McDonald’s in Gainsborough has been awarded top prizes at the Loo of the Year awards, dubbed the ‘Toilet Oscars’, which recognises and rewards the best washrooms across the UK.
Franchisee Bob Meadowcroft and crew bagged the Gold Award for the quality of the toilet facilities at the restaurant in Trinity Street.
The awards were judged on a wide range of criteria including cleanliness and hygiene, fixtures and fittings, air quality and décor.
Since its introduction in 1987, and promoted by the British Toilet Association, the awards aim to promote the highest standards in public lavatories focusing the spotlight on ‘away from home’ toilets throughout the UK.
Loo of the Year contenders, with the owner’s or manager’s permission, can be nominated by anyone. Following a nomination, the entries are critiqued and receive a grading ranging from Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum following an unannounced visit from an independent Loo of the Year Awards inspector.
Bob Meadowcroft said: “My staff work exceptionally hard to ensure our customers enjoy a high quality service throughout their visit, and this includes having access to hygienic and safe washroom facilities.
“Our toilets are maintained to a very high standard for all our customers to enjoy, so it’s a great to be recognised for our ongoing hard work with this prestigious award.”
