Merle Norman, the iconic beauty supply franchise, landed at #451 on Entrepreneur’s 42nd annual Franchise 500® ranking for 2021.
Widely regarded as the most prestigious ranking in the franchise industry, Entrepreneur measures franchise systems on the basis of costs & fees, size & growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength & stability.
Merle Norman more than measures up. After a strong recovery due to the effectiveness of the brand’s new e-commerce platform, Merle Norman continues to experience strong sales increases as well as continued growth in franchise development. In 2021, Merle Norman celebrates our 90th year anniversary, and with millions of fans and a recession-resistant business model, Merle Norman is stronger than ever.
Beginning her empire in her own kitchen in the 1920s, Merle Norman opened her first studio in 1931 amid the Great Depression. During a time when women were not business owners, she launched her own company and started the first franchise – long before the concept was officially defined.

Our brand is committed to helping women feel beautiful in both business and life, and with low startup costs, exceptional support, and a long track record of helping entrepreneurs thrive in business, Merle Norman is ready to help you live a meaningful life in business.
