A Color-Coded System
This story reveals another interesting aspect of the Hooters system. Apparently, the color of a waitress’s name tag was far from random and could indicate both age and the waitress’s level of training. Out of all the crazy uniform rules Hooters has, this is definitely one of the least creepy ones.
I’m not sure why this system was necessary, but perhaps it saved time in some instances. Of course, it can be difficult to tell who has and has not yet turned 21, so having a color-coded system seems like an efficient way to make those facts known. But I’m guessing that doesn’t stop all customers from being inappropriate with underage waitresses.
