Sushi chef hat


A black AFC chef hat with black netting on the top. It has a slight adjustable back where it can adjust to fit different head sizes. The style is fitted at the base and slightly loose at the top.

The red chef coat, accompanied by a black chef hat and a short black apron, has been worn by AFC sushi chefs in the Publix supermarket’s Greenwise Stores since 2009. This jacket is purchased through Chef Works, Inc., a manufacturer and distributor of customizable chef clothing. AFC Corporation customized this generic style of jacket by adding the AFC logo on the right chest area and right sleeve, and the color of it reflects AFC Corporation’s intention of having the uniform blend in with the overall color scheme of the local store.
