What Is Push Cart Insurance?

Food push cart insurance is a series of coverages designed to protect push cart businesses from the cost of liability claims. When you purchase a push cart policy from Food Liability Insurance Program (FLIP), you receive up to $2,000,000 in coverage for general and product liability.

While our base policy offers comprehensive coverage, you can customize your policy to suit the exact needs of your business. FLIP offers increased limits and optional coverage add-ons, like tools and equipment, cyber liability, and professional liability insurance.

How Much Does Insurance Cost for a Food Push Cart?

You can get a push cart insurance policy for as low as $25.92 per month or $299 per year. Your total cost will depend on a few factors, including:

  • The limits you select
  • The length of your coverage
  • Your gross annual revenue
  • Additional policy options you select


While selecting higher limits or adding optional coverages to your policy will increase the price, you can rest easier knowing your business has customized protection from claims unique to your business activities.

Do Push Carts Need Liability Insurance?

Yes! Food push carts are vulnerable to a number of risks, including third-party bodily injury, property damage, and stolen or damaged equipment.  

As a food vendor, you need insurance that meets the special requirements of your push cart business. With FLIP’s easy online checkout process, you can get a personalized policy for your business in 10 minutes or less that can mitigate (or even eliminate) the cost of claims.

FAQs About Push Cart Insurance

Regardless of the kind of food you sell, running a push cart business leaves you open to a variety of risks:

  • One of your customers contracts a foodborne illness from one of the snow cones you served them and ends up in the hospital.
  • While working an event, your push cart tips over, sustains major damage, and needs to be replaced.
  • A customer trips over your equipment while you’re vending and seriously injures themselves.
  • As you set up your cart at a venue, you accidentally damage the venue’s property and they hold you responsible for repairs.
