What insurance do I need for my takeaway business?

When you are looking to insure your Fast Food Restaurant, Takeaway Business or Cafe you will be presented with a multitude of choices. Whilst most standard policies will cover you for your kitchen or cooking area (and related equipment), stock, your public, product and employers liability cover together with malicious damage and loss of earning cover should you have to close due to fire, theft, storm or flood, you should also consider covering yourself for theft of money, and glass or shop front damage. If you are intending to do any work to the premises you might need cover for tenant's improvements as well.

In addition to these features, do also consider whether cover in the following areas would be sensible.

  • Goods in Transit Insurance - say if you collect items from the cash and carry

  • Cash off the Premises - if you walk your takeaway food takings to the bank

  • Frozen Food Insurance - protecting you if your freezer(s) break down causing wastage

  • If you undertake deliveries there may be additional factors to take into account depending on whether your food is delivered by your employees or sub contracted deliverers.

  • Legal Expenses insurance covering the costs of legal action should you have disputes with suppliers, or staff employment issues.

  • 'All Risks' insurance covering business property you take from your premises. Remember items such as a laptop you might carry between your home and shop.
