Points To Consider When Choosing The Best Apron For Your FOH Team

Choosing the right aprons for your front of house (FOH) staff is no easy task. With so many options on the market, it can be difficult to know where to start and what features are essential for a comfortable and functional apron.

Cream Collection is here to help you navigate this world of aprons and find the perfect one for your FOH team.

Let’s take a look at three considerations when choosing an apron: function, style, and comfort.

Apron Function

When it comes to the function of an apron, the goal should be to equip FOH staff with aprons that don't restrict them in their day-to-day tasks. Consider the task of the staff member and what the apron needs to provide. Does the team need multiple pockets to hold multiple gadgets? Or does the team member merely need to protect their clothing and look professional, and hence pockets may attract storing gadgets which create a messy look. 

How long does the apron apron need to be? Shorter aprons are less restricting for movement, whilst longer aprons suit a sophisticated environment. 

Consider too, how the apron is secured to the body, cross back strap aprons offer freedom of movement, whilst neck strap aprons are quick and easy to slip on.

Additionally, if you want to add durability to your aprons and have them last longer, opting for commercial quality fabrics such as durable organic cotton will be a good investment.

Apron Style

The style and colour of an apron is also important as it will reflect on your business’ image and branding. To make sure FOH staff always look polished and professional we recommend opting for solid colours. No patterns or stripes as this confuses the customer if it doesn't match your interior's decor exactly.

Adding your venues logo to the front of the apron is great for strengthening your brand. Consider embroidering your logo to the apron to amplify your brand image to your customers.

Apron Comfort

The most critical element is comfort, as this plays a major role when selecting FOH aprons. Make sure there are adjustable straps so people of different sizes can use the same apron comfortably.

In addition, remember not all fabric types are suitable for everyone; fabric containing polyester can cause skin irritations and trap heat against the body which could impact productivity negatively!


When choosing the right apron for your waitstaff, there are several important factors to consider. Fabric type, quality, and style should all be taken into account. You may also want to consider how easy it is to clean or maintain a particular apron. Lastly, customer service support can be invaluable in helping you find the perfect product for your team’s needs.
