Contest Information

"We received so much positive media attention and exposure throughout the contest--both in our local region and beyond."
- Patricia Evans, Communications Manager at Longwood Gardens, 2014 Winner

While most people would likely characterize their trip to the restroom as a fairly unremarkable experience, we at Cintas think it should be unforgettable! Have you seen a unique, impressive restroom? Maybe it’s elegant, eclectic or downright quirky. As long as it’s immaculate, inviting and, most of all, memorable, it’s fair game!

The reality is that restrooms matter to the public. How a business maintains its facilities is a reflection of a business’ commitment to customer service.

Now, a growing number of companies are going the extra mile to create the most memorable restrooms imaginable, and we are recognizing those establishments with Cintas’ America’s Best RestroomŪ award. Cintas is on a mission to locate America’s porcelain pioneers who are taking dramatic steps to create unforgettable facilities.

The Cintas’ America’s Best RestroomŪ Contest is a great way to promote your own business, or bring some recognition to one of your favorite establishments. Nominate and vote for your favorite public restroom now. We will crown the 16th annual Cintas’ America’s Best RestroomŪ King of the Throne this fall!

Do you know a remarkable washroom worthy of consideration? Please share your experiences, nominate and vote.

"We became the “potty” talk of the town. Everywhere I went people told me they had voted or asking me what position we were in. It was fun!"

"Winning the America’s Best Restroom Contest was some of the best exposure The Fountain on Locust has enjoyed. We heard from folks from all over the country when they read about us or saw us on TV. We had a great spike in business just from people wanting to stop in to see the award winning restrooms. It was great fun and really put us on the map! Our customers came together to rally for us. We were overwhelmed with gratitude for them!"
- Joy Christensen (Owner), The Fountain on Locust, 2010 Best Restroom Winner

"The America’s Best Restroom Contest has had a significantly positive impact on our business. The induction into the hall of fame has officially put us on the map when it comes to Restroom companies and has increased our visibility among our clients."
