Beaverhill Shell

Every year, Cintas runs the “Canada’s Best Restroom contest”. 

As per their website “The Cintas Canada’s Best Restroom® Contest is a great way to promote your own business, or bring some recognition to one of your favourite establishments.”  

On September 24, the 2019 trophy went to Beaverhill Shell of Lac la Biche, Alberta! And it is lovely. The Hall of Fame entry says:
The washrooms at Beaverhill Shell were designed with the comforts of its customers in mind. Unlike conventional rest-stops, they feature luxurious details throughout. Clean lines like herringbone-patterned wall and floor tile, paired with sleek wall sconces, shining chandeliers and large, decorative mirrors create a modern, yet rustic look. Meanwhile, simple details like relaxing artwork and warm, wooden stall doors make the washrooms stand out. The Beaverhill Shell washrooms create a new rest stop experience and raise the standard of gas station bathrooms.
