Building Your Restaurant's Uniform

Uniforms are important parts of your restaurant's aesthetic. If your servers are dressed shabbily, or if your bartenders look unkempt and unprofessional, patrons will doubt not only the quality of your food but the value of your restaurant as a whole. What can you do to send a good impression? Here are just four things to keep in mind when dressing your staff.

1. Aprons

There are several types of apron typically found in restaurants. For example, hostesses wear waist aprons while cooks wear bib aprons or bistro aprons. Make sure you order all kinds to suit everyone on your payroll and not just your front-room staff.

 2. Ties The right tie can bring a look together. Conversely, it can also destroy the entire outfit if it's poorly chosen or badly worn. Give serious thought to the ties your employees will be wearing.

 3. Shoes Black shoes are standard in the restaurant business; they won't show wear and tear like other colors. You might also want to mandate that shoes have no-slip bottoms or that they all have laces instead of velcro or straps.

 4. Hair

While not technically part of the uniform, you'll definitely want to regulate how your staff wears their hair. Otherwise you'll get complaints from all kinds of customers when they find strands in their soup!

These are just a few things to consider when putting together the uniforms of your restaurant staff. At the end of the day, the decision is entirely yours. Order today and reap the benefits tomorrow!

Cozy Electric Blanket for Ashley

My son Ashley loves his comforter very much. He couldn’t sleep a night without it even if it smells bad and look dirty. I think he finds ease every time it touches his skin and makes him fall asleep. Most kids are like that, right? The problem arises when we need to wash it. That is why we decided to buy him another sheet which is an alternative comfty sheet for him but unfortunately we haven’t found any that looks almost the same or have at least the same texture with his favorite one.

My uncle Albert who resides in Canada knew our dilemma and he suggested that we buy an electric blanket instead than buying a regular comforter from local stores. He already bought his set from an online store and he wanted us to check it out and give it a try.  I am currently browsing to check what he was talking about and by the way we are glancing thru their gallery, I can say they really have elegant and exquisite collection. Hopefully we can find the best blanket for Ashley. :)

Our Slides Gave Up

We really need to change our drawer slides in our closet. The slides on our five years old cabinet has finally gave up from the open and close action that it has experienced and the never ending horseplay that my kiddos has done which made the slides even more unmanageable. I thought to seek a friend’s help in seeking some soft closing drawer slides and luckily she knows an online store that can satisfy my needs. was the website she was talking about. In about an hour I will have my final order, hopefully it will be delivered in our footsteps soon.
