Hi Geeth

Would you be able to provide a screenshot of what you mean? I assume this is something you've seen other businesses achieve on Maps?

It can be difficult to upload images to this forum so I recommend uploading the screenshot to a 3rd party site like Google Photos and then providing a link here.

HI Geeth

Ahh, those are place labels. Unfortunately there is no way to get those assigned - they are determined by an algorithm. There's more information on them here: https://support.google.com/business/answer/6056435?hl=en
