Contest Information

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 Restroom® 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 Restroom® Contest is a great way to promote your own business, or bring some recognition to one of your favorite establishments. Do you know a remarkable washroom worthy of consideration? Please share your experiences, nominate and vote!

“Most of our visitors come to experience marine life close-up, but our restrooms have quickly become another thrilling exhibit guests seek out,” said Dr. Amram Knishinsky, founder, OdySea Aquarium. “The national and local publicity we received through the contest was tremendous.

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!
