NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Frozen yogurt brand 16 Handles is opening a New Rochelle location and celebrating its arrival with free frozen yogurt and live music Saturday, April 6, from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.
The new store will feature 16 rotating flavors of premium frozen yogurt, along with a fully loaded toppings bar and frozen yogurt novelties, including cakes and fro-yo cookie sandwiches.
“Frozen yogurt is all about fun, friends and family and our premium, delicious flavors and toppings are going to raise the bar for fro-yo in New Rochelle,” Bruce Zakalik, franchise partner and owner of the new 16 Handles, said in a statement. “New Rochelle is such a fantastic town, and we’re excited to bring our concept across the river to create a new gathering spot for the community.”
The store, a 1,200-square-foot space in the North Ridge Shopping Center, will create 25 new jobs.
