If your Page has any age or country restrictions, only people who are logged into Facebook and meet your restrictions will be able to view your Page. To make your Page visible to everyone, remove age and country restrictions.
Only Pages with valid locations can use Facebook Wi-Fi, so you'll need to create a different Page for each location of your business.
If your business is setting up or already using Facebook Wi-Fi, Facebook can help you create these Pages. Find out if your business qualifies.
