Celebrating Black and Latinx Owned Businesses

Earlier this year during Black History Month, we launched the “Black-owned business” window cling. We mailed window clings to every one of the 5,000+ businesses that opted into being featured in one of these collections. 

Following the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery in June 2020, Yelp launched a free searchable attribute that gives businesses the opportunity to identify as Black-owned, making it easy for consumers to seek out and support Black-owned businesses. Simultaneously, our Community team rallied to create over 80 collections of Black-owned businesses nationwide. (Both the attribute and the collections are opt-in only, as the decision to self-identify as Black-owned should rest solely with the business.)

Fast forward a few months, and we celebrated Latinx Heritage Month in September. Our Community team once again compiled collections – this time featuring Latinx-owned businesses. We sent everyone on this list a “Latinx-owned business” window cling.

If you’re a Black-owned or Latinx-owned business and interested in adding the free attribute to your Yelp page and appearing in search results, you can opt-in on your Yelp for Business account by following these simple steps. By doing so, you’ll automatically receive one of our free window clings.  

Thank you for being part of the community and for everything you do.
