Four programs of Cintas win for fashionable, functional designs

For the 11th straight year, customers of Cintas Corporation received Image of the Year (IOY) awards during a banquet held by the North American Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors (NAUMD) in Las Vegas. Selected from a list of high-profile nominees, Cintas customers Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas, Panda Express, The Pierre Hotel, and Florida Hospital Cardiovascular Institute were honored based on the fashion, function and quality of their apparel programs.

“The IOY awards recognize the leaders in corporate image apparel,” said Richard Lerman, president and CEO of the NAUMD. “Each year, the judging panel is comprised of a number of industry experts who base their decision on the style, wearability and functionality of each design. They look at the goals of the program and the way each program evolves to meet those objectives.”

Winner in the single unit hotel category, The Pierre Hotel apparel program balanced the high-class nature of the establishment with the durability and comfort necessary for work. The Cintas winning designs combine traditional European styling with form and function to enhance the guest experience and celebrate the hotel's $100 million renovation.

“Cintas developed a luxury collection that echoes our brand and the environment in which our employees serve,” said Heiko Kuenstle, general manager of The Pierre Hotel. “We want to set the standard for outstanding hospitality, and an award-winning uniform program further sets us apart from the competition.“

In the healthcare category, Cintas developed an apparel program for five different departments within the Florida Hospital Cardiovascular Institute. To complement the corporate color palette, the scrubs incorporate a complete custom color program centered around the color cinnamon. In addition, Cintas designed a patterned trim with a custom heart-shaped design with the Florida Hospital logo to honor the focus of the renowned organization.

“This prestigious award truly reflects the integrity of our apparel program,” said Danielle Johnson, assistant vice president of Florida Hospital Cardiovascular Institute. “This facility is committed to quality care, so we wanted a uniform program that reflects our brand while enhancing the job functions of each employee. By working with key stakeholders throughout the process, Cintas helped us develop a program that met everyone's needs.”

For Panda Express, it's important to showcase a top-of-the-line apparel program for the back of the house staff because the fast food restaurant operates with an exposed kitchen. The Asian-inspired uniforms include black complementary chef and cook tunics, each with red accents and the iconic Panda Express logo on the right arm and back. The chef version is differentiated by a Chinese character trim. A traditional skull cap has been updated and rethought to include mesh panels and adjustable straps. Both uniforms are paired with four-way reversible aprons.
