    Businesses don't enjoy the same privacy individuals do. There's a free secretary of state search to see if it shows them being active or not. They may be under a dba, so you may have to look up other names they may be operating in. You can search court records to see if anything has been filed against them. Don't forget to search under the owners' names also just in case.
