The Best Restroom Award 2015

How an organization decorates, facilitates, and maintains its public washroom can say a lot about how that organization regards and treats its customers. In 2010, Cintas decided to expand its annual Best Restroom Award contest up here to Canada.  It’s mission?  To find and recognize memorable public bathrooms from around Canada.

Last year’s prize was awarded to 1000 Islands Duty Free in Lansdowne, Ontario, and it’s not difficult to see why.  Boasting a clean, high-class atmosphere coupled with an elegant mixture of classic and modern design, travellers making their last stop before crossing the Canada-US border couldn’t ask for a better pit stop.  Bowl-style sinks sit atop polished granite counters, and toilets are each given their own privacy-enhancing room – a welcome change to the cold and wide-gap dividers so common in public restrooms.

The contest is now entering its 6th year with finalists likely to be announced this summer.

Being based right here in Alberta, we at The Gentlemen Plumbers are anxious to see if a washroom from Calgary will make the cut this year!
