Thanks for your question. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
It will depend on how you want to do this.
One option is the paid method, where basically you advertise and pay for this then you are listed as a sponsored link. The challenge here is that you still compete with other companies and the listing is all based on who is paying more, as well as relevance to the search. This is referred to as Googles Adwords and you can see this as a sort of auction to be listed.
A complete overview you can see here.

The second method is without paying and to appear organically in the search results. Its a lot harder and never guaranteed, but if you maintain your website against a basic set of guidelines, it will the provide you the best chance.
A very good overview of what to do with your website to provide the bet chance of appearing as high as possible can be viewed here and if you do apply this you stand a good chance of being listed high

Also ensure that your business is listed within Google Businesses (so it appears in Google Maps) which you can do (free of charge) here
