Whilst insurance may not be at the forefront of every restaurant owner and publican, it’s important to know how it can benefit your business and if needed, protect you from disasters that threaten your livelihood.
An insurance policy, above all else is a promise to pay a claim upon the event of a certain insured risk. Should your premises suffer from a flood, fire, theft or vandalism, insurance provides the peace of mind that this event will not affect your business financially.
It’s not just the physical stuff which can be insured. For example should your business need to be shut for a few days whilst repair work is carried out following a flood, your Business Interruption policy can step in and pay your lost profit during the period of the closure.
Peace of mind and it’s prudent to do so are not the only reasons to insure your business. If you have employees it’s a legal requirement that you arrange Employers Liability insurance.
Whilst other insurance covers may not be required by law, it makes sense to insure your contents including wines, spirits and cigarettes. Of course you will want to insure your stock of food, but deterioration of frozen food should also be covered in the event of damage to the fridge or freezer that stops it from working correctly.
Public Liability is important and if the premises have a car park, a children’s play area or if the business lets out rooms or holds an event the insurance policy will need to cover all your activities. The policy may also need to extend to include any outside catering events held away from your premises.
Whether you own a family-run restaurant, a casual or fine diner you deserve the very best insurance so your hard earned reputation and business stays looking as good as the food you serve.
