Owning a restaurant is a dream you’ve held for years and now it’s coming true! You’ve thought about your menu, seating options, even your logo, but have you thought about restaurant insurance?
Between your inventory, customers, and the business itself, restaurants carry a large amount of risk. But your pizza parlor, bakery, or cafe is also your livelihood. Is that a risk you’re willing to take? Having the right restaurant insurance policy can prevent you from having to kiss your dream goodbye.
So let’s take a look at 9 essential types of restaurant insurance that will keep you in business for years to come.
I would like to thank one of our agents, Kathy Barton, with suggesting this question for our blog. This is a very specific question and if you have any questions on what exactly your policy covers make sure to call your agent.
Q. I just went grocery shopping and filled my deep freezer and refrigerator right before the big storm hit. My power has been out for 2 days and all the food has spoiled. Will my homeowner’s insurance cover this?
A. Your homeowner insurance may very well cover for spoilage of refrigerated property due to off premises power failure. However, this is usually only by a special add-on that incurs an additional premium. That means that you must request and pay for this specific coverage. It is not part of most standard homeowner policies. When reviewing your policy you should ask your agent what upgrades or optional endorsements, like spoilage coverage, are available through your homeowner insurance company.
