CINCINNATI -- September 3, 2013

When you’ve gotta go, these top potties provide sweet relief, according to the
team of survey editors tasked with narrowing down the ten best restrooms
before the Internet public picks its favorite this fall.

Will America decide the nation’s top toilet is indeed “functional art”
inspired by an Italian masterpiece on show at a Swiss museum? Perhaps it’ll be
the “Pac Man” potty inside the Pacific Coast arcade that prides itself on
preserving the “golden age” of gaming? Or will one of New York City’s most
luxurious loos, a sprawling sophisticated space inside the iconic Waldorf
Astoria hotel, capture the crown to become America’s 2013 King of the Throne?
We will soon find out as this year’s top ten public potties compete for the
coveted title of Cintas’ America’s Best Restroom, the popular contest now
celebrating its 12^th year.

Voting begins now! The public is invited to show its support by casting a
ballot for their favorite restroom online at www.bestrestroom.com through
October 31 as these top 10 venues compete to secure the most votes in hopes of
being crowned Cintas’ America’s Best Restroom.

The contest’s site takes visitors on a photographic tour of each facility and
then encourages them to choose their favorite. The winner of the 12^th annual
Cintas’ America’s Best Restroom Contest will be revealed during a nationally
publicized media event later this fall, and both the winner and runner-up will
secure a place in the Hall of Fame.

“Cintas launched the America’s Best Restroom Contest 12 years ago to raise
awareness of the importance of hygiene and to salute those businesses which
strive for restroom excellence in both function and design,” said John Engel,
Cintas’ Senior Marketing Manager.

Cintas Corporation (CTAS) accepted nominations for any non-residential
restroom accessible to the general public online through the summer.
Qualifying facilities were then judged and finalists were selected based on
cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design
elements.

For more than 80 years, Cintas has serviced businesses nationwide and their
clientele, who recognize the correlation between clean restrooms and customer
satisfaction and retention. “It makes smart business sense to maintain the
facilities in a restaurant, hotel or other public place as it undoubtedly
influences a customer’s overall experience. Everyone can appreciate a clean,
well-maintained and innovatively-designed restroom,” Engel added.

Cintas Canada will announce its top finalists in the annual Canada’s Best
Restroom Contest in September. Visit www.bestrestroom.com/canada for more
