Toast Local was started by two individuals who each have over 20 years experience in digital marketing. Toast Local was started in 2013 when local searches started becoming more and more important for business owners. One year after Toast Local started, Google My Business was launched Google (June 2014).
Over the years, as mastering Google My Business has become more essential for local business owners than websites, Toast Local has poured more and more resources into mastering GMB to get great results for our clients. The end result is a staff of passionate local search experts who are ready to knock it out of the park for you! You can read more about our team below:
