Merle Norman Makes Entrepreneur ‘Top 100 Franchises For Under $100K’ List
Low cost of entry and huge potential makes beauty franchise one to watch, according to internationally respected and widely watched franchise-brand evaluator
Owning a Merle Norman cosmetics franchise is a best-bet opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to stake their claim in the multibillion-dollar, and growing, beauty space. And don’t just take our word for it – Entrepreneur magazine thinks so, too.
In its 2019 Top 100 Franchises For Under $100,000 list, the respected brand assessor singled out Merle Norman for inclusion. This list is derived from Entrepreneur’s 2019 Franchise 500, so it’s a double dose of affirmation for Merle Norman, says Travis Richards, Vice President of Franchising.
Low entry point speeds path to profitability
This particular list’s goal is to call attention to quality brands with a reasonable starting investment. A Merle Norman beauty franchise certainly fits the bill, given how quickly a franchise owner can bring in business and begin earning income, Richards notes.
“We’re really thrilled to get this recognition from Entrepreneur, because it supports what we always tell potential new franchise owners,” he says. “The beauty industry is very competitive, but Merle Norman is a legendary name backed by the business systems and support that allow franchisees to position themselves very well in their markets.”
Multiple pathways to entry
Another plus for entrepreneurs looking at the Merle Norman cosmetics franchise opportunity is the many ways one can become an owner. Some launch an entirely new franchise location, while others assume ownership of an existing franchise. A third group adds the vibrant Merle Norman line to their existing retail operations, such as a gift shop or spa, creating even more traffic and revenue per square foot.
“Merle Norman has thrived over the years thanks to a willingness to adapt and reinvent while never sacrificing quality,” Richards says. “Our franchise-owner support is second to none, and our products continue to define beauty in the marketplace. That combination is why we get this kind of attention from respected industry watchers.”
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.
