Damage to Premises Rented
Your business may take you to many places, so you need insurance that protects you no matter where you are. If you rent a spot at an event, venue, or commercial kitchen, you need coverage that protects the space in case an accident occurs involving your business.
It’s a common practice for event organizers and venues to require their vendors to have insurance and to be included as an additional insured in order to participate in an event. With FLIP, you get unlimited additional insureds free of cost.
Aggregate Limit: $300,000
If your business collects or stores information online, on a computer, or on a mobile device, you could fall victim to cyber theft. Cyber security events can cost tens of thousands of dollars in first- and third-party claims. FLIP offers cyber liability Insurance as an additional policy that can be added to your Food Vendor Liability Insurance plan.
Commercial Auto Insurance
Does your business operate out of a food truck or trailer? FLIP unfortunately does not include commercial auto insurance. However, we are appointed with Progressive to bring you commercial auto insurance if needed, which is available during our application process.
