Is Your Restaurant Protected?

You put your heart and soul into your restaurant to provide your patrons with a memorable dining experience. You know that the smallest details can either add to, or take away from that experience, so you strive to make everything just right.

We take a similar approach to our commercial insurance services.  We’ll take the time explain all the ingredients that go into an insurance policy that manages your risk. We won’t rush through the process, but make sure that you have an understanding of your insurance policy and the coverage it provides.

Risk comes in various forms. We want you to have the protection you need from those potential threats that could put your business in jeopardy. You need a commercial agent with the experience and knowledge who can tailor an insurance plan designed to protect your restaurant as much as possible.

Just as your menu addresses individual tastes, insurance addresses the unique needs and risks of your business. We understand how complicated and confusing commercial insurance can be for many business owners that’s why we’ll sit down with you face to face and get to know about you and your business needs. This also gives you an opportunity to get to know more about us and the various insurance solutions we provide.

This personal approach allows us to develop an understanding of the risks associated with your restaurant. Then we are able to offer you an insurance solution that fits your individual needs, no more and no less. We insure all types of restaurants from family owned operations with a few employees to corporations with several locations and hundreds of employees. Our philosophy of working face to face with our clients means that the local Mom and Pop sandwich shop gets the same level of caring and service as a larger chain of restaurants.
