Metal Supermarkets Signs Agreement to Introduce Wichita to Speed, Variety and Convenience for Small-Quantity Metals
WICHITA, Kan. – Metal Supermarkets announced today it has signed a franchise agreement to bring its second Kansas location to Wichita.
“Over the past 25 years, I have worked for large and small manufacturing companies focused on solving problems and driving customer-focused improvements. In those roles, I always did my best to see everything from the customer’s perspective,” said Jim Hopper, who will be the owner of Metal Supermarkets Wichita. “Those are the same principles that Metal Supermarkets upholds, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be a part of a brand that aligns with my professional philosophies so well.”
The deal with Hopper comes amid a pivotal growth phase for Metal Supermarkets. With over 100 locations open across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, the company is executing a strategic expansion plan to add 50 new locations during the next four years in targeted markets, including Austin, Boston, Detroit, Milwaukee, New York, Phoenix, Sacramento and San Antonio.
“World-class customer service is one of our core values. Jim has shown us he is dedicated to upholding the standards we have set and understands how critical the customer experience is to building a successful business,” said Stephen Schober, President and CEO of Metal Supermarkets. “This approach will help him meet the demand we are seeing for metal supplies in Southern Kansas.”
Metal Supermarkets is actively awarding locations to qualified individuals like Hopper, 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.
