Ranking penalty in Google My Business for no physical address?

we have verified our My Business Page -- entered all of the information requested by Google including our local home address -- check box for "deliver services to customer locations" and unchecked "also ... at my address" and checked "hide address." 

 

is there a ranking penalty for our business compared to competitors who operate out of a physical address?

Hi @Rob B, there are no ranking penalties for hiding your address. 

 

Are you experiencing something that led you to inquire about it?
