Introducing VOB’s New "Serviceable Areas" Feature
Veteran Owned Business has recently added a new business profile feature that will now allow members with a business listing to add customized geographic areas based on where each business provides products and/or services. This added feature will allow site users/visitors to search for and potentially find businesses in additional areas outside of where their business is physically located….scroll down below to find out how you can add/edit this new feature to your profile!

For members who have active business profiles and would like to add/edit service areas you will need to access myVOB (where you can edit several additional areas as well). Look for “Areas Serviced”. Enter each geographic area you service individually (clicking the “Add New Area” button each time. Then hit the “Update” button to submit this change. *Please note: each and every edit submission will be reviewed prior to being made live.
