    Default Restaurant staff

    I am hoping someone out there can help me.
    I have to make a hypothetical company for an assignment, and I have chosen to make a hypothetical restaurant.
    Thing is I am not sure of the staff numbers and the staff structure.
    Can someone help me with an idea as to how many staff a restaurant would have and what their jobs are?
    I'm thinking - owner, managers, chefs/cooks and floor staff?

    Just a local family type restaurant. I don't really need to base it on how many people will be dining, I just need the staff structure. Maybe something not too big, but not too small, if that helps?
    I was thinking breakfast, lunch and dinner? Definitely not 24 hours.

    The restaurant that I work at.... We have approx 300 seats
    Each lunch and dinner shift (waitress department) we have a hostess (meet and greet), a seater (seats people), a girl on the till that takes peoples orders, three people getting the meals from the kitchen and taking them out to the tables as well as making coffee/cakes and two people clearing tables.

    In the kitchen we usually seem to have 8 or so chefs (some qualified, some apprentices), a couple of dishwashers.

    Elsewhere we have 4ish bartenders, 2 glassies and a couple of managers overseeing the whole production. Do this lunch and dinner.

    Obviously this is a large-scale restaurant, but gives an idea of staff:customer ratio...

    Default Restaurant staff

    So u would have a front of house manager and a chef, 4 supervisors who usually handle the cashier and 12 to 16 staff, you'll need 1 staff per 30/40 guests for 2 shifts (breakfast and lunch are usually covered by the same staff) plus you'll need to have back up for sickies and busy days so I would say 6 full time staff and the rest part time and casual, 2 experienced baristas for breakfast and 2 beverage staff for dinner, usually those are included in floor staff count and can do either duties.
    Kitchen you would have 2 sous chefs and 6 cooks. 3 or 4 stewarding staff.
    Hope this helps!

    Ok so are all of those for one shift?

    I need an all up tally of the overall staff numbers..its for my company profile.

    So Company XYZ has x floor staff, x chefs, x baristas, kind of thing.

    EEK I feel like my head is going to explode. I've only ever worked in fast food and it's so different. I just don't want to have to go into all the franchisee stuff in my assignment so going for a locally owned restaurant seems a lot easier

    Thanks so much for the replies so far!
