Restaurant uniforms evolve to serve several purposes

Nearly one in 10 workers, or 13.1 million people are employed in the restaurant industry, and for most, that means some type of uniform.

His workers now wear designer jeans, shirts and even hats by Kansas City’s nationally recognized Baldwin Denim.
