Yelp Says Support For Black-Owned Businesses Has Skyrocketed In The Last Few Months

In the wake of Black Lives Matter protests and community dialogue over the last few months, Black-owned businesses have seen the benefit.

Yelp says searches for Black-owned businesses have risen by 7,000 percent over the same two month time period last year.

Yelp’s vice president of data science Justin Norman told Business Insider that he has never seen such a large spike due to a social movement.

Yelp expects the sudden rise in interest for Black-owned businesses will continue.
