Again I think the "labor budget" varies a lot from shop to shop. A 2 person, say husband wife team, might work extremely well together and a third person standing there might not be beneficial. Maybe because it seems awkward it is a new face, or they aren't able to add value to the coffee conversations.
Other shops that do have bar backs, are probably much busier. These shops probably have a flow and being able to handle the bar is not an easy task.
For our shop everyone goes cashier -> food / drink building -> bar back -> bar pm -> bar am
Labor budget is $500 a day, so I hope you don't cost that much haha

Tony, I agree with most of what has already been said. Hire consultants, go to trade shows, even check out Camp Pull-A-Shot. Take a look at The American Barista & Coffee School through Bellissimo, they are well respected people. Go interview for some part time work at a local shop. You are in Charlotte, Dilworth Coffee, Smelly Cat Coffee all come to mind there.
What area of Charlotte are you looking to open your shop?
