Insurance for Coffee Shops
Coffee Shops offer an important service to many Americans. With the constant traffic in and out of most Coffee Shops, it is especially important to make sure your shop is properly protected. We will go over some of the most important coverages for your Coffee Shop.
Insurance for Coffee Shops – General Liability
As mentioned above, most Coffee Shops have a lot of foot traffic from customers coming in and out of the premises. If one of these customers were to fall and injure themselves, the Coffee Shop may be held liable. General Liability is designed to protect you against these types of accidents, as well as many other exposures. General Liability for Coffee Shops is often very affordable and easy to obtain.
Insurance for Coffee Shops – Business Personal Property
Business Personal Property for Coffee Shops is an important coverage that can often be overlooked. Business Personal Property can include coverage for your computer systems, coffee brewing equipment, inventory, etc. In addition, you can often add Business Income coverage to the policy, which will pay you for lost wages as a result of a covered property claim. Business Personal Property coverage is usually very affordable and you can often add this coverage to your General Liability by packaging it into what is called a Business Owners Policy.
Insurance for Coffee Shops – Workers Comp
Workers Comp is not only important, but it is required by law in most states. Regardless of your State’s requirements, you should carry Workers Comp for your employees, as you can often be held liable for employee injuries that occur at work. There are several carriers available that offer coverage for Coffee Shops, so finding coverage should be easy. With Workers Comp, it is important to maintain active coverage without lapses. This is because you may be able to obtain pricing credits on your policy by maintaining continuous coverage without lapses.
