16 Handles has just announced expansion plans, with three new stores in the works. They will join the just-opened Chelsea location, which recently started to dish out frozen treats on Eighth Avenue and 19th Street. A branch will open by the end of august in Murray Hill (428 Third Avenue) followed by a SoHo outpost between Prince and Spring in October.
A West Village location is also in the works, that one will be at 245 Bleecker Street and will open in November. These will join the 26 shops that are currently open in five states - say what you will but people clearly want some fro-yo action!
