Small Business Owners Capitalize On Legendary Name Recognition
90+ years of quality products, successful small business owners and satisfied customers
Opening a small business can be hard, especially if you’re competing in the lucrative, and busy, beauty sector. Want to stand out from the crowd? Open a Merle Norman cosmetics franchise and gain immediate name recognition thanks to almost a century’s worth of successful operations. Quite simply, our product quality, integrity and legacy are unparalleled.
Merle Norman, the company’s founder and the franchises themselves, are an American success story. Mrs. Norman was ahead of her time — a pioneer in cosmetics and franchising who believed in creating authentic products that work. She also empowered women through business ownership, and today we are thriving with her original passion, vision, and tenacity.
Promotion, marketing support stands out
Merle Norman beauty franchises succeed thanks to that reputation, as well as decades’ worth of perfecting our business model. One differentiator? Promotions and marketing.
Mrs. Norman knew the value of “try before you buy,” so we’ll provide your studio with sample and demonstration products. You’ll also tap into:
- a generous advertising program that pays 60% of your media costs and postage on approved advertising programs
- free, professionally produced creative materials ranging from email templates to brochures and mailers, newsletters, and social media images and content
- free inclusion in national advertising campaigns in major magazines such as InStyle, Glamour, Allure and Southern Living
- your own website!
Back-office systems make onboarding easy
We’ve also worked hard to create a business that’s fun to operate. No one wants to sit in the back doing paperwork — entrepreneurs love to meet the customers their business is bringing through the doors. That’s why every Merle Norman beauty franchise owner has an administration that covers everything from point-of-sale to inventory control.
The system supports you with:
- Employee scheduling
- Mailing (physical and email) for birthdays, promotions and other events
- Calendaring customer appointments
- Inventory, sales and other reports
- Customer history
- And much more!
For almost a century, Merle Norman has been creating beauty with high-quality, affordable skin care products and services. At the same time, it has allowed thousands of franchise owners to build successful businesses. Why not make now the time to open a Merle Norman franchise, or add our exciting line of products to your existing retail business?
