The Open to All campaign launched in 2018 to encourage awareness and understanding of the importance of nondiscrimination laws. It’s meant to defend the bedrock principle that when businesses open their doors to the public, they should be open to all.
The Open to All attribute allows your business to distinguish itself as a safe and welcoming place to everyone—regardless of ethnicity, race, sex, national origin, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
When a consumer visits your Yelp Business Page, they’ll be able to see if your business is “Open to All.” It will be highlighted under the Amenities section.
Update (Oct. 8, 2020): There is also a new Open to All toolkit for businesses available—especially helpful for smaller businesses that are looking for a way to start the conversation about diversity and inclusivity.
To add or edit the attribute on your Yelp Business Page:
Yelp for Business site on desktop or mobile browser
- Visit Yelp for Business (Business Information tab).
- Click Edit next to Known for.
- Select Yes beside Open to All.
- Click Save Changes.
If you choose “Yes” then Yelp users will see that your business is Open to All. If you choose “No,” then your page will indicate that you’re not Open to All under the Amenities section. If you don’t select “Yes” or “No”, the attribute won’t appear on your page at all.
