We are a Mobile Dog Grooming company that has franchises across Australia. There are many inactive Google plus franchise pages under our name. How do we get old pages deleted and gain access to the current pages? Some of the franchisees has left the company but their page is still there and we have a new franchisees that has taken over. Please let me know how we tackle this/ If we can’t gain access to these, we’d like them to be deleted.

pages or locations you have no access to you should report as "closed" if there location isn't anymore existent.

Removing isn't possible.

 
locations being still "running" should either claimed by you (incase they are unverified) or in case they are claimed and you like to get control over it you should apply this procedure:

Thanks for clearing that up. I'm assuming this is a page. Could you please tell me how to remove it using "Someone else verified my business" option

You seem confusing things:

The procedure "Someone else verified my business " isn't a procedure to remove a listing - especially not a verified local listing as "Blue Wheelers"  is definitely one.

 

The procedure "Someone else verified my business " is the procedure to get control over a certain listing to manage it in oyur dashboard instead of in "someone else's" dashboard.

Removinf a verified listing from Google and GoogelMaps ist't possible at all.

You can mark it as closed only.
