As a final precaution, take a moment to review your updated hours. Make sure all the information is correct and that you see the “Under Review” note in this section. This will let you know that you properly submitted your updated hours and that Google will review and publish them within 12-24 hours.

How to Add More Hours to Your Profile

Google wants to make sure that potential customers get all the information possible. If your business offers services like delivery, drive through, senior hours, and pickup during certain hours, you can update your profile to display that information too!

To do this, just click the Pencil “Edit” icon next to the More Hours section underneath the hours you just updated.

All you’ll need to do is click the Pencil “Edit” icon in the Holidays section underneath More Hours
