The answer is Google My Business

With a Google My Business profile, your business will appear whenever a user searches for a business like yours on Google Maps. Not only this, but your business profile will also appear on the main Google Search Page.

A Google My Business profile is easy to create and keep updated. The only thing you will need is an address for your business and a phone line.

Just go to https://www.google.com/business/ and click manage now

You will need to add your business name, street address, phone number and website. You will then be given two options to verify your business; by post or by phone call.

A phone call is the quickest way to verify, and once you have, your profile will be live on Google.
