A security blanket for your catering business, General Liability insurance covers your legal fees and liabilities in the event your catering business is found liable for any incident or event. The insurance will pay for your catering business' court settlements, legal fees and premiums.
Covers any claims resulting from serving alcohol at an event. Liquor liability is necessary for a Catering Business if you sell, manufacture, distribute, or furnish beer, wine, or liquor.
Whether you have a food trailer, RV or a delivery van, you need Commercial Auto insurance. It pays costs to repair your vehicle and any damages you caused in an accident including injury and property damage.
Workers' Compensation provides monetary benefits to workers who become ill or get injured on the job. This is a no-fault type of insurance in which the claim is paid regardless of who is at fault. The employee is then relinquished of the right to sue the employer of negligence.
Covers major equipment that you rely on to deliver services, like refrigerators. It pays the costs to replace or fix the equipment, in addition to temporary rentals and lost ingredients from the breakdown.
Of course, insurance costs are always on the minds of business owners. While it might feel like just another expense, it really is an investment in your business. That being said, it is really hard to be general when it comes to the cost of insurance because the cost varies per policy. A General Liability Insurance for a catering company, for example, can be as low as $30 a month. There are many factors to take into consideration when an insurance policy premium is determined by the insurance company. Your experience in the industry is taken into account because if you have been in the industry longer, you better understand the potential risks involved. Additionally, if there is a claims history that will cost you more as well. Some other factors that will be considered are the number of employees you have, annual receipts and payroll, coverage limits, deductible amounts, what kind of food you are dealing with, how it is being cooked, and if you have proper risk-avoiding procedures in place.
Contents insurance coverage as a part of a Business Owner's Policy will pay the cost to repair or replace the essential equipment you use to operate your business. In case of fire or other covered loss this insurance can keep you in business when you would otherwise not be able to replace your damaged equipment.
Many food-related business owners wonder if they need food contamination insurance. Regardless of what kind of food you are serving with your catering business, having food contamination insurance is critical. Your food inventory and equipment are the lifeblood of your business. So, mishandled food can lead to food-borne diseases and customer claims - both of which could ruin your business in an instant. With this type of insurance, your catering business is covered in the event of a food-related loss. Food Contamination insurance was created to help a business stay afloat if there is a contamination issue. Even the most trained employees can make mistakes, and something as simple as leaving raw meat out for a little too long, or accidentally using the same cutting board for meat as vegetables can cause a cross-contamination issue. If this happens, not only can this create a product nightmare because you will have to throw all of your food away and purchase new, but the public relations issue could shut down your business. Having the right insurance in place can help you stay afloat and pay for the replacement products so you can keep doing what you love, serving amazing food to your customers.
Catering insurance is intended to cover the liabilities involved in your catering business. Its primary focus is to protect your business against risks that come with serving food to large crowds, damaged equipment, customer/employee injuries, and property damage. While all of these things are very critical to cover in the event of a loss, one often forgot about insurance policy that is just as essential is Liquor Liability.
As a caterer, it is likely that you will choose to serve liquor as well to help bring in some extra cash. After all, most celebrations these days involve alcohol at some point so it would be a really big missed opportunity if you chose not to. However, serving alcohol opens your business up to a whole other list of risks. Because you would be the one serving, if a guest is served too much and something bad happens, you may be held liable. This can be anything from a guest becoming irritated and starting a fight and causing bodily injury, or slipping and falling and hurting themselves or damaging the venue, to them getting behind the wheel and hurting someone, or god forbid killing someone.
A Catering business is in high demand for weddings, corporate parties, anniversary parties, and a variety of other celebrations. You are expected to create and deliver meals, appetizers, and desserts that leave a lasting impression on guests. To build a successful catering business, you need to have a knack for more than just cooking or baking. You need a good work ethic, relationship-building skills, and insurance for your catering services. Caterer insurance protects you during the worst moments when lawsuits or claims threaten your financial strength and reputation.
Not only do you have to worry about protecting your business from claims of bodily injury and property damage, but are you prepared if your employees get hurt on the job? Workers Compensation insurance is a must-have for catering businesses because the chance of slips and falls is so much higher in the foodservice business. Also, if you do any kind of delivery and your employees are using their own vehicles to do so, make sure you have Hired and Non-owned auto liability. If an employee is on the clock and causes an accident, your business could be held liable.
