Restaurant, Fast Food & Deli Insurance Programs
Restaurants are huge investments that come with great opportunity for success. With that opportunity, however, comes just as great a risk. Serving food to customers comes with its own perils. Food poisoning, choking and other hazards all come with the territory of running a restaurant. You want to make sure the restaurant you’ve built is protected no matter what.
Exceed Insurance understands how exciting a business venture can be. We want to help protect your assets.
Why You Need Coverage
The last thing a business owner wants is for all their hard work to go down a drain. Damage to the store or a bad claim against food poisoning can ruin a restaurant forever. For restaurants that serve alcohol, a patron that crashes their vehicle after drinking at your restaurant can result in expensive legal backlash. With Exceed Insurance, we'll make sure you find a policy that fits your restaurant's needs.
What We Offer
Exceed Insurance works with a long list of insurance carriers to find different policies for unique businesses. Coverage options your restaurant may need include:
- Property Coverage: This coverage protects the restaurant building and its contents.
- Business Income Coverage: In case of an accident where business is suspended, this coverage helps reimburse you for the income lost while the business is unable to run.
- Equipment Breakdown Insurance: Stoves, fryers, refrigerators, freezers and other equipment are incredibly important to restaurants. Equipment Breakdown Insurance helps pay for repairs or replacement of such equipment.
- General Liability Insurance: This offers protection when bodily injury or property damage occurs on the restaurant's property.
- Food Contamination Coverage: This insurance helps pay for food that is spoiled or contaminated — such as food that sours while the refrigerator or freezer isn't working.
- Liquor Liability Coverage: Any business that sells liquor should carry liquor liability insurance. Liquor liability protects the business against claims regarding a patron's actions after drinking at your restaurant.
- Auto/Valet Liability Coverage: Restaurants that offer valet parking should consider carrying valet liability insurance in case damage occurs to either the vehicle or the driver.
- Hired/Non-Owned Vehicle Liability Coverage: If your restaurant uses non-owned vehicles to move or distribute goods, this insurance offers coverage for bodily injury and property damage that may occur while you or an employee is driving.
- Assault And Battery Coverage: This is important for restaurants and bars, especially those that sell alcohol. It may pay legal fees and medical bills in case fighting patrons get injured on the restaurant's property.
