ABERDARE MCDONALD’S TRIUMPHS AT LOO OF THE YEAR AWARDS
Local restaurant commended for high quality washroom facilities at prestigious awards
McDonald’s Aberdare restaurant on Depot Road has been awarded a top prize at the annual independent Loo of the Year awards – dubbed the ‘Toilet Oscars’ – which recognises and rewards the best washrooms across the UK.
The restaurant’s Business Manager Nathan Jackson and his crew bagged the Gold award for the quality of the Aberdare restaurant’s toilet facilities, which 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: staff, customers, visitors, managers, owners or contractors. Following 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.
Nathan Jackson commented: “Staff at the Aberdare restaurant 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.”
