Cintas opens nominations for 2022 America's Best Restroom nationwide contest
Cintas Corporation is seeking Instagram-worthy public washrooms for its 2022 America's Best Restroom contest. The initiative celebrates businesses that develop and maintain exceptional restroom facilities.
"Nearly three-quarters of Americans (74%) say dirty restrooms would cause them to have a negative perception of a business," says Sean Mulcahey, marketing manager, Cintas. "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."
Nominees for the contest will be judged on five criteria: cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements. Cintas will select 10 finalists and in July, the public will have the opportunity to vote for the 2022 grand prize winner. The facility that receives the most votes will win a Cintas UltraClean restroom cleaning service and $2,500 in facility services or washroom cleaning from Cintas while also being recognised as a first-rate public restroom.
Last year's winner, Two Cities Pizza in Mason, Ohio, was crowned America's Best Restroom for its washrooms designed to capture the atmosphere of New York and Chicago. The facility is fully outfitted with a subway platform, train car, station stops playing over the speaker, authentic subway handles above the basins and even graffiti on the walls.
The company’s director of brand development, Christy Greves, says of the win: "We were overwhelmed by the national recognition we received throughout the contest. We're grateful to everyone who has visited our location to check out our award-winning restrooms."
Anyone can submit a nominee now through June 17th at www.bestrestroom.com
