ATLANTA & FRANKLIN, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#atlantaClick

Takl,
Inc.
, the company behind a new app-based mobile platform that
connects providers and users on-demand
for home services
, today announced its entry into the Atlanta region
with more than 2600 local home service providers lined up to participate
in the launch of the app. Takl providers will be available on-demand to
provide residents a wide range of on-demand chores and tasks at pre-set
prices.

Takl, based in Nashville, debuted the home services app in Nashville
last summer and quickly expanded into middle Tennessee, followed by the
Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas; Tampa, Florida; Phoenix, Arizona; Charlotte,
North Carolina and Miami, Florida areas. Already Takl has more than
10,000 providers and thousands of registered customers. The company has
aggressive plans for expansion to more than 30 other metropolitan areas
over the next nine months.

“Atlanta is a tech-savvy region that is growing quickly. The strong
initial response we have from providers and the city at large shows us
that the city is as excited as we are for Takl to arrive,” said Willis
Johnson, CEO and Chairman of Takl. “We make it quick and easy to connect
providers and customers for chores at a reasonable price – that seems to
speak to people right at the heart of their lives. Everyone wants to
save time and have a less stressful home life.”

The Takl app is the only one hour, pre-priced mobile platform in the
home services segment with small jobs for $400 or less. Popular chores
include lawn
care
, house
cleaning
, junk removal and small
home repairs
. The on-demand app connects self-employed providers who
have passed background
checks
with users who need chores, lessons and small jobs completed.
The free app is available for download on both the iOS App Store and
Google Play Store.

Takl users can request that their chore
or odd job
be serviced in about an hour or schedule the task for a
future reserved day and time. Every one of the over 400 chores is
pre-priced with a detailed description included so that both users and
providers have equal expectations.

The app is now live in the Nashville, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Tampa, Phoenix,
Charlotte and Miami areas and is rolling out regionally on a national
level. The company has already registered thousands of people to work in
the Nashville, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Tampa, Phoenix, Charlotte, and Miami
areas as independent self-employed chore and task providers utilizing
the Takl platform. Prospective providers and customers can download the
free app to sign up or get more information online at Takl.com.

Johnson, 69, a seasoned start
up veteran
, was named a regional Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the
year in 2004 and his company, Copart (CPRT), was ranked at the top of
Deloitte’s “The Exceptional 100” list of companies in 2015. His “rags to
riches” story took him from owning one auto scrap yard to heading up a
multi-billion dollar global business and has been published in his
autobiography “Junk to Gold.”

Under Johnson’s leadership, Copart revolutionized the auto auction
industry through the development of an Internet auto auction platform
that connects buyers and sellers in real time bidding. The Takl platform
connects home service providers of all kinds to other people needing
on-demand help with small chores and tasks. By accessing the on-demand
Takl app, providers and users can then connect for pre-defined chores
with preset prices utilizing the company’s proprietary technology.

In addition to Willis Johnson, fellow co-founders include Greg McCollum
of Franklin, who has over 30 years of experience as a general contractor
in the Nashville area, and Steven Cohan, who teamed up with Johnson 25
years ago in the early days of Copart and currently serves on Copart’s
board of directors. Other key members of the senior management team
include Tennessee State Senator Jack Johnson, Chairman of the Tennessee
Commerce and Labor Committee and Lee Crisp, former President of Pepsi
MidAmerica and holder of 45 technology patents applied throughout the
beverage industry.
