Hygiene & Cleanliness
The great thing about hospitality uniforms is that they are regularly and thoroughly washed, ensuring that your establishment reinforces an appealing image of hygiene and cleanliness.
Whether you own a restaurant, hotel or entertainment venue, your employees will inevitably experience food and beverage spills – if they’re not taken care of, their dirty uniforms will reflect badly upon your company’s image.
With Alsco’s Rental Managed Program, you won’t have to go through the hassle of laundering and ironing your own soiled uniforms, giving you spare time to focus on your core business operations. Through our punctual rental services, Your garments are supplied, collected, cleaned, pressed and delivered right back to your business’s door on an agreed schedule.
To maximise hygiene and cleanliness, Alsco’s hospitality uniforms are cleaned to stringent Australian Laundry Standards AS/NZS 4146 2000, providing your staff with a clean barrier between clothing and food and gives you peace of mind.
Safety & Protection
Having the best quality hospitality uniforms means you could potentially prevent injuries and accidents in your workplace. In any hospitality environment, there are various hazards – from food and beverage spillage, dangerous equipment randomly lying around, handling glassware, cuts and burns from preparing food, and lifting heavy objects.
With Alsco’s food and beverage uniforms, we ensure that your garments have high-quality protective features and are replenished on a weekly basis. For instance, we supply chef uniforms with double-breasted fronts, helping prevent any burns by creating a barrier between the staff members’ skin and hot appliances or food spillages. We also offer long sleeves which help prevent injury from heat, along with mandarin collars, split cuff and underarm vents for added comfort and durability.
Professional Company Image
There’s nothing better than having branded hospitality uniforms when building a more professional company image. From a marketing perspective, having superior-quality hospitality uniforms means that you can build branding cohesion, which then fosters a strong sense of belonging and teamwork across the organisation.
In fact, according to study by Ashwini K. Poojary from the Sawyer Business School, and Suffolk University in Boston, 73.5% of respondents found that uniforms are better than TV advertising and 75.7% of respondents stated that uniforms are more efficient than billboard advertising. Additionally, 56.1% of respondents said that uniforms are more powerful than Internet advertising.
