2018 Breaks Last Year’s Record for Merle Norman Franchises Opened
Merle Norman Cosmetics will far exceed its original goal for franchise openings in 2018
More than halfway into 2018 and Merle Norman Cosmetics franchise has a lot to celebrate. Our studio franchise opening numbers already have surpassed our total openings for 2017! Launched earlier this year, our new franchise recruitment effort is producing fantastic results as we continue to work toward our goals of growing our network with hundreds of new franchises within the next decade.
“We’re so pleased with the growth we’ve seen thus far in 2018,” says Travis Richards, Vice President of Franchising. “We started the year with focus and energy around franchise recruitment. We launched a new franchise website and other strategies aimed at reaching interested entrepreneurs with the franchise opportunity. Our hard work has paid off! Our initial goal was to open 42 franchises this year. We’ve already opened — or have approved to open — a total of 40, and we’re only six months into the year. It’s going to be exciting to see how many more franchises we can open before December 31.”
For the entire year of 2017, we opened 18 new studios and 12 resale studios. As of June 30, we have opened 18 new studios and 13 resale studios. We also have six new studios and three resale studios approved to open.
