    This is strictly a google choice to show this, Typically you will only find it on sites that google has been indexing for along time, the site has been established a long time, the content is relevant, and there are multiple references on other sites to a physical location.

    They did at one time have a postcard verification process for business listings, but so many companies come and go, they normally won't list your info like this until you are a well established.

    What do I mean by multiple sources? Yellow page ad's, online news articles stating your address, basically a verification process from other sources that you can't contol.

    If your website does not have your full address and phone number, they won't list it... Period

    They still do have a verification process, except that it's both postcard and phone (your choice).
    It's called Google Places. You register on Google Places, they send you a postcard or give you a phone call with a five-digit PIN, and you claim your listing.

    It takes some time after that, but it does happen.

    Several clients have the listing without going through google places... But they have a brick and mortar business... At least 5 years old... But google places does work...
