St. Albert Honda Drives Home the Title of Canada’s Best Restroom®

October 3, 2018

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 3, 2018--Pump the brakes! Cintas Canada, Ltd. is proud to announce that the St. Albert Honda dealership is the winner of the 2018 Canada’s Best Restroom ® contest. After receiving the most votes, the St. Albert Honda dealership claims the top prize of $2,500 in Cintas products and services to keep its washrooms as clean as a shiny new car .

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be the winner of the 2018 Canada’s Best Restroom contest,” said Ross Hodgins, Owner, St. Albert Honda. “The customer’s first impression is important in any retail experience, so we put just as much thought into our restrooms as our showrooms and service areas because we want to provide the best experience. We’re fans of our user-friendly, hands-free and auto-themed washrooms, so we’re excited to learn that Canadians find our facilities worthy of the title.”

The St. Albert Honda washrooms were modeled after the dealership colours and feature an accent wall intended to represent the revolutions per minute (RPM) meter in a vehicle and the redline effect. The revving restrooms promote convenience and cleanliness with specialty fixtures, such as touchless faucets, soap dispensers, hand dryers, towel dispensers, automatic air fresheners and deluxe baby changing stations in both female and male washrooms. The hands-free “stepNpull” door opener helps guests avoid contact with door handles when exiting the washrooms.

“With five clean, completely unique and well-designed finalists, this year’s competition was not an easy feat,” said Candice Raynsford, Marketing Manager, Cintas Canada Ltd. “The Alberta community rallied behind the St. Albert Honda dealership, proving just how big of an impact washrooms have on the public. We’re pleased to present the 2018 award to our first ever car dealership!”

St. Albert Honda won over the public at several summer events, including the annual St. Albert’s Rock’n August event where the dealership hosted a barbeque and promoted their participation in the contest. They also spread the word via e-newsletters, social media posts and local media opportunities. In addition, St. Alberta Honda received local, regional and national media coverage. Most importantly, their loyal, enthusiastic staff, family and friends supported them throughout the entire contest.

The 2018 finalists were selected based on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements. Online voting was open to the public from July 16 through August 17, which produced the following results:

1. St. Albert Honda – St. Albert, Alberta 2. Erin Mills Town Centre – Mississauga, Ontario 3. Anh and Chi – Vancouver, British Columbia 4. Saskatchewan Science Centre – Regina, Saskatchewan 5. Oretta – Toronto, Ontario

Last year’s winner, the Bayview Shopping Centre in Toronto, Ontario, took the title for its elegant chandeliers and stylish nursing room, equipped with a changing station, sink and cushioned chairs.
