In an office environment answering a customer with the response "I will work on your project in my spare time". I feel there is a more professional way to answer. Suggestions?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
the phrase "I will work on your project as soon as possible" might be appropriate.
Using the phrase "when I get a moment" might be appropriate. It implies that the task will be completed, if not at that exact time:
"I will work on your project when I get a moment"
As suggested in the comments, I also think mentioning working it into your schedule is a tactful way of getting your message across:
"I will work on your project as my schedule permits"
