New frozen yogurt shop opens in Hudson Lights Complex

FORT LEE, NJ–– The Business District Alliance (BDA) of Fort Lee, joined by Fort Lee council members, celebrated 16 Handles joining Fort Lee’s Hudson Lights complex on December 19th, 2016 with a ribbon cutting event. Members of the community, family and friends were invited to explore the space while enjoying some refreshments and frozen treats.  16 Handles is New York’s #1 frozen yogurt and dessert brand and true to their name, offers 16 different flavors of frozen yogurt. They offer a variety of frozen yogurt flavors along with an endless combination of toppings, they encourage every guest to “flaunt their flavor”.

16 Handles is committed to giving back to the community; they provide compostable cups and recyclable spoons for customer use.  In addition, every location plants 16 trees to help protect and grow our environment.  Along with their eco-friendly initiatives, they use Kosher ingredients to help promote a longer and healthier lifestyle and offer low fat, fat free, gluten free and vegan options.

Fort Lee BDA Executive Director, Stuart Z. Koperweis, added, “16 Handles is a great addition to Hudson Lights and our Main Street  District and we are excited to have them join our community.”

The Hudson Lights complex is a new development in downtown Fort Lee that was designed to serve a strong demand for high-end living, culture, arts, entertainment, dining, and shopping all in one location just minutes from the George Washington Bridge.  Franchise owner, Mario Salvo, commented, “We were attracted to Fort Lee because of the vibe of the community, it seemed very tight and warm. We have friends who live locally and after doing research on various areas, we thought we would be able to bring the 16 Handles upbeat vibe to Fort Lee.  We came across the Hudson Lights complex and wanted to be a part of a new up-and-coming attraction in the town. We are looking forward to doing events with and for the community in the coming months!”
