RETAIL & HOSPITALITY INSURANCE

PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS

In retail and hospitality, you work with the public every day, which exposes your business to many risks.  We help you protect your business against inventory theft, equipment breakdown or other unexpected events.

These are some examples of retail & hospitality businesses that should be protected:

 

Why do retail & hospitality businesses need insurance?

A customer slips on a wet floor

As a business owner, you are responsible for the safety of your premises.  If a customer is injured on your premises, you could be responsible for court costs and any damages awarded.

Someone becomes ill from your product

If you sell or manufacture any product as part of your business, property damage or personal injury that occurs to any third party from use or consumption of that product is your responsibility.  Costs to alleviate the situation could include; costs to recall your product satisfy the cost of injury to the third party and or repair your reputation in the community.

Your debit machine is hacked

Your business will be held responsible for any theft of customer information that was entrusted to you by use of your debit/credit machines.  If your equipment is compromised and customer information is stolen, fines and or legal fees to repair the situation could be enormous for a small business.
