Founded in 2008, 16 Handles is New York City's first self-serve frozen dessert shop. It has since grown to 30+ locations across five states, and is now expanding internationally, with 150 locations in development.
16 Handles sets itself apart with eye-catching in-store design and unparalleled customer experience. We highlight individuality and customization, encouraging fans to "flaunt their flavor" with 16 different frozen desserts, 50+ toppings and sauces.
16 Handles offers a variety of frozen novelties such as Fro-Yo cakes, waffle bowls, Fro-Yo sandwiches, take-home pints, and toppings to-go. We have also expanded our menu to include smoothies and shakes, bottled beverages and grab & go snacks. In June 2017, 16 Handles introduced ice cream to its lineup for the very first time.
Why Our Franchise?
16 Handles stores average among the highest average unit sales volumes in the frozen yogurt industry. Having experienced strong sales, profits and on-going support with their first store, the majority of our franchise partners have gone on to open additional units and are now multi-unit operators. We focus on ensuring the best possible success for our franchise partners. It all adds up to a fantastic franchise opportunity.
Experience flavor freedom – you'll have more than 80 flavors of Fro-Yo to choose from plus an endless toppings bar filled with fan favorites and a few surprises along the way. In addition to yogurt, 16 Handles' culinary team, led by chefs who know how to craft and sell deliciousness, is constantly innovating proprietary offerings for our toppings bar and beyond. We offer a full line of Fro-Yo cakes, cookie sandwiches, and WhipUps!™ that extend our products outside of the cup. We've worked tirelessly to implement systemwide kosher certification for almost every product served in every location, including frozen yogurt, sorbets, and toppings.
