Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS) is now accepting nominations for its annual America’s Best Restroom Contest, where the “ top 10 places to go—when you’ve got to go” are identified and then voted on by the Internet public in an all out battle of the bowls. “Cintas launched the America’s Best Restroom Contest twelve years ago to raise awareness of the importance of hygiene and to salute those businesses which strive for restroom excellence in both function and design,” said John Engel, Cintas’ Senior Marketing Manager. For more than 80 years, Cintas has serviced businesses nationwide and their clientele, who recognize the correlation between clean restrooms and customer satisfaction and retention. “It makes smart business sense - everyone can appreciate a clean, well-maintained and innovatively designed restroom,” Engel added. Do you own your own establishment? Are you the creative mind or part of a team behind the restroom design inside of one? Or have you patronized a particularly memorable facility? Nominate a deserving bathroom online today at www.bestrestroom.com . The contest is open to any non-residential restroom in the U.S. that is accessible to the general public. Entries will be judged on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements. “Nominees and finalists run the gamut, from historical buildings or five star luxury hotels and restaurants in big cities, to gas stations along remote highways and mom & pop style diners in the rural Midwest,” says Sabrina Zimring, Survey Editor for Cintas’ America’s Best Restroom Contest. Visit the Best Restroom Facebook page, Twitter account, YouTube Channel and Instagram to post comments, receive contest updates, share photos or upload videos; links to the sites are on the contest homepage. Ten finalists will be announced in August, at which time online voting will begin. The winner and runner-up will be revealed this fall during a nationally publicized media event, and the top vote getters will secure a place in Cintas’ America’s Best Restroom Contest Hall of Fame.
