20-Year Army Warrant Officer Signs Agreement to Introduce Tulsa to Speed, Variety & Convenience for Small-Quantity Metals

TULSA, Okla.Metal Supermarkets announced today it has signed a franchise agreement to bring a fast and convenient metal supply option to businesses and consumers in Tulsa. The new location will be owned by 20-year army warrant officer veteran, Trae Caldwell.

“The combination of my military and civilian careers has provided me the opportunity to learn leadership and business skills that will play a vital role in the operation of my Metal Supermarkets franchise,” said Caldwell. “Metal Supermarkets offers the most complete franchise system, all focused on franchisee success. With the backing of the Metal Supermarkets brand and corporate team, we’ll be able to tap into the growth of the Tulsa market that has drawn more and more employers in the last few years.”

Joining the Army National Guard in 2000, Caldwell retired in 2020 as an Army Warrant Officer after 20 years of service and one tour in Iraq. In addition to his military service background, Caldwell has held several business development roles including operations, commercial, project management and finance. Caldwell will be the day-to-day operator and manager of Metal Supermarkets Tulsa which is expected to open before the end of 2021.

“Trae brings an extensive background in business development to his new location in Tulsa and knows how important an exceptional customer experience is to the brand,” said Stephen Schober, President & CEO of Metal Supermarkets. “We’ve been impressed by Trae’s commitment to his community. He is an extremely capable operator, and we look forward to growing with him in the greater Tulsa area.

Metal Supermarkets is actively awarding locations to qualified individuals like Caldwell, who have strong customer service experience. The moderate investment range for a Metal Supermarkets location is between $216,500 to $403,000, and qualified owners must have a minimum of $150,000 in liquid capital to be considered. Qualified U.S. military veterans may be able to take advantage of a $5,000 reduction from the initial franchise fee.
