3 Reasons to Invest in a Merle Norman Cosmetics Studio Franchise in 2020
The iconic cosmetic franchise studio offers a proven business model that maximizes profitability, is simple to scale and highly efficient
With the New Year well underway, entrepreneurs are seeking a business opportunity that offers high margins, a simple business model and robust training and support over the long-term to ensure longevity. Merle Norman, a cosmetic franchise studio that continues to be poised for growth into the future after nearly a century, checks all of those boxes.
Founded in the 1920s, Merle Norman started an empire in the kitchen of her California home. The result was the innovative “3 Steps to Beauty” featuring PowderBase™, Cleansing Cream™ and Miracol® PowderBase™. Nearly a century later, the latter two are still bestsellers and the cosmetics and product standards she created are still highly respected across generations. More importantly, our unique skincare and beauty products cannot be found in any other brick-and-mortar beauty shop, department store or multi-branded cosmetic store.
Even better, our development campaign will grow the brand by hundreds of franchise units in the coming years. We’re actively seeking business-minded women and men with a passion for beauty, the desire to influence the lives of women as well as a desire for a flexible career to bring our cosmetics studios into their community.
