WAN and Internet connection help

Sorry, this may be a stupid question, but I'm by no means an network expert.  My company has elected me to set this up.

We are changing to a different network provider.  This network provider is connecting all of our sites with MPLS.  At the corporate office we have an Internet connection from a different company.  I've tinkered around with some settings and have not been able to connect to the internet and connect to the remote locations at the same time.  If I set my local machine's gateway to the router for the remote locations, I can reach them but no internet.  If I set my local machine's gateway to the firewall on the Internet connection, I can reach the Internet but no remote locations.

I'm sure there's an easy way to do this.  I would hate to have to set up routes on all of the workstation PC's to get them to work properly.

I have included a basic Visio diagram.
