Understanding Restaurant and Cafe Insurance

Insurance Blog

When you have a food industry business, you should get a restaurant and cafe insurance in the case of a fire, theft or flood. This type of insurance can help cover the income you lost, and you will not suffer huge losses even if you had to close temporarily. This will give you enough space and time to restore your restaurant to its previous state. This is similar to if a customer or supplier was injured in your restaurant, and they sued you for damages; the insurance will cover you for this as well.

What the Insurance Covers

  • Liability for the public and products is part of the insurance coverage. The restaurant and cafe insurance will cover legal liabilities to third parties where bodily injuries or property damage occurred as a result of negligence or an accident.
