How Much Does NYC Restaurant Insurance Cost?

This is the most asked question online. Every restaurant, bar, tavern, and nightclub is different. I meet with you in person, see what you're about, what coverage you need, and what coverage you have. Then I can answer your question.

Here are 3 ways I get you the best value

1. We don’t work for just one carrier, and sell that company's policies whether it's best for your business or not. If a carrier is not giving us the best offer, we go to somebody else. If you've been with the same carrier for years, and they increase your premium, we go to different carriers to get the best available coverage at the lowest available price.

2. If I wouldn't place my business with a carrier, I'm not going to place my client's business with a carrier. I research all the carriers that I work with before I even place $1 of business with them.  

3.The best way to reduce your premiums is to do an annual review. You may have had the same broker for years, and they've just been rubber stamping your renewal. I see a lot of shortfalls when I review policies.  If you're paying more than you should be or are unprotected, we look for another better option.

Restaurant Insurance FAQs

How much insurance does a restaurant, bar, tavern, or nightclub need?
Every restaurant needs the basics - general liability, workers compensation, and property insurance. Do you need liquor liability, or auto coverage for deliveries? What if an employee sues you for discrimination? How are you going to manage if you have to shut down due to a fire or weather damage?

How much your restaurant insurance costs is based on the answers to questions like these plus your type of operation, size, location, number of employees, and past claims history. Because we insure many restaurant clients, we know how to match your coverage to the way you operate your business.
