Understanding Restaurant Insurance in Ontario

Did you know restaurants are one of the few businesses that are required to have insurance before doors can open? This is mainly a result of serving food and beverages which causes a few factors to come into play: who can receive alcohol, the temperature of the food, how it needs to be prepared, health department requirements regarding the restaurant’s layout, etc.

I would definitely recommend looking here for first-rate customer service! It was my 1st time using an on-line insurance broker, and I would like to thank Warren Drake for making it virtually stress-free! (dare I say enjoyable?) Warren was very professional, courteous, personable & efficient. He made sure, at every juncture, to present me with the options available, ensured that I understood & recommended what he felt was best & why. Stress-free & very good rate! Well done!!

I just started shopping and browsing as I am planning to buy a car in the next few months, and Amy Brown called me to give me all the information I need to make the right decision on what insurance company to choose. She was very professional and very helpful even though she knows I'm buying an insurance in the future as my new car is not ready yet. The rates and coverage she could find me are unbeatable for Toronto Midtown. I highly recommend to anyone looking for an Insurance Broker. Thanks Amy Brown in case you read this message.

I've completed my first year with Duliban Insurance brokers. Signing up for auto insurance I happily saved hundreds of dollars annually for one car. Being a senior with an excellent record Amy Brown made it simple and quick with big savings to begin my new auto policy. I had been with prior insurer for close to 20 years of clean driving. Kudos to Amy and the Duliban Insurance team! Much success!!

What Is Restaurant Insurance?

Restaurant insurance is very similar to Small Business Insurance. It provides restaurant owners and operators with the coverage they need for general liability, accidents, slip and fall claims, property damage, etc. Although, there are a lot of added questions that you’ll want to make sure your insurance coverage plan answers.

The way restaurant insurance works and what your coverage plan should include will vary depending on your specific restaurant (do you serve alcohol, your hours of operation, etc.). Regardless, it is worth it to note that your coverage plan should include much more than just general liability coverage.

 

What Does Restaurant Insurance Cover?

So, what exactly can and should restaurant insurance cover?

  • General Liability: This is the mandatory coverage any restaurant must maintain at the bare minimum and helps protect the restaurant when a person is injured on the premises through things like a slip and fall or other types of general injuries.
  • Property Insurance: This type of restaurant insurance in Ontario will protect your business in the event the restaurant has a fire, vandalism, or other types of property.
  • Commercial Auto: This type of coverage helps protect a restaurant when an employee is injured while driving on the job. It would also help protect any company vehicles in the event of an accident.
  • Food Contamination Coverage: This coverage would help protect the financial interests of the restaurant if a claim is brought against the establishment for food poisoning and will help pay any legal fees and medical fees associated.
  • Business Interruption or Loss of Business: If a business is not able to operate, this coverage can help pay bills, like rent and utilities, and even help pay off loans taken to help open the establishment.

 

Risks Of Not Carrying Restaurant Insurance

In the event of a claim being filed against your business, not having restaurant insurance could be financially devastating. For all businesses but in the restaurant industry especially, being able to stay open is crucial.

To have success in the restaurant industry you must have the ability to operate and not have disruptions to your business. Proper insurance will cover any liabilities and can also help your business stay open and operational despite any disruptions.

 

Should I Get Liquor Liability Insurance For My Restaurant?

If you serve alcohol, the short answer is yes. Having Liquor Liability Insurance is incredibly important for restaurant owners.

As noted by Josh Mashinter, Duliban Farm & Commercial Account Producer,: “Typically, liquor liability is a separate form of coverage under most restaurant policies. If you had a claim that was tied to serving somebody alcohol (i.e., somebody driving off and getting hurt because they were under the influence and overserved at your establishment) it would fall under your liquor liability coverage.”
