Hi guys,

Imagine I'm running the business(let business name be "XYZ") with multiple branch,

Head office is located at A location ,
I have branch office for my Business "XYZ" all over the country at Location B,C,D,E etc.,

Now I would like to know, how to list my business at Google Local business listing.

Here is the details,

I have different physical address for all of these branches,
I have different phone numbers for all the branches,
Business name is same for all the branch.
Head/owner of the business is same person.
I using same website for all the branches.


How to set up local business listing for this business. Looking forward for your valuable input!

Thanks in advance!

Looking at how most companies do it for example Wachovia has every one of their listings with the same name, "Wachovia Bank" and they do not designate or tag the end of each listing with oh lets say the city name the business is located in, which of course is another option(or initials atl, srq, etc).

IMO you should list all the addresses as you have separate physical office in all the location. Just make sure to use the same business name in all the listing. The difference can be in operating time (if any), and definitely the service area.

The bank I am consulting to has over 700 ATMs and hundreds of branch Place Pages, as do all the other big banks. All show the same phone number and URL but each has a local physical address. You have a good chance of getting multiple listings.
