Cintas Launches Search for America’s Best Restroom

April 11, 2022 Cintas Launches Search for America’s Best Restroom

Cintas Corp. is accepting nominations for its 21st annual America’s Best Restroom® Contest.

Established by Cintas in 2002, the award program honors nonresidential, publicly accessible restrooms that place hygiene and style at the top of their priority list and recognize the parallel between clean restrooms and customer retention. Entries will be judged on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality, and unique design elements. The deadline for nominations is June 17.

Ten finalists will be announced in July, at which time online voting for the winning restroom will begin on Cintas’ website. The winner and runners-up will be announced in late fall, and the most popular entries will be enshrined in Cintas’ America’s Best Restroom Contest Hall of Fame. The grand prize winner will also receive a Cintas UltraClean® restroom cleaning along with US$2,500 worth of facility services.

“Nearly three-quarters of Americans (74%) say dirty restrooms would cause them to have a negative perception of a business,” said Sean Mulcahey, Cintas marketing manager. “Facility cleanliness can impact the perception of a business. This annual contest highlights facilities that are making safety, cleanliness, and hygiene a priority to provide a positive experience for their customers.”
