    This may sound like a strange question, but I am trying to find leads for the company I work for. I need to find large companies to market too. I have been basically scouring the internet (mostly data.com) for businesses with over 10 locations.

    I have been looking for some kind of directory of businesses that might include things like how many locations they own.

    I don't think I should share what industry I need this help for, but I can tell you it is nothing SEO/ORM related. Completely unrelated to computer stuff in general. However, I need to find US companies which have a lot of locations. For instance you might think "Taco bell", which yes I am looking for Tacobell, but I'm also looking for companies I don't know about. There are a lot of "management groups" out there, companies that might own 100 gas stations and 200 convenience stores.

    I need to find these companies and get in contact with them.

    Hit up biz buy sell and arrange by FRANCHISES :) in fact hit all the business sales sites and use this method. The reason I asked about the niche is because I have access to an incredible database updated monthly. I may be able to pull a few hundred records for you pending the search type.

    "Hit up biz buy sell and arrange by FRANCHISES"

    I don't think I understand this part here. What is biz? And there isn't really a specific niche, I just need any general business with many locations. Stores, gas stations, fast food, so on.
