First Impressions Mean Everything…Do Your Restaurant Employees Look the Part?

Waiters are the backbone of any restaurant.

More goes into an excellent restaurant than just immaculate food. Of course, that’s one of the most critical factors that can help you decide if your money was well-spent. However, presentation means everything. Not only should the food on the plate look proper but your employees should look the part as well. Waiters are the backbone of the restaurant and the first friendly, welcoming faces that the customer sees. Their uniforms should be well-polished. ┬áHere at Lord Baltimore, we have a few tips on how your waiters and waitresses can look their best and most importantly, add value to your restaurant.

Identification Matters

You want your restaurant to stand out. One suggestion is making sure that your logo and the name of your company is on every uniform will make your restaurant memorable. Does your restaurant have a unique color scheme? Incorporating color will not only help with branding but give customers an aesthetic quality in which to view. We provide custom emblems and embroidery.

Think About the Culture Of Your Restaurant

If your restaurant is classic or traditional, make sure that the uniforms match the culture. In this type of restaurant, an idea would be to go for neutral colors. Neutral colors are professional. Typically, waiters and waitresses in an upscale restaurant wear black and white uniforms. If your restaurant is casual, kid-friendly, and not as upscale, then your colors do not necessarily have to be neutral. The colors can be fun and vibrant, so long as that is the culture of your business.

Make Sure That Your Employees are Comfortable.

Your restaurant is only as successful as the quality of your employees. If your employees are not comfortable in their uniforms, then they can’t perform well. With spring being here and the weather heating up, you want to make sure that your employees are wearing breathable fabric. Also, make sure that you choose a material that doesn’t take a lot of maintenance. If the uniforms are hard to clean, then this means that your employees won’t look their best. Not only does the cleanliness of your establishment matter but your employees should also look well-kempt, polished, and professional.
