  • UNMATCHED INNOVATION

    At 16 Handles, we believe in setting the standard for our industry. In an on-demand, digital world, we’ve mastered off-premise ordering and delivery to bring the celebration to our guests, wherever they are. The 16 Handles mobile app and online ordering system keep guests in our own ecosystem, improving their experience and increasing revenue for our franchise partners.

  • A FLAVOR LIBRARY OF TOP HITS

    Our flavor library of nearly 100 soft-serve options ranges from classic frozen yogurt to top-tier vegan flavors, made with innovative bases like oat milk. The 16 Handles Artisan creamery uses only the best, natural ingredients to create memorable, craveable flavors from brand staples like Alphonso mangoes and scratch-baked cookies. Our Artisan flavors are available only at 16 Handles, and our guests know just where to satisfy their cravings.

  • SALES, PROFITS, AND SUPPORT

    16 Handles stores average among the highest average unit sales volumes in the frozen yogurt industry. Having experienced strong sales, profits, and ongoing support with their first location, many of our now multi-unit franchise partners have gone on to open additional shops as part of our 16 Handles family. We focus on ensuring the success of our franchise partners with forward-looking innovation, on-trend marketing, and consistent support.

  • COMMUNITY-FOCUSED APPROACH

    From global to local, 16 Handles believes in participating within the communities we serve. Our enduring partnership with Trees for the Future and environmentally-friendly packaging help us remain conscious stewards of our planet. A completely Kosher product line-up plus endless options for all dietary needs allow us to serve a diverse range of guests. And in our towns and cities, our franchise partners work with local causes, schools, and organizations to give back and to fundraise. Happiness might start at the handles, but we believe in sharing it far beyond our four walls.
