How to appear under a serach keyword for Google Business acount

I see that some of my competitors come up as the main google business "ad" for specific keywords, whereas our company never appears as a top (large spot) for any keywords. Is there a way to have our company's google business "ad" come up as the top for some keywords?

Here's a link of what I mean:

Vs. what it usually looks like:

 Hello Tania, these are not "ads" these are listings.  In order to rank, to improve visibility in search results, you will need to research and execute on search engine optimization both on-site and off-site.  Send me a link to your website and I can give you a few tips for on-site adjustments.  For off-site you will want to make sure you are listed accurately across citation sources including Yelp, YP, and others - you will find this information as you research the topic of SEO.
