Hi Steve

There are tens if not hundreds of factors that determine whether a business will show in the local pack.
Location is the single biggest influence - and by location I mean location relative to the searcher.

So for Crystal River & Inverness, if Google finds other locksmith listings that are closer than Citrus Springs those are normally given higher priority.

Other things that can help:
Well optimised website and use of structured data
Mobile friendly website
Clean and strong backlink profile to website
Google reviews (not a direct ranking factor, but does appear to indirectly help)
Good citation profile
Complete GMB listing (incl photos, biz hrs, etc)

The top 3 also often result in higher organic placing as well.
