Insurance that works as hard for your business as you do.
As a restaurant owner, you know the amount of work it takes to run your business on a day-to-day basis. You might also know the statistics about how tough it is to survive and thrive in the business. But did you know that getting adequate insurance at least gives you a fighting chance by mitigating some of the risks involved in the food industry?
What every restaurant owner should know about restaurant insurance.
On top of traditional business insurance, it’s well worth considering a custom-built restaurant insurance policy, as this will not only make life simpler but may even cover some risks you hadn’t considered. There are unique aspects of running a restaurant that make it different than other types of businesses, which means different coverage is required.
Protect the property your restaurant is on.
One of the most important parts of most restaurants is the property it is located on. For that reason, most restaurants will usually cover risks to property, such as the building and equipment, along with liability to customers and staff.
The complexities of restaurant insurance.
Aside from property liability coverage, there’s an important difference to note between general liability (such as a customer slipping on a spilled drink) and professional liability (such as a bout of food poisoning from bad food or inadequate preparation). General liability primarily covers patrons who are injured on your property, as well as property damage, and can protect you from potential lawsuits. Professional liability, on the other hand, protects your restaurant if someone gets sick from spoiled food products.
The hidden risks of running a restaurant.
Other elements that are easy to overlook include the risks of fraud and data theft that come with handling cash and card payments, the risks of spoiled food you have to throw away if there’s a power outage or refrigeration failure, and the risk of lost business if you close for repairs after a fire.
