6.1 Personnel Plan


Optimum customer service is important, even critical, for the success of Sammy's. But the owners also realize the high (and expanding) cost of employees. Fortunately, in the miniature golf industry, a high number of customers can be served efficiently by relatively few employees.

Sammy's will require one staff member for off peak hours. Additional staff will be scheduled in accordance with demand determined by daily attendance patterns, eg: more staff will be required during summer months and during weekend and evening hours.


Sammy's will have a salaried manager on staff during the months the facility is open.

Assistant Manager

The assistant manager will be an hourly employee working for $9.35 per hour.

Part-time Staff

Part-time staff will be used as needed for optimal customer service.
