Branding is a subtle art form. It is the accumulation of carefully orchestrated details that work together to create a specific message. While you might have paid careful attention to lighting, music and place settings in your restaurant, you may have also given staff uniforms short shrift. The appearance of your team is an integral part of making a great first impression and creating a specific experience for your bar and restaurant patrons. The right uniform can reinforce your brand and send a clear message about exactly the type of establishment you want to be.
Managing a bar and restaurant means having to deal with employee turnover rates that you just don't see in other industries. That means more time spent hiring and training staff and less time spent on other areas of the business. While high turnover is part of the industry, there are some steps you can take to make sure that your employees want to stick around.
