How to get city name in Category Field?

Morning,

 

I have a competitor, Faulkner Buick GMC Trevose in Trevose PA that has their city listed in the category field of their Google Business listing (see screenshot). My client wants to know how to get their city on their Google business listing. Any advice on how to do this?

I'm not sure what you refer to as "city name in the category field.

 

 

Are you referring to the term "Trevose"  in the below screen  capture?

This line below the review summary is created algorithmically by Google and Trevose  is not part of tjhe category. 

Note the little dot between Car dealer andTrevose

Thanks for the quick reply. The area that you have highlighted with the Trevose is what I am referencing. I was thinking that it had to do with the algo. Is there any way I can influence this for my client to have their city appear? Maybe adding schema on website?

schema on website is always a good idea.
But since we don't get from Google any information about their algos I
can't help you regarding yor folllow up question.
