Pfr routing

We'd like to incorporate a internet circuit to our existing branch routers (891) and take advantage of pfrv3.  Right now we are strictly gathering all the necessary information.  Currently all of our remote sites connect to our provider's MPLS circuit and they all terminate at our data center on the provider's router.  We have no administrative access to the provider's equipment. We are going to use an ASR as our hub /MC on the INET circuit at the DC but since we have no access to the MPLS router there is no way we can have a  HUB router for the MPLS circuit or can we?

I am not sure if pfr with one ASR is going to make any difference, as you only have a single point of exit and that is the provider's router.

Like Reza, what you're hoping to accomplish with PfR is unclear.

PfR, given a choice of paths, normally egress, can work its "magic", but as Reza also noted, the key for PfR is provided it more than one path.

Although you mention adding an Internet circuit to your existing branches, were you thinking of using PfR to manage it and your private MPLS circuit?  If so, PfR would want to see the same destination reachable via both.
