September 16, 2010
ST. LOUIS, MO — The Fountain on Locust in midtown won this year''s America''s Best Restroom contest sponsored by Cintas Corporation, according to the Post-Dispatch.
Online voters catapulted Joy Grdnic Christensen''s retro diner ahead of facilities in bigger-name locations such as Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas and Bryant Park in New York, the article noted.
"It just shows that a little, no-budget, recycled bathroom can beat out places with teams of contractors and architects," said Grdnic Christensen.
The paint and fixtures in the Fountain''s spotless, black-tiled, mirrored restrooms came from a Habitat for Humanity ReStore outlet, the article stated.
