Coffee Shop Insurance from Massachusetts Specialists

What is Coffee Shop Insurance?

Many baristas dream of opening cafes, but their dream can become a nightmare if the right protections aren’t in place. Coffee shop insurance can help shield Massachusetts cafes from a variety of expensive claims.

Coffee shop insurance policies are specialized commercial policies for cafes. Most policies come as package policies that provide both property and liability provisions.

What Massachusetts businesses is cafe insurance for?

Most Massachusetts coffee shops, cafes and similar businesses can benefit from the protections that cafe insurance provides. Bakeries, bistros, delis and ethnic cafes might all want this insurance.

An insurance agent who knows these businesses well can help them determine whether cafe insurance or another insurance is better for their situation. Some businesses might need a slightly different food truck or restaurant insurance policy, but cafe policies tend to work well for many of these businesses.

Is liquor liability coverage available through cafe insurance policies?

While liquor liability coverage isn’t a standard feature of all cafe policies, it usually can be selected as an optional feature. Coffee shops that serve alcohol normally need liquor liability coverage in order to secure a liquor license. In the event of a claim, the liability coverage could insulate against a large insurance claim.

How much are premiums for Coffee Shop policies?

Premiums for coffee shop policies can vary, but they tend to be affordable considering their coverage provisions. Some of the specific details that can impact a cafe’s insurance rates include the cafe’s:

  • Location
  • Building size
  • Annual sales
  • Past claims history

Of course, chosen coverages impact rates too. Cafes that need commercial auto and/or liquor liability coverage have to pay the additional premiums for those.

Cafes can easily research how much they’ll have to pay for insurance by working with an independent insurance agent. Whereas captive agents usually are obligated to favor a particular insurance company, independent agents are under no such obligation. They’re able to recommend the best policies, based on coverages and costs, regardless of what insurance company is offering those policies.
