16 Handles Continues Expansion With Four New Stores

Some folks have complained about the crazy amount of frozen yogurt stores taking over Manhattan, but those folks really should just go and get themselves some soft serve. Mini-chain 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!


  1. I'm surprised that nobody else finds it gross to have the public pouring its own fro-yo. It's not like the staff at the East Village location clean the handles on the machines every five minutes. There's a reason why restaurant workers have to wash their hands, but its not like customers are forced to do the same.

  2. Your right. Customers are gross, and most of these store are not kept clean.
