16 Handles, an innovative frozen dessert brand, today announced that it is expanding into the Boston metro area and is actively looking for available sites and prospective franchisees.
Boston’s first 16 Handles’ location will open in the Town of Brookline at 1309 Beacon St. next to Trader Joe’s. The new store is slated to open in November 2012.
16 Handles has 25 locations in five states.
“All signs show that frozen yogurt will continue to be a hot commodity and an industry that isn’t close to slowing down,” says Solomon Choi, founder and CEO of 16 Handles. “Those that choose to open a 16 Handles immediately become part of our growing family, and we support each and every franchise operator every step of the way from site location and build out to marketing and operations.
“We’ve cut our teeth on the toughest market to crack—New York City—and we’re excited to take what we’ve learned about the frozen yogurt consumer and translate that into success as we continue to grow and expand.”
