Cintas Crowns Ohio’s Two Cities Pizza as America’s Best Restroom®
CINCINNATI — September 21, 2021 — No matter how you slice it, one facility stole a pizza the public’s heart. Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS), is proud to name Two Cities Pizza in Mason, OH the winner of the 2021 America’s Best Restroom® contest. As this year’s winner, Two Cities Pizza will get to properly crown their golden thrones with prizes from Cintas. This includes a Cintas UltraClean® restroom cleaning service and $2,500 in Cintas products and services for restroom cleaning or facility management to keep their restrooms Ready for the Workday®, along with a coveted spot in the America’s Best Restroom Hall of Fame.
Walking into Two Cities Pizza Company is nothing short of an experience. Two of America’s most iconic cities, New York and Chicago, live loudly in the decor and atmosphere of this concept restaurant. Taxis surround the building, steel girders line the ceiling, Wrigley Field is paid tribute to with an ivy wall and 400-foot marker, but the most talked about element of this brand aside from the pizza itself, is the New York City subway station. The restroom is fully outfitted with a subway platform, train car, station stops playing over the speaker, authentic subway handles above the sinks, and even graffiti on the walls. A properly taken selfie sent to a friend in New York is good enough to convince them you made a surprise visit to the Big Apple. Just make sure you get off at the right stop before your pizza gets cold.
“We’re thrilled to be voted by the public as America’s Best Restroom,” said Christy Greves, Director of Brand Development Two Cities Pizza Co. “We knew people loved our pizza and it’s great to know they feel the same way about our restrooms. We’re grateful to everyone who voted for us.”

Last year, Colorado’s self-cleaning restroom in Bancroft Park took home the America’s Best Restroom title. The restrooms are set up to self-clean after every 30 uses, and a park maintenance supervisor is alerted via an app when toilet paper or other supplies are running low. The exterior is wrapped with historic photos and facts about the historic Old Colorado City neighborhood where it’s located.
