LAFAYETTE, La. -- October 28, 2013

Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS) today announced that its uniform rental
facility in Lafayette, La. has received Voluntary Protection Program (VPP)
Star certification from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration
(OSHA). The VPP Star Certification is OSHA’s highest recognition for the
practice of and commitment to exemplary occupational safety and health.

The Cintas uniform rental facility in Lafayette is the 17th facility
companywide to receive Star designation. The facility’s 124 partners, along
with representatives from OSHA and state and community officials, celebrated
the honor with a flag raising ceremony held at the facility in Lafayette on
Oct. 28 at 10:00 a.m.

“Since opening our doors in 1999, our location has always maintained a good
safety performance record,” said Richard Guillory, Cintas General Manager of
Lafayette. “However, in order to take our safety performance and engagement to
the next level, we realized that we needed to pursue VPP certification. For
Cintas, safety is a top priority.”

Cintas’ Lafayette facility began the VPP process two years ago. The
designation required successful completion of a strict and rigorous audit and
collaboration between all levels of management and employee-partners in order
to create an environment of continuous safety improvement.

Cintas Corporation has more than 360 facilities throughout the world actively
pursuing VPP recognition by OSHA or the equivalent under a similar certifying
body. This includes operations in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico
and Honduras.
