Metal Supermarkets Signs N.O. Franchise Agreement

NEW ORLEANS – Metal Supermarkets, a supplier of small-quantity metals, announced today that it has signed a franchise agreement to bring a metal supply option to businesses and consumers in the greater New Orleans area.

Metal Supermarkets New Orleans will offer over 8,000 types, shapes and grades of metal cut to each customer’s specifications. Metal Supermarkets wants to be the one-stop-shop for manufacturers, machinists, repair shops, tool and die shops, hospitals, hotels, universities, schools, homeowners, artists and hobbyists.

“I, like many others in the area, have consistently struggled with obtaining cut-to-size, quality metals quickly,” said New Orleans franchisee David Machado, who has a background in aviation. “I know this store will benefit the many businesses, contractors and artists in the community. Metal consumers should have access to quality materials without compromising quality or quantity requirements. We will provide the proper solution for each customer.”

Research has indicated a strong demand for our business in the area and we’re ready to support David in servicing this market, while upholding our high standards.”
