Joost de Valk AKA Yoast, discovered that the list of Schema LocalBusiness types has been greatly expanded. I looked at it not that long ago and all these categories & sub-cats were not there.

That's great news. Now if the powers-that-be can only figure out a way for the "little guy" to adopt Schema widely (without having to hire one of us local-search-obsessives)...

Thanks for passing that along, Linda!
