Insurance for Caterers
As a caterer, you take on many different risks, and you need insurance that meets the requirements of your business. Because you may prepare food in different kitchens, serve food at multiple venues, you want insurance that covers your liability and equipment at any location. FLIP insurance is non-premise specific so you can feel comfortable knowing you are insured anywhere in the United States.
Financial setbacks from a liability claim could close down your catering business. Don’t let unforeseen events close down your catering business. For just $299 a year, you'll get comprehensive catering insurance that includes general and product liability, and business personal property coverage. Many other event policies exclude product liability which is an essential coverage for caterers.

- Full-Service Caterers

Common Insurance Questions:
A basic catering insurance policy from FLIP starts at $299. However, there are coverage options that you may add to your policy for an additional premium. For example, you may choose to increase your business personal property coverage limits if you have expensive equipment that would cost more to replace than what is available under our standard limits. Or you might want to add professional liability coverage if you teach cooking classes. With FLIP, you can structure the insurance you need to the type of catering business you operate.
All caterers need catering insurance to protect their business from claims and defense costs associated to the operation of their catering business. Without insurance, you and your catering business could be devastated if a client becomes ill after eating your food, if you damage somebody's property, or if your equipment is stolen. Since most caterers operate at multiple locations, caterers need insurance that goes where they go. FLIP insurance is portable and is not specific to any one location.
Insurance for caterers is a policy designed to respond to claims that may occur in your day-to-day operations of your catering business. Covered claims may include slip and fall accidents, equipment loss, third party property damage, or other mishaps. Catering insurance from the Food Liability Insurance Program (FLIP) includes coverages like business personal property/inland marine, general liability, product liability, and damage to premises rented coverage.
