of year, to coincide with the number of guests, with the tourist season
typically starting around Memorial Day each year. One wait staff employee can
serve 50 guests. When a bus staff employee is added, the pair can serve 75
guests. At 76 guests, the café adds a second wait staff employee, for a total
of 2 waiters and one busser. Analysis of guest numbers can support future
