Even at a modest $3M investment at $30 per head you'd need to bring in ~60 people per day, 365 days per year, to break even and that would still take 5 years!!!

And that doesn't account for things like taxes, insurance, wages for your employees, utility bills, maintenance, etc.
Kinda hard to argue that logic.
