggest, you should plan on six employees. If that does not meet your plan: hold off, find more cash, until you can pay all six from brew day one.
But realize, I am closer to right than you are.
Double your cost estimates, half your sales estimates: if it is still profitable do it; if not, then re-do the plan.
Now stop laughing.
