Mobile food vendors have their challenges most every day. Running a kitchen on wheels makes every owner aptly skilled with plumbing, electrical and all types of construction and repair. Sometimes contractors can be engaged and it is wise in certain circumstances, yet food cart and truck owners are DIY people by nature. However, when it comes to insurance, where do you turn?
Most owners turn to their personal insurance broker who may or may not be skilled enough to know the ins and outs of insuring a mobile food unit. That’s why I recommend working with companies who specialize in food truck and cart insurance. Insure My Food works hard to make insurance easy and affordable for the industry. Simple application forms, the ability to pay with a credit card and quick turnaround on certificates puts them in a position to be a good member of the mobile food community. Standard forms for property, auto and liability insurance weren’t sufficient or designed for food trucks that operate as a mobile business which could create gaps in coverage. Insure My Food understands these gaps and work to inform the customer so that you’re covered.
Insurance is key to operating a successful mobile food business. Getting catering jobs or working with corporate clients will require proof of insurance and certificates. Some companies just can’t do that quickly. Insure My Food Trailer can. As a sponsor of the ROAM Mobile Food Conference for 2014, Insure My Food has committed to partnering with the ever growing and ever evolving street food industry. If you’re looking for a new policy or would just like to make sure you’re covered at the right price, drop them a line. You can find more details about Insure My Food at InsureMyFood.com.
