Here it is important the information is accurate, as this will be the information shown on the listing page on the site.

The ‘Featured Image’ is essential. Choose an image that reflects your business best, whether that’s an image of the storefront or a vegan dish on your menu.
In the ‘Listing Content’, add the business name and place in ‘Heading 2’ style. (i.e BBVegan in Chichester)
For aesthetics purposes we like to align all information in ‘Listing Content’ to centre, this is optional.
Underneath the heading, add a paragraph and describe your business.
