|TORONTO, ON – March 7, 2010 – Nominations are now being accepted for the first annual Canada’s Best Restroom Award – presented by Cintas Canada Ltd. Submissions can be made at www.bestrestroom.com through May 10, 2010.|
|Canada’s Best Restroom Award is a new extension of the highly successful America’s Best Restroom Contest, launched by Cintas to draw attention to the importance of clean, appealing restrooms in public places.|
|“There is no question that restroom hygiene plays a big role in determining customer satisfaction and repeat business,” said Cintas Canada Marketing Manager Leslie Molin. “When we learned how successful our American colleagues were in sharing this message and how much fun the public was having nominating and voting on these extravagant restrooms, we knew it was time to show off our own great facilities here in Canada.”|
|Up to 10 finalists will be announced in July, at which time the Internet public will be asked to cast its votes. The winner will be announced in September and receive the coveted CBR plaque of recognition from Cintas during a formal ceremony and media event.|
|The contest is open to any non-residential restroom that is free of charge and open to employees, visitors or the general public. Nominators are not required to have a professional relationship with the business or staff that manages the facility, but personal experience is encouraged.|
|Cintas created the award to honour businesses that combine good hygiene with functionality and exceptional style in their public restrooms. Past champions have boasted breathtaking skyline views, unique décor and state-of-the-art fixtures.|
|Recent winners of the America’s Best Restroom Award include the Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin; the Fort Smith, Arkansas Airport; Jungle Jim’s International Market in Fairfield, Ohio; Hermitage Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee; and in 2009, Shoji Tabuchi Theatre in Branson, Missouri.
