Do you offer delivery service for your restaurant without purchasing a commercial auto insurance policy? Are you relying on your driver’s personal auto insurance to be sufficient in the event of a claim?
If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, you are playing a high risk game of Russian roulette. Personal auto policies often contain a business pursuit exclusion, which specifically names pizza and food delivery. In other words, if a claim occurs while your driver is on the clock, the claim will be denied. Even if the claim is collectable from their insurance carrier, the driver’s coverage may only provide minimum state limits, which may not be sufficient to pay the claim. Ultimately, the employer is responsible, and the injured party will seek restitution from the business owner — you.
AmWINS Program Underwriters offers the PizzaPro insurance program, which is tailored to meet the specific coverage needs of pizza and deli operations offering delivery service. Our underwriting team has provided this specialized coverage nationally for more than 25 years.
The PizzaPro program provides package insurance coverage for franchised and independently owned restaurants, including a Business Owners Policy (which covers your store and its operations) and Owned, Hired and Non-Owned Auto Liability (which covers your deliveries). Additional coverages, such as Employment Practices Liability and Excess/Umbrella, are also available. AmWINS Program Underwriters also has the flexibility to offer standalone Hired and Non-Owned Auto Liability without the full package.
Protection for your business doesn’t have to be expensive. The PizzaPro program delivers competitive rates to qualified pizza and deli operations. Eligible operations should have established MVR, insurance monitoring and training procedures, as well as a minimum of three years restaurant management experience.
