Why 2019 Is the Year to Become a Merle Norman Franchisee
Discover a rewarding career; demand for Merle Norman products is expected to continue in the new year
There’s never been a better time than 2019 to join Merle Norman Cosmetics as a studio owner. Having enjoyed a successful year of franchise growth in 2018, we look forward to continued expansion and franchise development in the new year.
A Merle Norman Cosmetics franchise is a wonderful choice for entrepreneurs who want a career that has the potential to be both financially and personally rewarding.
Steady demand for Merle Norman is expected to continue in 2019
According to industry reports, consumers will continue to demand high-quality cosmetic and skincare products, all of which Merle Norman offers.
Natural ingredients and high-performing anti-aging items will remain popular with consumers. Merle Norman products contain natural and plant-based ingredients in our new Skintelligent System, as well as our three exclusive facials offered with the MN Spa. Partnering with Merle Norman means providing prestige products, made of the very finest ingredients, at an affordable price.
“We focus mainly on the quality and integrity of the product, so our formulations are top-notch. We use the best ingredients that are available and the latest technology that’s available, and we stand behind our products,” says Erica Herrel, Research and Development Manager for Merle Norman Cosmetics.
Regardless of the possibility of a fickle economic climate, the cosmetics and skincare industry is expected to stay healthy. Research shows that even when times are tough, the cosmetic industry remains stable, and women spend more than $426 billion a year on beauty products.
Be your own boss and create a life you love, helping women
look and feel their best
Merle Norman believed in empowering women through business ownership to achieve their dreams and realize their full potential. When you become a studio owner, you carry on Merle Norman’s original vision, helping women look and feel better about themselves every single day.
Don’t waste another minute in a corporate job that’s become rote and meaningless. We want to help eager, passionate entrepreneurs discover the flexibility and freedom of Merle Norman studio ownership. Our owners come from all walks of life, but they have one thing in common: a passion for helping others feel better about themselves through the beauty and artistry of our cosmetics.
We do not require you to have a background in retail, cosmetics, or skincare; in fact, we will train you in every aspect of studio ownership — including business, marketing, sales and makeup application.
“Some of our best studio owners have come from a second or third career,” says Travis Richards, Vice President of Franchising. “We’ve found that studio owners who are focused on education and helping somebody else — for example, school teachers, or retired school teachers, nurses, flight attendants — become very good owners because they’re very organized, they really understand customer service, and they just want to help their communities.”
Start the new year with a new career with Merle Norman Cosmetics franchise
We are actively recruiting entrepreneurs to help us reach our goal of 65 new and resale studios in 2019. With more than 1,000 studios in North America, we still have optimal territory available for you to open your own cosmetics studio franchise.
“This is a really exciting time to be part of Merle Norman,” says Richards. “Merle Norman Cosmetics has a rich legacy but is always reinventing to remain current. We’re more relevant now than ever before. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for our company and everyone who is a part of it.”
