Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be the immigration attorney helping you today.
Actually, legally there is no certain number of required employees in the US that must be hired for an E2 business. However, in order to have the best chances, the business should have at least a few employees that would normally be considered reasonably in a typical business like yours to operate it. The problem is that if no employees are hired, then USCIS may consider that your business investment is being set up just to support you, which is prohibited for the E2. If you can't hire more than the part time worker right away, it may still be okay as long as you provide a good business plan with a 5 year plan setting out specifically when you will be planning to hire employees.
Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!
