Colan Nielsen reported that Google is now testing showing service “justifications,” which according to him Google defines as the additional labels in the local pack result. Before we saw web site mentions here, as well as other items, but now Google is testing showing “services.”

I think it makes sense. Showing the service “justification” for instance, is Google’s way of justifying why they are returning a particular result. Same with reviews, Google Posts and website mentions.
