Add a space after commas in a coldfusion string

I have a select box that allows the user to choose multiple choices and then my cfoutput code writes this to the page. It outputs the choices separated by a comma but no space after the comma. The choice with multiples is "usernames". Right now they show as: username1,username2,username3 etc... I'd like: username1, username2, username3 etc..

I'd like to add a space after each comma. Thank you.

<cfoutput><p>User Names: #usernames#  Range: #StDate# - #EdDate#</p></cfoutput>
