Having a good menu and tables is great but aprons also add to the ambience of your restaurant. Aprons make your staff feel protected and comfortable so it’s essential your restaurant has the best aprons. In this blog, we’ll guide you on the important considerations in choosing the right apron.
When choosing the right apron for your restaurant, the style should embody what your restaurant is all about. Pick an apron in accordance with your restaurant’s theme (i.e., casual or smart) and brand colour. Your customers don’t miss details so it’s important your table linens, restaurant and uniforms are all in synergy to create a consistent look.
Researching the material goes a long way in assuring long-term quality. It’s easy to fall into the trap of buying cheap material to save money but by doing so, you’ll have a material that is flammable and poorly durable when it comes to washing.
The general rule of thumb is to avoid buying synthetic fibres like acrylic or 100% cotton aprons because they are flammable and not the safest to use.
If you’re looking for a material that is durable, lightweight, and easy to launder, look no further than 100% polyester! An added bonus to this material is that it doesn’t shrink and is wrinkle-resistant.
In addition, poly-cotton and leather are also known as reliable apron materials.
Choosing the right apron is all about finer details and presentation. Your staff are going to be working long shifts so it’s important you consider design and functionality.
For front-of-house staff, consider aprons with pockets so they can put any tips, pens, and pads inside. Not only does this make it easier for them but it makes your restaurant look professional. Pockets are also important for your chef’s apron in case they need to put their towels or utensils inside.
Additionally, you want to ensure you are meeting safety standards. Double-check that all the strings are secured and not flimsy. All it takes is one loose string for an accident or spillage to happen.
