Iowa 80 Truckstop Top Ten Finalist in America's Best Restroom Contest


Iowa 80 Truckstop has received the honor of being nominated as having one of the best restrooms in the country and is the only truckstop to receive such designation. Cintas Corporation is sponsoring their 7th Annual best restroom contest.

Immaculate, inviting and, most of all, memorable; finalists in the America’s Best Restroom VII contest have established a new standard for restroom quality. These washrooms are testaments to their proprietors’ sense of taste, flare and humor, and feature some of the world’s finest materials and customer comforts as well as a few surprises.

The public is invited to vote online through July 31, 2008 at The site takes visitors on a photographic tour of each facility and then encourages them to choose their favorite. The winner will be announced in August 2008.

While the ten finalists are all quite unique, they have one thing in common: all are exceptionally clean. Cintas created the Best Restroom award in 2002 to honor those businesses across America that place high value on hygiene and exceptional style in their public restrooms. Over the last six years, the contest has attracted tens of thousands of voters. The 2008 winner will receive a plaque of recognition and a coveted place on America’s Best Restroom “Hall of Fame” section of the program’s Web site. Previous winners have included restrooms at Notre Dame University, The Grand Casino in Biloxi Mississippi, Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, the Fort Smith, Arkansas Airport, Wendell’s Restaurant in Westerville, Ohio and, in 2007, Jungle Jim’s International Market in Fairfield, Ohio.
