Sushi Chef Hat

Description
This Advanced Fresh Concepts Corporation (AFC) uniform hat was worn at a Tysons, Virginia, Harris Teeter supermarket in 2009. The hat has a white and blue striped band with white netting on the top. The band is made with a stretchy material at the back to adjust to different head sizes and shapes. The pattern around the band of the hat coordinates with the striped pattern on the sleeves of the blue chef coat.
In 2008, AFC designed a uniform hat and coat to align with Harris Teeters desires to distinguish itself from other supermarkets. The color choice was determined by the color scheme of the supermarket where it was worn, thus reflecting the general ambiance of the store. In later years the store adopted the original AFC white coat and hat.
