Metal Supermarkets to Open in Baton Rouge

By on
Metal Supermarkets is opening its newest location in Baton Rouge, La. Like all of Metal Supermarkets’ facilities, it is designed to address the need for metal by local manufacturers, machinists, maintenance and repair, artists, hobbyists, tool and die shops and more.

Metal Supermarkets Baton Rouge is owned and operated by Louisiana resident David Machado, who previously opened the New Orleans store in April 2021. After being awarded the 2022 Metal Supermarkets Rookie of the Year, which recognizes outstanding achievement as a new franchise, Machado is leading Metal Supermarkets’ expansion in Louisiana. A former professional pilot and metal hobbyist, Machado is familiar with the value Metal Supermarkets can offer as a convenient, fast option for other businesses, homeowners and hobbyists in Baton Rouge.

"We’re excited to bring the world-class Metal Supermarkets customer service and metal-buying convenience to the whole Baton Rouge metro area,” said Machado. “We will deliver the same professional service that New Orleans-area businesses have received, and I am excited to expand so we can provide contiguous support to all local businesses and consumers from West Baton Rouge to New Orleans East. If you have a metal problem, we will help you solve it.”

The new store is located at 11430 Merchant Drive in Baton Rouge.
