A few Canadian flags blowing in the wind

Cintas Canada, Ltd. crowned Westview RV Park in Wetaskiwin, Alberta the 2020 Canada’s Best Restroom winner, the company announced in a statement. The public voted the Westview RV Park the best public washroom in the country, earning it the top prize of a Cintas UltraClean restroom cleaning service and $2,500 in Cintas facility services. The washrooms will also be honored with a place in the Canada’s Best Restroom Hall of Fame.

 “We’re blown away by the outpouring of votes to help us earn the title of Canada’s Best Restroom,” said Carol Crick, co-owner and operator, Westview RV Park. “We invested a lot of time into creating clean and comfortable washrooms for our customers. Our luxurious facilities are one of the main reasons travelers choose to stay at our campground.”

 The washrooms at the Westview RV Park recently underwent a major makeover. Westview wanted to give its customers the five-star treatment and make them feel comfortable while staying at the park. The epoxy floors are textured for less slips and rounded corners were created for ease of cleaning. Meanwhile, concrete countertops and fancy tile make these the great campground washrooms.

“Travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic have many Canadians renting or buying an RV for their family getaways,” says Sonia Mendes, senior marketing manager, Cintas Canada. “When travelers visit the Westview campground, they’ll be impressed by the clean and pleasant washroom experience.”

The Westview RV Park’s engagement throughout the contest played a significant role in driving votes for their location. They drove awareness via their social media page as well as participated in several radio, TV and newspaper interviews. Their promotion resulted in thousands of proud employees and caring customers voting for them throughout the contest.

Now in its 11th year, the Cintas Canada’s Best Restroom contest shines a spotlight on businesses that go the extra mile to create the most memorable restrooms imaginable. The contest is open to any non-residential restroom in Canada that is accessible to the public.
