Popular mobile app company GasBuddy helps customers find the cheapest gas relative to their location. It also allows users (called GasBuddies) to review gas stations and their bathrooms in the free GasBuddy app.
With over 150,000 gas stations in their database, GasBuddy notes that millions of users use their platform to find cheap gas and submit reviews. Their report noted a surprising trend: there is apparently some competition now to improve gas station bathroom quality.
The report quotes Frank Beard, a convenience store and retail trends analyst at GasBuddy as saying:
“The reputation of gas station restrooms has cleaned up significantly in the past three years, with brands making concentrated efforts to make their facilities sparkle. In fact, companies like Maverik and Sinclair respectively doubled and tripled their share of states with the top-rated restrooms in the span of a year, further proving the competition is overflowing at gas station restrooms nationwide.”
And road trippers across the nation rejoice.
It’s nice to see the cleanliness of bathrooms improving, although I have to admit…observationally (and anecdotally, not scientifically) I’ve not seen this improvement. I think my 7 year old daughter (not pictured below) would agree. 🙂
