What are "Service Areas"?

Service Areas show the range where a mobile business will provide service. Whether or not a business page is eligible to have a Service Area depends on its categories. If your business qualifies, this feature will be accessible in your Business Account. Businesses with Service Areas will also have the option to hide their business address from the public if it can’t be visited by customers.

Instructions for:


To add or edit a Service Area from Yelp for Business website (biz.yelp.com)

  3. Scroll down to the Service Area section and click Yes underneath "Do you service your customers at their location"?
  4. Enter the cities your business serves
  5. Scroll down and click Save Changes

To add or edit a Service Area from Yelp for Business app

We allow you to enter up to 6 major cities that your business serves. Any cities between the locations you specify will be included in your Service Area automatically. Service Areas are limited to a 50-mile radius or a 100-mile diameter between the two furthest points. If your actual service area is larger than 100 miles in diameter, we recommend you upload a photo reflecting a larger service area or list that information in the Specialities section of your From This Business.
