What Is Snow Cone Shack Insurance?

Snow cone shack insurance is a series of liability coverages that can protect your snow cone business from the costs of third-party injury and property damage claims associated with the industry. Costs can include attorney fees, medical fees, and more. 

Small food and drink businesses can be incredibly profitable and successful, especially in the hot summer months, but they are also open to many liability risks that could cripple a small business. FLIP is here to help!

How Much Does Snow Cone Shack Insurance Cost?

You can purchase insurance for your snow cone business from FLIP starting at just $25.92 per month. Included in this cost is a limit of up to $2,000,000 in General and Product Liability coverage, with up to $10,000 in for Inland Marine (tools and equipment) coverage. If you need additional coverage for your business, we offer supplemental policy options and increased limits for an extra cost. 

The final cost of your policy can be determined by factors such as:

  • The insurance limits you select
  • The gross revenue of your business
  • The length of your coverage

Do I Need Insurance to Sell Shaved Ice?

Yes! Your snow cone or shaved ice business faces a variety of risks that could end in financially catastrophic claims, such as property damage or a customer contracting food poisoning after eating at your stand.

Snow cone stand insurance can shield your business from expensive costs you would otherwise have to pay for out of pocket. With FLIP, you can purchase coverage in 10 minutes or less with our painless online checkout process and continue operating your stand with the peace of mind that comes from being insured.

Does FLIP Provide Coverage for My Trailer?

If you use a detached trailer as part of your snow cone business operations, then you need a Trailer Endorsement. Most general liability policies do not include incidents that occur in, on, or around your food trailer. However, with FLIP’s Trailer Endorsement, you get coverage for those exclusions so you don’t have to leave part of your work station uninsured. 

It is important to note that the Trailer Endorsement only covers liability incidents in, on, or around the trailer when the trailer is detached from your towing vehicle and parked on a rented premise. Make sure your vehicle’s auto policy covers the trailer when it is attached to a vehicle; some auto policies may exclude trailers that have license plates or vehicle identification numbers (VIN).
