New York City-based 16 Handles, a self-serve frozen yogurt shop, is launching six new stores in Texas this spring, expanding its nationwide footprint, according to a Dec. 18 news release.

The new shops will be opening in the Houston, Dallas and Austin areas this spring with additional Texas shops under development, according to the release. The Texas locations will feature between 1,500 to 2,500 square feet, and includes ample space for comfortable lounge-style seating. The 16 Handles menu offers 16 soft serve flavors; over 50 toppings and sauces; and a variety of frozen novelties, including cakes, cookie dough and take-home pints.

Although specific addresses were not available for some coming soon locations in Texas, 16 Handles has signed the following franchise agreements throughout Texas, according to the release and locations listed on the business' website:
  • Austin: Jim Duffy will open a location in Austin.
  • Frisco: Husband and wife Sachin and Aparna Deshpande will open a location at 15922 Eldorado Parkway, Ste. 500.
  • Magnolia: Ryan and Crystal Waugh signed an agreement to open two 16 Handles locations—one in Magnolia and a second in northwest Houston.
  • Richmond: David and Lin Ding will open 16 Handles in Richmond.
  • Missouri City: Couple Myles and Tabatha Abshire will open a store in Missouri City.
Specific leases have not been signed for locations other than Frisco, according to the company.

“We wanted to have more touch points with the community and embrace the community we live in. 16 Handles is giving us the opportunity to create a place for more people to connect and gather, and we're really excited to partner with local schools and businesses for a sense of community and dessert," said Myles Abshire, the franchise owner of the Missouri City location coming soon, in the release.
