Our Solution for You

SME Insurance Services specialise in providing insurance policies for the fast food industry through our trading style, Takeout Insurance Services. We aim to offer tailor made policies at competitive prices and have a team of experienced representatives who are available to offer expert advice and specialist knowledge on the type and level of insurance you need.

Just as your customers expect their takeaway to be pronto, we understand that many businesses need insurance cover quickly and efficiently. When you’re responsible for running such a fast paced business, it can be difficult to find the time to search for the right insurance cover.

If you find your requirements are considered to be outside of the usual remit offered by insurers, then we can still offer help. This includes:

  • Premises with flat roofs.
  • Risks with high sums insured.
  • Start up businesses.
  • Proposals that have had large claims (including fire or flood).

Please note that our policies do not cover motor risks or delivery risk only and we are unable to offer terms for businesses located in Northern Ireland.

Why Insurance is Important for the Takeaway Industry

Just because your customers are choosing to eat their meals at home, takeaway outlets do not have a reduced risk when it comes to the safety of those customers.

In fact, much like other businesses within the food industry, takeaways should ensure the right level of cover is in place so that their business is protected against potential risks.

The main types of cover that should be considered by those who own a takeaway ranges from public liability, business interruption, employers liability, to contents and stock cover.

Each of these different types of cover will provide you with protection for your business, your employees and of course those who choose to order food from you.

So whether you cook up a mean burger or perhaps know how to top a pizza base, make sure that your business is covered by speaking to a takeaway insurance specialist.

 

About the Takeaway Industry

Whilst a lot of people loves the idea of eating out at a great restaurant, sometimes you just crave a night in, enjoying a delicious meal that you haven’t had to cook yourself.

Such is the appeal of takeaways. Whether it is a pizza, curry or perhaps a rather large bucket of chicken, you have a vast amount of options to choose from. This does not only include the type of cuisine you choose, but also how you get your food (whether you opt for home delivery or collection).

Aside from deciding exactly what it is that you want to offer your customers, people who own and run a takeaway will find that there are plenty of things to think about to ensure that you have happy staff and of course even happier customers.

Making sure that you have the right premises, a great menu and of course quality produce too, will help your business to be a success.
