What is Florida Restaurant Insurance?
It is important for restaurant owners to carry an insurance policy in Florida. The landlord’s policy typically covers the structural elements of the building, not the tenant improvements that you have made to the interior space of your restaurant, to make it attractive dining. If major damages were to occur inside of your restaurant, you are responsible for all repairs.
If you own a Fine Dining Restaurant, Family Restaurant, Franchise Restaurant, Banquet Hall, or Party Center, our restaurant insurance package policy protects all these elements inside your premises.
What kind of Insurance does a restaurant need?
- Improvement & Betterment – This policy covers all the improvements and alterations made to your restaurant. This coverage is important as your total investment can range from $150,000 for a small family restaurant up to a million dollars for fine dining. Such Tenant improvements such as any materials attached to the wall, flooring, fixtures, and ceiling, include the functional items which it takes to run a restaurant such as freezers, commercial stove, hood, along with the furnishings.
- Business Property – This coverage protects your restaurant property from theft, Hurricane damage, fire, high wind, vandalism and more. In other words, If your restaurant contents are damaged due to a named peril, this policy does guarantee restoration of your business property.
- Food Spoilage – Additionally, the policy covers food spoilage due to a power outage or equipment breakdown.
- Loss of Income – If major damage occurs and forces you to close your restaurant to make repairs, this policy pays for your loss of income normally up to 12 months. For example, the loss of income coverage can help you make the lease payment, utility expenses and pay your employees the weekly wages that you owe them. This type of coverage can make a difference between going out of business or reopening after the repairs are completed.
- Restaurant Liability – Business owners have to worry about unexpected lawsuits. This policy is necessary for restaurants serving food and alcohol. If a customer has a slip and fall accident and get injured on your premises, or become sick after eating your food, they could file a lawsuit and seek damages. The best way to defend your business is simply obtaining a general liability insurance policy. This policy pays for damages awarded by the court and provides a local defense lawyer to represent you in the court.
- Liquor Liability – You may also want to request additional liquor liability insurance coverage. For example, if a customer drinks too much alcohol and ends up hurting themselves or someone else, losses might fall back on your business for serving excessive alcohol to an intoxicated customer.
- Restaurant Workers Compensation – If you have over 4 employees on a payroll, it is mandatory in Florida to obtain a Workers Compensation policy to cover your employees for medical expenses and loss of income in the event they get injured on the Job.
Additional coverage is available such as equipment breakdown, employee theft, outdoor sign, and more.
