Do I have to enter a phone number for Google My Business to show?

I have verified my Google My Business account for Selkie Crafts. I have entered most of the details but I do not want to include my phone number as I work from home and so not want my private number made public. Business contact is made through email.


However when I search with Google for my business the Google My Business info does not show on the right of the search results at all. Does it require a phone number before it will make my Google My Business info live and how can I get around this?

I do not want to make the private home number visible.

4. Google+ or GoogleMyBusiness URL
