Yext Adds Support for New Google Pickup and Delivery Options

Restaurant brands can now take advantage of Google Place Actions to further customize their business listings.

Yext, Inc, the Answers Company, announced the addition of new functionality that will allow restaurant brands to manage pickup and delivery options on their Google Business Profiles.

Google Place Actions are featured prominently on knowledge panels and allow users to place orders through third-party services or a restaurant’s website. Profiles without these options display text that reads “may offer delivery” and “may offer pickup.” Adding Place Action links gives consumers greater assurance when ordering from a restaurant, and may also improve a location’s rank in organic search results.
