  2. Sign in to your Google Account, or create one. Then, click Next.
    • Sign up with your business email domain since this account will be for your chain. Enter the name of your business or chain. You can also select your chain from the suggestions that appear as you type (if applicable).
  3. Enter your business’ or chain’s address. You may also be asked to position a marker on the location of your chain’s branch on a map. If your business doesn’t have a physical location but works in a service area, you can list the area instead. Then, click Next
  4. Choose if you want your business location to appear on Google Maps.
    • If you serve customers at your business address:
      1. Enter your business address.
      2. Click Next.
        Tip: If you also serve customers outside your business address, you'll have the option to list your service areas as well.

  7. Select a verification option.
    • To verify later, click Verify later and then Later. If you’re not authorized to manage the Business Profile for the chain, find the person in your organization who’s authorized and continue the process.
