Cintas Officially Opens Nominations for 2022 America’s Best Restroom® Nationwide Contest
CINCINNATI - April 11, 2022 - Cintas Corporation (Nasdaq: CTAS) is seeking Instagram-worthy public restrooms for its 2022 America’s Best Restroom® contest. The initiative celebrates businesses that develop and maintain exceptional restroom facilities. Anyone can submit a nomination now through June 17th at www.bestrestroom.com.
“Nearly three-quarters of Americans (74%) say dirty restrooms would cause them to have a negative perception of a business,” said 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 restroom that receives the most votes will win a Cintas UltraClean® restroom cleaning service and $2,500 in facility services or restroom cleaning from Cintas while also being recognized as a first-rate public restroom.
Net income was $315.4 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to $258.4 million in last year's third quarter. Third quarter of fiscal 2022 diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $2.97 compared to $2.37 in last year's third quarter. Fiscal 2022 third quarter diluted EPS contained $0.28 from the gain on an equity method investment transaction, which included a related $0.07 tax rate benefit. Excluding this gain and the related tax impact, fiscal 2022 third quarter diluted EPS was $2.69 compared to $2.37 in last year's third quarter, a 13.5% increase from last year's diluted EPS.
Last year’s winner, Two Cities Pizza in Mason, Ohio was crowned America’s Best Restroom for its restrooms designed to capture the atmosphere of New York and Chicago. The restroom is fully outfitted with a subway platform, train car, station stops playing over the speaker, authentic subway handles above the sinks, and even graffiti on the walls.
“We were overwhelmed by the national recognition we received throughout the contest,” said Christy Greves, Director of Brand Development, Two Cities Pizza Co. “We’re grateful to everyone who has visited our location to check out our award-winning restrooms.”
