Claiming Your Business
Google Maps is integrated with Google My Business. This allows users to automatically see businesses as well as attractions on Google Maps.

You just have to claim that listing to let Google know that this Business establishment belongs to you.
Once you have successfully claimed your business. The next thing you want to do is go to “info”. The panel “info” allows you to edit how visitors view your listing. From there, you can change the keywords visitors can use to find your website, operating hours, contact information, website, and your products and services. From there, you will want to click on services so you can add them.
