Fro yo war!

Or, at least, fro yo skirmish! The 16 Handles chain is opening a location in Albany -- McKownville, actually. The company wouldn't tell us where, exactly. (A rep for Stuyvesant Plaza said it's not the spot. So, we're guessing -- and it's only a guess -- Crossgates. The mall seems unlikely now that Yeh! is going there.) That would put it in close competition with the new-style TCBY that opened on Western Ave across from Stuyvesant Plaza last November. The area's first 16 Handles opened in Clifton Park a year ago.

Maybe the old Wendy's on Western? If not can you find out what's going in there?

That spot is going to be a deli:

I don't know that I could think of a worse name for a yogurt place than "16 Handles" (makes me think of CB radios and truckers) but some of the flavors look way yum!

I'm intrigued...

16 Handles has it on their website map...

oh great. if this map is showing the accurate exact location, then I'm doomed. it's literally right across the street from my work...

@Jamie, Rebecca: I saw that map location, but it's in the parking lot for a UAlbany office building. I figured it could be going into University Plaza next door, but all the spots in the plaza are currently occupied.

Part of SUNY is in McKownville. I do not believe any part of Crossgates is in McKownville.

@Kerosena: I wondered about the borders of McKownville. I agree that Crossgates seems more McKownville-adjacent than actually in it.

I'd like to find a hamlet map of the Capital Region. We have all these ill-defined places.

16 Handles is now opening soon in Glenmont!

... Nano has been great for Albany and upstate, but the ends just don't justify the means. This was public money being steered in exchange for political donations and bribes. It didn't need to happen for those businesses to come here. (In fact we might have gotten better deals if it hadn't.) ...
