“We have an army of people at our corporate headquarters who are invested in our franchisees’ success – we care very deeply for each of our studio owners and how well they perform,” says Beth Butler, Director of Franchise Sales. “We work hard behind the scenes, trying to make running a business easier, simpler, and ideally, something that’s fun for our franchise owners. We hope our efforts allow them the time, the freedom, and the ability to share the products they love and conveying to their customers what would help them look and feel better.”
Franchise models like Merle Norman Studio Cosmetics are fortifying the national economy
The International Franchise Association creates an annual report detailing the most current industry statistics and detailed an economic output of $1.6 trillion, which previously accounted for 5.8 percent of the U.S. GDP. The total combinations of creating American jobs, annual payroll, and the annual output of the franchise industry have recently added up to 7.4 percent of the GDP. And as of 2019, 13.3 million jobs were supported by franchise production and helped reduce national unemployment rates.
The recession-fighting growth of Merle Norman franchises is a personal mission for our brand, dating back to our first studio opening in 1931 amongst the distress of the Great Depression in Santa Monica, California.
