It is important to note, that while anyone can apply to become a Proliant Settlement Systems franchise owner, we do seek specific qualities in our partners. It is essential our candidates share the same dedication, focus and integrity we believe in. Successful partners have a strong entrepreneurial resolve, and the drive to build and maintain a solid book of business.

The franchise fee is $15,000.00.
Are There Other Financial Requirements To Be Considered?
Franchisees must be in a position to capitalize the franchise investment, including working capital and any personal living expenses during the startup period and early months of Agency operation.

How Much Can I Expect To Earn As A Franchisee?

To learn more about the financial aspects of franchising with Proliant Settlement Systems, we provide you our Franchise Disclosure Document with certain financial disclosures when you are further along in the evaluation process.
What Territories Are Available?
