Joining long term, established stores in Nashville and Knoxville, Metal Supermarkets Chattanooga is the third Tennessee store and will offer Tennesseans over 8,000 types, shapes and grades of metal, cut to each customer’s exact specifications. Along with its convenience, speed and commitment to customer service, Metal Supermarkets will be the one-stop-shop for manufacturers, machinists, maintenance and repair, tool and die shops, hospitals, hotels, universities, schools, homeowners, artists, hobbyists and more in the Chattanooga area, said officials.

“Throughout my career in manufacturing, I struggled to find a small-quantity metal provider that offered an easy, convenient option,” said Jeff Wolaver, the owner of Metal Supermarkets Chattanooga. “When looking at business ownership opportunities, Metal Supermarkets stood out, offering a solution to what I saw as a community-wide need. I’m excited to bring a quality metal supplier offering superior customer service to businesses and hobbyists in Chattanooga.”

With 25 years of experience in manufacturing as an engineer, operations manager, consultant and business owner, Mr. Wolaver connected with Metal Supermarkets as a result of his industry expertise. A resident of Chattanooga, he possesses knowledge of the products and services needed by the local community and is determined to build trusting relationships by offering a premier service. He is dedicated to maintaining the quality standards and convenience customers expect from Metal Supermarkets with his new location.

Each Metal Supermarkets location provides solutions to customers’ metal needs in both the business-to-business and business-to-consumer categories. With a diverse product base and a no-minimum order quantity, Metal Supermarkets will quickly earn long-lasting relationships with customers as a result of delivering an exceptional customer experience.

“With Jeff’s industry experience and background, we’re confident that he will drive great success in the Chattanooga business community,” said Stephen Schober, president and CEO of Metal Supermarkets. “We’re thrilled to have Jeff join our franchisee network as we expand our presence in Tennessee.”

With locations across the United States Canada and the United Kingdom, the Chattanooga opening comes amid a growth period for the international metal-supply business. Deemed an essential business, the supplier ensures each customer in Chattanooga will always be able to acquire what they need. Metal Supermarkets provides a recession-resistant, innovative and durable opportunity for interested franchise investors, said officials.
