    According to their website, yes, under the supervision of National Kosher Supervision (Rabbi Aaron Mehlman). http://16handles.com/store/ues.php

        Is it Jewish owned? I have no idea, but if it isn't, there's no halachic reason for it to close on Shabbos. There are many, many dairy, chain-type places out there that aren't Jewish owned and are open seven days a week - think kosher Dunkin Donuts, other ice cream shops, etc.

        I see you posted this many places. Honestly, you could always check the sites directly or other sites that list supervisions.
