A small chain of self-serve frozen yogurt shops has left the Boston area--and the state.
Eater Boston is reporting (via the Patch) that 16 Handles in the Coolidge Corner section of Brookline has closed, confirming what several sources have told us. The chain, which first came to Beacon Street in January of 2013, had been planning to expand to other parts of the Boston area, but no other locations ended up opening in the region, and with the closing of the Brookline shop, there are now no outlets of 16 Handles anywhere in Massachusetts.
Currently, two locations of the New York-based 16 Handles can be found in New England--in Fairfield and Stamford, CT.
The address for this now-closed frozen yogurt shop in Coolidge Corner was: 16 Handles, 1309 Beacon Street, Brookline, MA, 02446. The website for the chain can be found at http://www.16handles.com/
