How to suggest new categories?

I have several clients in a niche industry. There is a category for half of their services, but not the other half. Many of them are now transitioning to the side of the business for which there is no suitable category. Is there a place to suggest new categories so they may gain better visibility for their niche? And PS these are businesses within the pet industry.

afaik there  is no good place to request new categories.

(though - perhaps you can use the feedback option of GMB)

@Amy M

two steps are necessary while in your GMB dashboard

Step 1  leftside (Hamburger) Main-Menue-> "Support"

Thank you very much! I tried that but didn't hear much. I'm hoping they heard but haven't implemented the additions yet. Thanks for responding!
