"Toilet is the key of hospitality."

The Best Toilet Award of the Bay honors the best toilet spaces in the Bay Area.

The best toilet spaces that the Bay (Bay Area, California) has to offer take more than an award to appreciate. After all, every toilet space seems to have its own story and background, whether it's a restroom behind a bistro or a washroom by the hotel lobby. We care about the feelings when stepping into a toilet space. The Best Toilet Award of the Bay aims at promoting the importance of toilet spaces of the food and hospitality industry in the Bay Area, and together we hope to raise public awareness on hygiene and to appreciate the hospitality community who has worked on toilet spaces.

100% of the funds generated from this Award will be utilized to further develop education in the culinary and hospitality industry, specifically towards Open Restaurant Help Lives to create educational restaurants that hire retirees and students to serve the community.
