General & Product Liability
General liability insurance protects you against third-party claims such as property damage, bodily injury, or personal injury. For example, if a customer were to trip and fall in your restaurant and injured themselves.
Product liability insurance covers you if your food products were to make someone ill. For example, if you undercooked and served food that sent a customer to the hospital.
Liquor Liability Insurance
If your restaurant manufactures, distributes, sells, or serves alcoholic beverages, you could be liable if you serve alcohol to a patron who then injures someone or causes property damage. For example, one of your servers provides alcohol to an intoxicated customer who then drives and causes an accident.
Excess Liability Insurance
This provides additional coverage above your general liability limits. For example, if your general liability provides a $1,000,000 limit and a contract requires you to have $4 million you can get the additional $3 million through an excess liability policy.
Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI)
This liability coverage can protect you from lawsuits related to wrongful acts arising from the employment process such as wrongful termination, discrimination, sexual harassment, and retaliation in addition to other types of inappropriate workplace conduct.
Covers damages to your restaurant building and contents due to a covered cause of loss, such as a fire
Inventory insurance protects you against loss such as food spoilage. For example, if fire damage to your refrigeration unit causes your food to spoil this coverage could cover the loss.
Commercial Auto Insurance
If you use a vehicle for your business operations, it may not be covered under your personal automobile insurance. Commercial auto insurance provides coverage while using the vehicle in your business operations.
Covers an employee due to a job-related injury (or death) resulting from a work-related accident or occupational disease.
Franchisee Certificate Compliance
The franchisor agreement outlines specific coverages that need to be maintained by the franchisee, including additional insured status. The Certificate Compliance service assists in tracking franchisor requirements and identifying franchisee coverage deficiencies.
