A Comprehensive Business Insurance Solution

Our business insurance for fish and chip shops includes:

  • Public liability insurance In case a member of the public is injured or their property is damaged while on your premises.
  • Employers liability insurance If you employ staff for your fish and chip business, you’re legally responsible to have employers insurance in case they make a claim for injury or illness as a result of working for you.
  • Contents insurance This protects the contents of your fish and chip shop, including all equipment and tools necessary for your work. It can also include protection for stock, and refrigerated, frozen, or hot food cover.
  • Business interruption
    If your business is unable to operate due to repairs or a supplier going out of business, this will help to reimburse you for loss of income and cover your overheads.
  • Buildings cover If you own the building, you need buildings cover in case of damage due to fire, theft, flood, or accidental damage.
  • Financial cover Protects money on your premises, including in a safe.

There are also a number of optional extras you can include if necessary, including subsidence, legal expenses, goods in transit, tenants improvements, and terrorism.
