From its beginnings in 1940, McDonald’s Company Ltd. has reached over 100 countries and opened nearly 32,500 restaurants. Designed for the managerial team of the first McDonalds in Japan (opened in Tokyo in May 1971), this unisex manager’s hat features red cloth that is decorated with two yellow McDonald’s logos and with the word “Manager” in white. For sanitary purposes, the white cloth hairnet fits over the head.
Over the past 40 years, McDonald’s uniform style has evolved significantly, as changes to the design take place almost every four years. Within 27 years there had been 11 changes in uniform style.
