Business Description

A hip high quality self-serve frozen yogurt franchise. Each shop features 8 state-of-the-art frozen yogurt machines, which provide 2 flavors each - hence their name 16 Handles.  Guests pick the cup size, the amount of yogurt they want, choosing from 16 rotating flavors, then load up at the self service bar with over 40 tasty toppings such as fresh fruit, candy & 6 different syrups.  There are over 50 yogurt varieties in their lineup including non-dairy, no sugar added, sugar free, gluten free and soy options. Plus everything is Kosher certified.  Their diverse menu also contains take home pints, pre-made & custom cakes, fro-yo sandwiches, waffle bowls, hot fudge, tea and more.

The store is bright & inviting with a sleek, modern design. The company is eco-friendly only using cups & spoons that are 100% compostable.

Another enticing incentive – the transfer fee is being waived on this new corporate location!

Competition: Indisputably the best-frozen yogurt franchise on the market today. A self-serve frozen yogurt operation with clever branding, it stands out from the crowd. They bring a fresh approach to the retail frozen dessert market with a one of a kind in-store experience that focuses on the creative expression of dessert. Their wide range of yogurt & topping options means there’s something on the menu for everyone. Their products are recession-resistant since guests pay by weight; they control the cost thus getting a premium product at a reasonable price, increasing the appeal even more. The self-serve aspect also minimizes staffing costs while maximizing revenues by allowing for greater consumer traffic during peak hours of operation. Finally, an eco-conscious company committed to sustainability, they use biodegradable packaging & spoons, plus compost & recycle whenever possible. In addition, each store plants 16 trees a day though an ongoing partnership with Trees for the Future.

Growth and Expansion: Launched in New York City in 2008, 16 Handles has quickly grown from a local hot spot to a nation-wide chain with over 35 frozen yogurt shops. The franchise is currently expanding their operations and brand both domestically & internationally with 13 more stores opening soon. It’s a turnkey franchise opportunity that is detailed, efficient and most importantly, successful. 16 Handles has it all - exciting food products, an eye-catching store by an award-winning designer, innovative marketing, unparalleled leadership, an awesome customer experience and more. Their concept is about choice, creativity and fun: letting people control their portion, flavor, and toppings (based on personal preferences or dietary needs). 16 Handles directly taps into the leading market trends of self-service and healthier eating. Here’s your chance to be part of the rapidly growing frozen dessert market, which is expected to exceed $27.6 billion this year with a forecasted 58% increase in sales over the next 5 years!

Support/Training: Two weeks training at this location on established standards, procedures and their extraordinary POS system. Along with a comprehensive, confidential operations manual assisting in all critical areas of management, food ordering and marketing. As well as, ongoing support from their experienced corporate team to guide you through controlling costs and running your business efficiently.
