Our Trusted Regina Partner En Vogue Day Spa & Gift Studio are Celebrating 20 Years in business!! Here is a message from the owner Pat.

WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE??

This year is our 20th year in business! Twenty years ago my daughter Traci and I decided over lunch that we would open a spa. Traci had the spa background and my background was in business and commercial property management.

Here is a bit of our story...


It didn't take us long to buy the original house and we were on our way. Traci and three others on our Team began a journey that was both rewarding and at times challenging. Within a few years, more staff and thankfully our growing client list necessitated our expansion to the house next door. A Pedway between the houses, major renovations and our expansion was ready to open.


In time, Traci wanted to spread her wings so she and her now husband, Darren opened a spa in the Hotel Saskatchewan. She loved En Vogue and wanted to include En Vogue as part of her spa name, which looking back was not the smartest thing to do. Our spas were never affiliated and always operated separately. Due to the confusion, Traci and Darren renamed their spa Essence Organic Spa.


As Traci left, luckily my youngest daughter Kim was at a point in her life that allowed her to bring her skills and spirit to 

En Vogue. I am sure you know Kim... she thinks of clients as family. She celebrates clients good times, cries with clients in their sad times and if you are a regular and suddenly not here she will call you to see if you are okay.


By now, our Team has grown to 22 people and our Leading Team have been with us for many years.


We are busy finding new treatments and always learning how to provide the best and safest services for our clients. En Vogue has been a member of The Leading Spas of Canada for many years, also ISPA (International Spa Association) and more recently Trusted Regina. I have always been concerned about the lack of regulations for spas so decided to apply for a director position on the Leading Spas of Canada, where I served a four year term helping develop Best Practices and Standards for Canadian spas.


En Vogue has always been involved in the community, because we believe in giving back and paying forward. I was a director of Sofia House for ten years and Kim also served for several years. I was awarded the President's Award from the United Way for community involvement, which is due to the help of both Traci & Kim, their partners, Darren and Chad, my son Kirk and anyone else I could get to help. I am a grateful and proud mom of two fantastic women and so fortunate to have friends and family support.


Traci and Darren are adventurists and decided the time was right for them to sell Essence. They sold to a person that had worked with them for years and who they thought could take their dream and make it theirs. Unfortunately within a few years, Essence claimed bankruptcy. Even though Traci and Darren were no longer involved and En Vogue was never involved in Essence we all took that hard.


So here we are, En Vogue continues to be a leading spa, offering some unique services that are not available anywhere else. We are committed to our clients safety and wellness. Our future will include researching products, treatments and equipment that we know will help our clients. We do not offer any treatments that are fads, or that do not deliver the outcome promised.


I have almost persuaded Traci to come back to En Vogue part-time when she is not out traipsing the world. I am hoping she can help Kim with En Vogue when I finally have to retire... LOL! I am fighting it, because I love to work and I love En Vogue.


So... Kim and I want to say "Thank You" Regina and surrounding areas! "Thank You" Fantastic En Vogue Team! We wouldn't be celebrating 20 Years without you!


Cheers! Pat

Everything about this business centers around family including the name Jack Keaton's which is affectionately named after two of owners Brett and Kristi's children Jack and Keaton.  Brett and Kristi later had a third beautiful little girl and since the name had already been established Brett and Kristi wondered what to do.  So they decided to name their now famous Sweet Charlotte’s BBQ Sauce after her.  They also have created some amazing cookies in her name as well. 

Amazing food from a local Red Seal Chef - Brett Huber has been a red seal chef for 12 years where he gained incomparable experience all over the world. Including Vancouver, Pender Island, and London, England. The adamant professional, Brett describes his cooking style as, “refined and unpretentious“.

Jack Keaton's is locally owned!  Kristi Huber is a master of marketing and the exceptional work she has done with Jack Keaton's makes people think it isn't locally owned but that couldn't be further from the truth! With her marketing, management, and food service experience, she works to create a customer experience where things are done right the first time and customers can expect nothing less than excellent service.

Put it all together and the unexpected surprise of service and food that is unlike anywhere else!

If you are looking for an exceptional business to cater your next event try Jack Keaton's!  Here is what some of their customer had to say about their experience:

"We recently had Jack Keaton's cater a backyard BBQ for a family birthday. The brisket and pulled pork were ready on time, piping hot and tasted Unbelievable. Thank you so much Brett and Kristi!!! Such a great success and everyone LOVED the food!!!!" - Todd Kemp

"Love the brisket! Love the Bacon Wrapped Burnt Enz! The BBQ Pulled Pork Quesadillas are fantastic! All three are gluten free. We've been loyal customers since they first opened, in the north end, and now they're even closer." - Bruce Q Thompson
