The waiting staff are not the ones cooking the food, so they don't effect it at all. Still, the company isn't built on the food. It's built on having, most often, well endowed waitresses serve the food. For this company, the food isn't what makes it. Its the serving staff.
In my restaurant example, I would want my waiting staff to be visibly of the same ethnicity of the food. That doesn't mean that other jobs aren't available for others.
Let's move on to another issue. Let's say that I run a business that prides itself on its Christian image, and it sells religious merchandise, but is not a church. Should I be able to refuse employment to LGBT applicants?
