“At Town, we say ‘we define neighborhoods as much as they define us,’” Ms. Stone stated. “This frozen yogurt social at 16 Handles for one of the largest residential towers on the Upper East Side is a great example of how we strive to bring neighborhood residents and families together.”
16 Handles’ commitment to sustainability made it a smart choice for the affair; the company uses cornstarch spoons and biodegradable cups, and pledges to compost and recycle whenever possible. They also partner with Trees for the Future, helping plant 16 trees every day for every 16 Handles location. Susan Cohen, owner of all four 16 Handles joints in Manhattan, said that she was elated about hosting the meet-and-greet because both companies share a dedication to community outreach and education.
