Why you need insurance for your food trailer

If you own a mobile food business like a food truck, food trailer, or concession trailer, you need general liability insurance.

Wondering why it’s so important?

  • Even if you win a lawsuit the legal cost could ruin your business, and legal fees are covered by insurance policies.
  • Lawsuit out-of-pocket costs for small businesses exceed $35 billion every year.
  • Most events won’t let you attend unless you can show you have the proper coverage to list the event organizers as an additional insured.
