When I google my business a competitor pops up as first post and says "want better service? Call us".  Any remedy?

Without seeing a screen shot or a search that generates for me, I would guess that its an Adwords Ad that is being shown on your trade name. You can take out an add on your own trade name.

I was able to replicate it and it is an AdWords ad as Mike mentioned. You do have the ability to file a trademark complaint. View this thread in the AdWords forum for more info.

Yes because they use your name in the ad you can file to have it removed. If they didn't use your name then there would be little recourse.
