You need the right insurance policy that suits your business model and will cover you in the event of unforeseeable circumstances.For example, you could be held liable if a customer trips or falls in your premises, while a faulty freezer could destroy your stock or a fire in the kitchen may mean you’ll need to close.

Are Takeaways Lower Risks than Eat in Restaurants?

It stands to reason that the more people you have on your premises and the longer that they stay for, the higher the risk, which is matched with a higher premium. Whilst in most cases this is essentially true, the largest risk factors are your employees and heat.

Takeaways typically use large ranges and griddles to cook food which generate a lot of exposed heat and naked flames. Due to the nature of ‘fast food’ the temperatures are high and the food cooked quickly. Both increase the risk of fire and food poisoning, so these risks outweigh the increased risks of having clientele that stay onsite to eat their food.
