Can you tell how a
company feels about its customers just from walking into their washroom? We think that an organization’s commitment to
customer service is apparent from how it facilitates and maintains it’s public
restrooms. Cintas feels the same, and
has been running a Best Restroom Award contest to find and recognize the best public bathrooms in Canada since
A duty-free shop on
the Canada-US border in Ontario called 1000
Islands Duty Free was
given the award last year for their high-end, well-maintained washroom. Combining classic elegance with modern design
sense, the winning washrooms feature bowl-style sinks, shined granite counters,
and private room-style toilet stalls. As
most public restrooms employ standard metal dividers riddled with gaps, the
difference in quality is readily apparent.
This will be the
contest’s sixth year here in Canada, and we anticipate finalists to be
announced sometime in the summer. As we
wait, we at the Gentlemen Plumbers can’t help by hope that a local washroom
here in Medicine Hat will take the crown.
