Linda from the Google Maps team posted a thread at the Google Maps Help forum announcing a new feature in the Google Local Business Center that helps businesses see their own listings on Google Maps. Linda said:

Today, you'll see a Maps link for your every business listing in your Local Business Center account. We hope this new feature will help you easily find your business on Google Maps.

Here is a screen capture of that link:

See Your Google Maps Listings

For example, here is a direct link to my business listing:

maps.google.com/?hl=en&q=*&georestrict=input_srcid%3A2a3460b2291b0b2d&iwloc=A&iwd=1&mrt=yp

Personally, I love the query where they use an asterisk, *. Update, Barry Hunter decoded this URL over here.
