Propane Delivery Services with a Proven Business!
Why A 1st Propane Franchise? 

$10 billion Per Year Industry Permanent Customer Base - The laws in most states prohibit the filling of your tanks by your competitors.

  • 1st Propane Franchise
    An Established Product:
    Not a Fad! Propane has been in use for more than 75 years.
  • No Minimum Wage Employees: All employees are semi-skilled, professional employees. This makes management of your franchise easier.
  • No Storefront Office: Makes your management of the business more flexible.

Our System

As a 1st Propane franchisee you will contract to provide the energy needs of rural homeowners and many types of businesses and farms.

You will provide a tank that is 100 to 1000 gallons in size, and periodically refill the tank on-site.  Propane gas is considered the world’s most convenient and versatile fuel - it is clean, efficient, economical and less expensive than electricity. 

Commercial energy users such as hotels, restaurants and retail stores, use propane for many of the same purposes as residential customers. Propane is also used as an engine fuel for powering over-the-road vehicles, forklift trucks and stationary engines in co-generation systems and standby generators.


Our Future

1st Propane Franchise for Sale
In the near future propane will be used to power an emerging technology device called fuel cells. Fuel cells are environmentally friendly, highly efficient devices that will use propane gas to generate electricity and heat water in residential homes and commercial businesses. Automobiles, buses and trucks of the future will also be powered by fuel cells designed to operate on environmentally friendly fuels such as propane.


The 1st Propane franchise system brings a high level of sophistication to the propane industry:

  • Initial Training Program and Ongoing Support: You will receive extensive training on the 1st Propane way of doing business through a month-long training program. Ongoing training and support is provided.
  • State-of-the-art Equipment: You will be using state-of-the-art equipment with specific applications developed exclusively for 1st Propane. This high tech equipment includes computerized route scheduling and wireless tank monitoring for more efficient deliveries and a hand held computer to automate the delivery and customer billing process.
  • Proprietary Software Package: You will have the use of PLATO, a proprietary software system developed specifically for your use in managing your 1st Propane dealership. This sophisticated management tool is only available to 1st Propane franchise owners.
  • Centralized Accounting: To ease your paperwork burden and costly staff requirements, your business accounting is performed for you by 1st Propane. As a management tool it is unsurpassed in value in that it monitors all of the financial aspects of your business.
  • Employee Certification: You and your employees will receive professional training and certification in the propane industry’s nationally recognized Certified Employee Training Program. Our training satisfies National LP-Gas Code requirements for qualified individuals by combining hands-on activities with written and verified evaluations.
  • Exclusive Territory: Included with the award of your franchise is a protected territory in which we will not award another 1st Propane franchise. You will have the exclusive rights to this area during the term of your franchise agreement and any renewals thereafter.

The future for propane is bright.

For qualified individuals, 1st Propane offers a sophisticated and professional system of providing the energy that is a necessity for many Americans.
