About Merle Norman Cosmetics
Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, Merle Norman Cosmetics develops, manufactures and distributes its own full line of skin care and cosmetic products. These cosmetics are sold through independently owned and operated Merle Norman Cosmetic Studios in the United States and Canada. 85 years ago, Merle Norman formulated products to address the beauty needs of women—and empowered many to become successful entrepreneurs who owned their own Studios.
If you enjoy beauty and fashion, and love the prospect of helping women look and feel their best, Merle Norman offers an exciting opportunity for you to become your own boss. We offer prestigious products primarily manufactured in the USA, and provide complimentary samples to support our “Try before you buy” concept.
From 150-1,200 square feet, you can choose a floor plan in a mall, strip center or freestanding store that fits your budget. Unlike other franchise companies, we DO NOT require a marketing or advertising contribution fund. Instead, we actually contribute 60% to approved local advertising.
You’ll benefit from key cost-saving support, which allows you to reinvest back into your own business:
Our corporate support spans from lease negotiation and site selection to build-out and store design. Extensive training and an annual continuing education conference will help you become a successful beauty expert. National print advertising, impactful marketing, TV commercials, radio ad campaigns and social media content are at your fingertips. And if you need help, we’re just a phone call away.
The cosmetic industry is stable and robust with women spending over $426 billion dollars annually on beauty products!
