I want to give users the availability to provide a link to their business locations on their profile and if they have multiple locations it would show the visitor the nearest. (This is what I am trying to tackle with Google Maps, if possible.)

Can I share a link with Google Maps, that will request user for his location and show nearest franchise location of X company?

Example: User clicks link-> Location Request & Provided -> Show nearest X company location.

If not, is there a way to implement something similar, even if the map is integrated in the site?

BatchGeo is a good place to start. You'll need to look at their Spreadsheet Template to make sure that you're importing all the information you'll need. The Store Locator function is what you're looking for.


It sounds like this is along the lines of what you're looking for. You have to pre-add your store locations into a database, but essentially you can do it using php, MySQL and the Google Maps API to lets a user "enter their address and see markers on a map for the locations nearest to them".
