Happy 14th Anniversary to the Spa of Essex
This week I decided instead of the Journey to Wellness blog I would take the opportunity to wish the Spa of Essex a Happy Anniversary (I’m not certain if it’s official because we’ve been closed since March 17th, but I figured we are still in business so its official enough!) and give thanks to so many who have contributed along the way.
Fourteen Years Ago today we had our first client! (And I think she was our only client) The Spa team consisted of two estheticians (one of which is still with us today, DeAnne Mauri), two massage therapists and me. Those were the days when we had a lot of extra time on our hands (kind of like now). But on a serious note as of today May 1, 2020 the Spa has almost 30,000 clients and continues to grow (well as soon as we can open for business again).
I would like to take a moment to express my gratitude to all those who have helped make the Spa what it is today. First and foremost a huge thanks to my Mom (in heaven) for believing in me and giving me the chance to open the Spa, my children for often having to be second fiddle to the Spa, Bobby Hofferth and Tommy Mauri aka Spa Hubby for always tending to the never ending Spa Honey Do List, our team members (both past and present) and of course I have saved the best for last…YOU! Yes YOU all of our wonderful, loyal Clients!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Cheers to another 14 Years! Can’t wait to be back in business!
