Google is now allowing all businesses (not just restaurants) to list their services/menu in their Google My Business profile.

The Services/Menu section,  is no longer a feature limited to only restaurants, but now most businesses that offer services can write descriptions of them and include a price. This means beauty salons, hotels and more can use this feature. However not all business are eligible. For example, auto dealers, clothing stores, and educational supplies stores are not able to add services. Eligible business owners can add as many items as needed. The purpose of this feature allows potential customers to immediately get information without even going to the business website.

Guidelines For Google My Business Services

There are a couple guidelines that both restaurants/bars menus and service menus must follow:

  • The services and items listed should be what items are available for customers.
  • Menus can be meal-specific (breakfast, lunch, or dinner) if they are a full menu.
  • Menus can include links to other menu pages.
  • Sample menus with only “popular items” is not allowed.
  • Links in the menu can’t be to third-party ordering or delivery services.
  • Consent of business owners to submit a menu URL for a business is needed if a third party manages the google page
