Waitstaff often take their appearance for granted. They may have one or two outfits and not have time to clean them often, food stains can leave residual discolorations, or repeated washing can take its toll on the fresh crisp look of the outfit. Many restaurants and bars provide uniforms to promote branding and avoid some of these issues.
It is important to always look your best. You make an impression on every new customer – it is like a job interview each time. Your appearance will make a difference in your tips. Waitstaff that are dressed like a slob make customers unconsciously think or wonder:
Is the food going to be infested with something bad?
Their credit card number may not be safe.
You won’t deliver good service because you don’t pay attention to detail.
