One of Brandon’s top day spas has new ownership, but customers can still expect the same great service that DayDreams Day Spa & Bath Shop has always delivered.

Ownership of the top-rated spa changed hands in August when husband and wife team, Ben Keller and Niki Herron purchased it from the former owners, who decided to take time to spend with their family.

Herron said it was a long and winding road that finally brought them to become the new owners of DayDreams. The couple met while attending law school at Ohio State and moved to New York for a short time after graduating. They began living the fast-paced life of New Yorkers until the recession hit and their jobs were put on hold, forcing them to look for new employment. Soon they were working together at a law firm in Tampa, working side by side and loving it.

The couple moved a couple more times and Keller was working his way toward partner in his law firm when they had their son Miles. After some thorough soul-searching they realized that the fast-paced life and long hours required in their law profession was not a good match for their new expanded family.

“In the law, the more successful you are, the longer the hours,” said Herron. “We wanted to build something that would allow us freedom in our family life.”

Herron and Keller came back to Tampa and soon found DayDreams Day Spa. The spa is already well known in the Brandon area, having been voted Brandon’s Best Day Spa for 10 years and the new owners plan to maintain top-notch customer service. While they do have some changes in mind, most will be based on customer feedback and be rolled out gradually.

Clients can expect the same experienced staff to meet their relaxation needs.

“The staff is amazing and has made the entire transition so easy for us,” concluded Herron.
