Spotlight on the Bib Apron

Bib aprons! This month’s product spotlight. When you think of an apron, there are many images that come to mind.  This even applies to the more specific ‘restaurant apron’.

Without going into the history of this simple garment, the use has pretty much always been the same. Aprons are used to protect the clothing underneath. And in the food and beverage industry, this is a necessity!

As a business owner or team member, you understand the importance of keeping a tidy appearance for guests.  When working with food, this can be a little tricky; hence, you have the almighty apron!


 They provide the most coverage as they often fall to the knees or below.

Typically, there is a square neckline with adjustable neck straps.  A tie waist provides a secure fit.

For example, bib aprons are commonly found on:

  • wait staff
  • line cooks
  • dish room staff

Therefore, these aprons are typically made of polyester or a cotton blend. (Waterproof or water-resistant materials are better suited for dish room staff to provide protection against splashes, etc.)

A Unified Team

What is the perfect apron for your establishment?

Is it an apron with pockets? An adjustable butcher apron? From bistro aprons to waist aprons, there is an apron for your team (and any body type).

First and foremost, choose from a variety apron styles that are available in quality fabrics. If you do not want stains to be so visible, you may opt for a black bib apron. (However, it is important to keep in mind that a black bib apron may show fading over time.)

Bib aprons provide a protective layer, shielding the employees’ clothing from spills, splatters, and stains. While commonplace in a busy kitchen environment, you can keep your team looking as clean as possible. This helps maintain a professional appearance but also prolongs the lifespan of the staff’s uniforms; therefore, you can be reducing replacement costs.
