PSA: A quest for putting Victoria's BEST restrooms on the map! Nominations OPEN

Frequent readers of this blog will know that I have an obsession with restaurant bathrooms. I just feel like when a restauranteur has put as much effort into designing the bathroom stalls that I can trust my food is handled with care. When a bathroom feels more like a bad elementary school flashback I get nervous!

For the 5th year running Cintas Canada is sponsoring the competition for Canada's Best Restroom. Our Langley Street Loo was the winner in 2012, but last year we were ousted by the Valleyview Shell Super Station in Alberta.

yes those are solid alder wood doors, granite countertops & chandeliers...
in a gas station bathroom!

Now, I admit... this is no regular gas station pit stop, but I say it's time that we put Victoria's bathrooms back on the map! The competition, dubbed the "battle of the bowls," is voted online by the public and open to any non-residential restroom in Canada that is accessible to the general public.  Entries are judged on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements as well as their commitment to customer service.  In addition to national recognition, this year’s winner will receive the royal washroom treatment- a grand prize of $2,500 to be redeemed for Cintas facility services.

But really - this is all about bragging rights, Victoria! I know we have some amazing bathrooms to show off so get your nominations in!

Nominations are open from now until June 20, 2014. Get online and nominate a deserving Victoria area restaurant at!  

Five finalists will be announced this summer, at which time online voting will begin. The winner and runner-up will be revealed this fall during a nationally publicized media event and then be enshrined in Cintas’ Canada’s Best Restroom Contest Hall of Fame. In the meantime, you can keep up to date with all things Best Restroom related on their Facebook page.
