Whether it's in a five-star restaurant or at a rest stop, in a high-rise office or convenience store, Cintas Corp. is seeking nominations from the public for America's Best Restroom (ABR) through March 31.

Cintas created the ABR Award in 2002 to honor businesses that combine good hygiene with functionality and style in their public restrooms. The contest is open to any non-residential restroom that is free of charge and open to employees, visitors or the general public.

In June Cintas will announce the top ten finalists, and the public will vote online for the ABR Award winner, to be announced in August. The top five restrooms will secure a place in the 2009 ABR Hall of Fame. The 2008 winner was the Hermitage Hotel in Nashville, Tenn. (photo below).
