CHICAGO -- August 9, 2013

Hoteliers interested in restoring their floors, updating staff uniforms, or
enhancing another asset to improve operations and guest satisfaction have less
than a month left to enter the $25,000 Hotel Makeover Contest from Cintas
Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS) and Anthony Melchiorri. From now until August 31,
hotels of all sizes can enter for a chance to win an onsite visit from
Melchiorri, a hospitality expert and television personality, and $25,000 worth
of products and services from Cintas.

“With the rise of social media and online review sites, a guest complaint that
goes viral can severely damage a hotel’s reputation in a few hours or even
minutes,” said Melchiorri. “Over the last decade, I have seen many hotels make
a significant improvement in their operations by focusing on the four keys to
guest satisfaction: image, cleanliness, safety and security.”

Nicknamed the “hotel fixer,” Melchiorri has more than 20 years of experience
serving the hospitality industry. In addition to winning a $25,000 hotel
makeover from Cintas, the winner will receive a personal visit from
Melchiorri, who will witness the changes and speak with the winner’s
leadership team and staff, and a trip to the International Hotel/Motel +
Restaurant Show, held in N.Y. in November 2013.

“We are passionate about supporting hotels as they raise the bar for their
guests and staff,” said Todd McKeown, Vice President, Global Hospitality and
Gaming, Cintas. “Alongside Anthony, we look forward to presenting the winner
with a $25,000 hotel makeover and demonstrating the impact it will have on
image, cleanliness, safety and security.”

The leader in specialized services to the hospitality industry, Cintas has
more than 40 years of history partnering with hotels to support
brand-building, efficient operations and enrichment of the guest experience.
Some of the company’s solutions for hotels include tile and carpet cleaning,
HVAC cleaning, uniform supply and rental, towel, mat and mop services, fire
protection services and first aid and safety supply and services. By taking
steps to elevate their image, improve cleanliness and increase guest safety
and security, hoteliers can secure a greater number of positive online and
offline reviews and increase customer loyalty.

To enter the contest, hoteliers are encouraged to fill out the submission form
and describe how they would use the $25,000 at www.cintas.com/anthonycontest.
A winner will be selected by September 6, and the makeover will be unveiled at
the 2013 International Hotel/Motel + Restaurant Show.
