I own a service business in san diego. We are looking to open two more offices in SD.

i am hesitant to add new locations to our business local account because i do not want google to give us issues and lower our ranking .
 
I understand that google "likes it " when information is the same all around the board and yes i'm aware their are other companies with franchises that have multiple locations,but im not sure how they do it.  Any advice?
 
Answer: Google allows a business to have a G+ Local page for each physical location of their business. You do have to be careful though when it comes to setting up multiple service area businesses. As long as the business is open during the stated business hours and follows the Google My Business guidelines you should be fine.
