So, we think that the busier season may actually occur at the beginning of spring with events such as Spring Break, Mothers Day, high school and college graduations, Fathers Day (Summer), Independence Day (Summer), and Labor Day (Summer). Many of these events would be a one time deal and so some of the employees may need to work extra hours. However, the summer months would give Max's the opportunity to hire students who are looking to earn extra money and this may coincide with the busiest time of the year.
