Local brew-pub has the right looking loo

Cintas Canada’s Best Restroom Contest named local brewhouse and eatery a finalist in a nationwide a bathroom contest.

Kelowna’s BNA  Brewing Company and Eatery’s loo has the right look.

Or so say the judges of the Cintas Canada’s Best Restroom Contest, who named the local brewhouse and eatery a finalist in a nationwide a bathroom contest.

Finalists are determined based on five criteria, including cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements. The winner is chosen through online voting and gets $2,500.

“The washroom at this brewery and restaurant transports visitors back in time. Located inside a historic building that was once home to The British North American Tobacco Company, the washroom maintains its heritage but has a modern, classy, and unforgettable look,” reads the description on the voting page.

In addition to being a time machine, the brew-pub is also the only B.C. entrant. Two are from Calgary, another is from Edmonton and one more is from Lansdowne, Ont.

In a press release, Cintas said it holds the annual contest to recognize businesses that understand that there is a direct correlation between how a public restroom is cleaned, maintained and well-stocked and the impact this has on customer service and repeat business.

“We received a wide variety of nominations this year, making our decision difficult.” said Leslie Molin, Cintas Canada’s Senior Marketing Manager.

“It is exciting to see more and more businesses getting behind the message we strive to convey.” The Cintas survey editors have reviewed the nominations, and narrowed it down to the Final Five. Now it’s time for the public to decide which will be crowned “Canada’s Best Restroom.”

The public is invited to cast an online ballot for their favourite washroom at www.bestrestroom.com/canada through October 9th as the five finalists compete to secure the most votes and take the throne.
