2016 Canada’s Best Restroom Winner Sees Boom in Business
Nominations are open now through June 16
MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - April 11, 2017 - Last year, the Whitecourt Esso Super Station was named Canada’s Best Restroom® by Cintas Canada, Ltd., and its owner has already seen a boom in business. Whitecourt took home the top toilet throne for its decorative lighting and eye-catching wall tiles, paired with sleek countertops.
“Since winning the contest, we have seen an increase in business despite the continuing poor economic situation here in Alberta,” said Landon Hommy, owner, Whitecourt Esso Super Station. “The extra attention we’ve received as a result of winning the Canada’s Best Restroom contest has had a positive, long-term impact on our business.”
Every day, the Whitecourt Esso Super Station has new customers stopping in to see the award-winning restrooms, as well as many returning ones. The overwhelming positive reviews have shined a spotlight on the super station and the town of Whitecourt.
“No matter the business, the Canada’s Best Restroom contest provides unique recognition for a typically overlooked aspect of the customer experience,” added Hommy. “We received a ton of support from the local community, so it was a lot of fun seeing the excitement around our business and the award.”
If you know about a wonderful, unique or interesting washroom, we want to hear about it. Now through June 16th, nominations will be accepted online at www.bestrestroom.com/Canada for the eighth annual Canada’s Best Restroom contest.
“Each year, we’re impressed with the number and variety of washrooms we receive from across the country,” said Candice Raynsford, Assistant Marketing Manager, Cintas Canada Ltd. “Washrooms can have a lasting impact on customers, so we’re proud to celebrate those establishments that are dedicated to providing well-maintained and memorable restrooms.”
This contest is open to any non-residential restroom in Canada that is accessible to the general public. Entries will be judged based on five criteria: cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements. Stay tuned this summer to find out who the five fabulous finalists are and vote for your favourite. The winner will receive the royal restroom treatment from Cintas with $2,500 in facility services.
