Uniforms, even if they are t-shirts and jeans are not frivolous, not the critical path, but, a nice clean appearance, and uniform look, does a lot to make a place look like a place I would want to eat.

He said he felt like it meant he respected the customer, and he figured nobody want to eat food from a guy in a dirty, stained apron.
