Business from other side of town shows up first in my suburb

Hi, I'm not sure of the best place to post this.

I'm relatively new to the online side of things, but I've followed all of the rules to add my business/location to google maps. However, when I type in my industry (martial arts) plus my town, another business from a completely different area shows up first. 

Does this mean they are advertising in my town or something, or is their SEO/advertising just better?

Thanks for any insight you can give!

Hi Emily

Can you provide some more information please including the name of your business and its address? A screenshot of what you see when you do your search would also be very helpful.

Thank you.
