Business contained within another Business

Google Guidelines once stated the following:

Some businesses may be located within a mall or a container store, which is a store that contains another business. If your business is within a container store or mall, and you'd like to include this information in your listing, specify the container store in parentheses in the business name field. For example, Starbucks (inside Safeway).


Is there any intention of exposing that concept in the API?

Hi @David R,


When submitting your business information in Google My Business either via the UI or the API, you should adhere to the Guidelines for representing your business on Google, specifically when providing the business name. If your business is located within a mall or a container store (for example, a Starbucks inside a Safeway grocery store), do not include this information in the title. Only include the name of the core business in the location name (e.g. "Starbucks").
