MILFORD, Conn., January 7, 2014 - Waterbury, CT-based Sundae Spa has announced the opening of a second spa and salon at the Westfield Connecticut Post Mall in Milford. On Saturday, January 11th, a 1PM ribbon-cutting will take place, followed by the1:30PM-7PM Grand Opening Celebration.
In honor of the Grand Opening, Sundae Spa will give 50 free facials to attendees between 2PM-3PM, and another 50 attendees will be able to make their own complimentary lip balm from 3PM-4PM. Free ice cream will be offered throughout the day to all attendees. In addition, Sundae Spa will be premiering a brand new model search in conjunction with “Good For You Girls,” a company that provides a suite of products that focus on natural, gluten free, vegan skincare. There will also be a number of raffles offering both Sundae Spa gift certificates and the chance to win a Grand Spa Party with eight friends.
Sundae Spa, a full service salon and spa for children, offers a unique mix of traditional salon services with the opportunity for children to create their very own ‘brand’ of personal hair and bath products, which is inline with the spa’s mantra of being A Deliciously Interactive Adventure.
“The inspiration for Sundae Spa came from a family vacation,” said founder and owner, Kim Swan. “I love doing things with my children and getting them involved. We booked a spa experience for the kids that promised fun and sweet treats. Sadly, the experience was less than yummy but it left us with a taste to use our own creative ideas and start Sundae Spa.”
Founded in 2010 by mother-of-seven Kim Swan, Sundae Spa utilizes Swan’s background as a former high school teacher, education product developer and Girl Scout leader to combine everything that keeps children both educated and entertained. Sundae Spa is a place where kids can come to make sweet treats, while learning, looking good and having fun.
Prior to the Grand Opening, Sundae Spa will host children from The Sunshine Kids Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides positive group activities and emotional support for young cancer patients. The Sunshine Kids will arrive at Sundae Spa to a red-carpet entrance via limousine, receiving the full treatment from Swan and her staff of candy-named technicians.

About Sundae Spa:
The Inspiration for Sundae Spa came from a family vacation. For something different, I booked a spa experience for the kids that promised fun and sweet treats for your hands and feet. (I love doing things with my children and getting them involved). On our 3 hour drive we imagined all kinds of wonderful things we would do together at the spa. Sadly the experience was less than yummy but it did leave us with a taste to use our own creative ideas and start Sundae Spa.
And Then... Immediately upon returning I threw myself into research – similar products, other spas for children, complimentary businesses that offered experiential learning – no one was doing what we had envisioned though all the businesses were thriving. Sundae Spa brings the best of them together in "a place where kids can come to make sweet treats while learning, looking good and having fun." With years of experience as a science teacher and having worked with all kinds of children I was sure our ideas would be a hit.
