What Is Food Cart Insurance?

Food cart insurance is a liability insurance plan designed to protect your food cart business from the costs of liability claims. Food carts face a variety of liability risks, from trip and fall accidents to customers getting sick from their food. Food cart insurance can reduce and sometimes remove the out-of-pocket cost your business may be required to pay if faced with a liability claim. It creates a financial safety net that allows you to continue running your food cart with peace of mind.

The Food Liability Insurance Program’s (FLIP) food cart insurance program provides food business owners like you with the customizable, comprehensive coverage you need to protect your business from the cost of claims. We understand insurance can sometimes be confusing, that is why it is our job to help you navigate the world of insurance in the easiest and most affordable way possible. If you are a hot dog stand, taco cart, or anything in between, we’re the place for you.

FAQs About Food Cart Insurance

We help cover:

  • Cyber Liability claims. An example of this claim could include a cyber security breach resulting in your sensitive business information being compromised. Cyber Liability insurance is an additional coverage option that you can add in the application or from your user dashboard.
