Catering Business Insurance West Chester, OH  45069Catering Business Insurance

Catering Business Insurance is carefully tailored from the Commercial Package Policy (CPP) framework to address the variety of liability and property exposures that you face in your business as a commercial catering enterprise.  Because you’re selling food, and often using the kitchen facilities at the venues you cater, it is important that your coverage address the risks of food contamination, spoilage, and food borne illnesses.  Additional care and attention is required from the management of the catering and commissary business because the operations encounter the variability that comes from potentially working in a different facility on a regular basis while carrying out your work.  Organizing to be successful for your customer and your business is a minimum requirement under these conditions.

Common types of events you cater include:


Event Catering

Company recognition events

Working business lunch or dinners

College and University events

Graduation or passage events

Private events in residences

Food Tasting Events

Party catering

Church Events

Corporate cafeteria

School, College, University Cafeteria

Biggest Exposures for Catering Business Insurance

Serving food you prepare comes with the great risk of avoiding common allergens and liability and medical expenses that arise from patrons who become ill as a result of your food product represents one of your greatest exposure to loss.  The minimum coverage in every Catering Business Insurance policy is Comprehensive General Liability (CGL).  If your wait staff also serves alcohol you also have the additional burden to avoid over serving your patrons.  You also have the potential liability that comes from the use of banquet hall kitchens, private or commercial kitchens, and other cooking venues like church kitchens.  If your activities result in damage to the premises you are using, you may be responsible for the damage done.  It takes extra consideration to account for the special coverage you may need for these potential exposures.
