(ABC 6 News) - If you're not the biggest fan of household chores; like shoveling, washing the dishes, or even spring cleaning, there's an app for you. It's all thanks to some John Marshall High School students.
"FAVR" was launched a week ago with the goal of connecting people needing help with those who can.
Ken Nguyen and Solomon Antoine spent countless hours working on the web application at Collier Coworking in Rochester.
"It took 4 months of ideas and then 2 months actually executing those ideas," said Antoine.
"They are our youngest members,” said Colliders Community Manager, Jamie Sundsbak. “We don't charge them like we do with other members because we figure it's a great thing to do for our community."
According to Antoine, they designed a service platform which allows “users to request inconvenient tasks to be complete at their own price."
"We created this app for people that don't have a job and want to make quick money," added Nguyen.
Users connect with a freelance worker on askfavr.com and a secured payment is made online (once the task is complete). FAVR’s Co-Owners then take 20% of each transaction. It's in its early stages, but they say there will be about 30 freelancers to choose from … all having passed a background check.
"We worked a lot to get this up and running," said Nguyen.
They’ve found tremendous support along the way.
"I actually see a huge market for this,” said Sundsbak. “I am seeing nothing but big things for these guys."
Just the website is up and running right now. However, FAVR will be available on the App Store and Google Play this summer.
