Restaurant Insurance in New York

If you are looking for a fine place to eat with great food, come to New York. We have some of the best places on the planet and such a wide range of foods, cuisine, and atmospheres. You could eat out for an entire year and choose a different place each night if you wanted. When you run an eating establishment here, you need restaurant insurance that covers all your business needs and risks. If not, all kinds of bad things could be waiting to interrupt your business and your life. Let's look at the example story of Blaine B.

Blaine loved working in the food service industry. It gave him a chance to meet the public each day and bring some smiles into lives which sometimes needed them. While he as in high school he worked a local fast food place and after graduation he took training to be a chef. For several years he worked at a restaurant but Blaine missed being with people.

Everyone loved Blaine's sandwiches and so he decided to open up his own sandwich shop in Long Island. He got a business loan and spent some time interviewing the right people for his business. Blaine knew little about risk management and insurance so he contacted an independent insurance agent who was experienced in restaurant and bar insurance. This turned out to be a fateful decision.

When the big day arrived (for his grand opening) Blaine was on top of the world and his enthusiasm spread to his staff and all the customers who came through his doors. Before long, there was a huge line from 11:00 am till past 2:00 pm just about every day.

Blaine was very big on cleanliness and made sure the place was always spotless. However, he didn't count on what would happen just six months later. Torrential rain hit the Long Island area and the sewers in his business backed up one night. This created significant damage and cleanup which took more than a week to fix. Thankfully, Blaine's food service insurance included sewer backups and loss of income coverage, so his place was restored to "good as new" condition and he was reimbursed for the money he lost while his shop was closed for repairs.
